Christmas has come early mi gente!!! I have free passes for you to go see THE GRINCH!!!! Yup, each pass is good for you plus three so you can be more Santa than the Grinch and take you littles with you. And please don’t tell JustaBXgirl about this because I am being a complete Grinch and not taking her. We will be going to see the movie when it is released on November 9th but can’t make this advance screening because mama hasn’t figured out how to clone herself and be in two places at once.
The screening takes place on Wednesday, November 7th at 7:30pm. It’s in the heart of the city at AMC Empire 25, 234 W. 42nd St., New York, NY 10036. Make sure to download your passes before they’re all gone! Please remember to get there early because tickets do not guarantee seats. The lines for this one are going to be long!
In case you’re from a different planet and aren’t familiar with The Grinch here’s what the movie is about:
For their eighth, fully animated feature, Illumination and Universal Pictures present The Grinch, based on Dr. Seuss’ beloved holiday classic. The Grinch tells the story of a cynical grump who goes on a mission to steal Christmas, only to have his heart changed by a young girl’s generous holiday spirit. Funny, heartwarming and visually stunning, it’s a universal story about the spirit of Christmas and the indomitable power of optimism.
Academy Award® nominee Benedict Cumberbatch lends his voice to the infamous Grinch, who lives a solitary life inside a cave on Mt. Crumpet with only his loyal dog, Max, for company. With a cave rigged with inventions and contraptions for his day-to-day needs, the Grinch only sees his neighbors in Who-ville when he runs out of food.
Each year at Christmas they disrupt his tranquil solitude with their increasingly bigger, brighter and louder celebrations. When the Whos declare they are going to make Christmas three times bigger this year, the Grinch realizes there is only one way for him to gain some peace and quiet: he must steal Christmas. To do so, he decides he will pose as Santa Claus on Christmas Eve, even going so far as to trap a lackadaisical misfit reindeer to pull his sleigh.
Meanwhile, down in Who-ville, Cindy-Lou Who—a young girl overflowing with holiday cheer—plots with her gang of friends to trap Santa Claus as he makes his Christmas Eve rounds so that she can thank him for help for her overworked single mother. As Christmas approaches, however, her good-natured scheme threatens to collide with the Grinch’s more nefarious one. Will Cindy-Lou achieve her goal of finally meeting Santa Claus? Will the Grinch succeed in silencing the Whos’ holiday cheer once and for all?
