Tim Burton’s Live-Action DUMBO Advance Screening

Disclosure AffiliateDumbo Movie Poster

We are soooo excited about the all-new DUMBO movie coming to theatres everywhere March 29th. What’s even more exciting is that we all have a chance to see it early!! (Keep reading for passes.)

Tim Burtons Dumbo

If you have already seen the Dumbo trailers, I have a feeling you’re also looking forward to this new Tim Burton version of Dumbo. If you haven’t seen the trailer yet, check it out:



About Tim Burton’s DUMBO:

From Disney and visionary director Tim Burton, the all-new grand live-action adventure DUMBO expands on the beloved classic story where differences are celebrated, family is cherished and dreams take flight. Circus owner Max Medici (Danny DeVito) enlists former star Holt Farrier (Colin Farrell) and his children Milly (Nico Parker) and Joe (Finley Hobbins) to care for a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him a laughingstock in an already struggling circus. But when they discover that Dumbo can fly, the circus makes an incredible comeback, attracting persuasive entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere (Michael Keaton), who recruits the peculiar pachyderm for his newest, larger-than-life entertainment venture, Dreamland. Dumbo soars to new heights alongside a charming and spectacular aerial artist, Colette Marchant (Eva Green), until Holt learns that beneath its shiny veneer, Dreamland is full of dark secrets.

Free Film Screening of THE PUBLIC and Q&A with Emilio Estevez Tomorrow

Join Minneapolis Central Library for a special (free) movie screening of THE PUBLIC, a new film written, produced, and directed by Emilio Estevez. The screening takes place tomorrow (Sunday, March 17th) starting at 2 pm. Minneapolis Central Library is located at 300 Nicollet Mall.

It’s appropriate that this is taking place in a library as this film is about downtown Cincinnati librarians Stuart Goodson (played by Emilio Estevez) and Myra (played by Jena Malone) who see their regular winter day shaken up when homeless patrons decide to take shelter in their library for the night. What starts as a peaceful sit-in quickly escalates into a face-off with the police and the media.



After the screening, there will be a brief Q&A with Emilio Estevez. Doors open at 1:15 pm and seating is very limited and will be given on a first-come, first served basis. There is no overflow seating available. The film has a PG-13 rating and opens in theaters on Friday, April 5th.

More details HERE.
