See Preview of Kings of Summer, New Independent Film

Premiering to rave reviews at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, THE KINGS OF SUMMER is a unique coming-of-age comedy about three teenage friends - Joe, Patrick and the eccentric and unpredictable Biaggio - who, in the ultimate act of independence, decide to spend their summer building a house in the woods and living off the land. Free from their parents' rules, their idyllic summer quickly becomes a test of friendship as each boy learns to appreciate the fact that family - whether it is the one you're born into or the one you create - is something you can't run away from.

We have been offered a very nice opportunity to see this film for free on Wednesday night before it opens on Friday.  The passes are limited, so please feel pretty sure that you can attend before signing up.  Once we have the people signed up, I'll post the link for your passes.  They'll kindly reserve seats for us in the theater.  The film starts at 7, but it's good if you can get there by around 6:30.  Again, we'll continue to get these if we fill the seats (and spread the word if we enjoy it), so please be respectful of this opportunity.  Thanks!  :-)

CBS Films (1hr 33min). Opens May 31.
CAST: Nick Robinson, Gabriel Basso, Moises Arias, Nick Offerman, Megan Mullally, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Alison Brie
DIR: Jordan Vogt-Roberts

    Everyone I spoke with in the group was very friendly, as were the members of another meetup group attending a different movie. The movie itself was funny and very relateable for me.

    I found Kings of Summer to be a refreshing change to what is generally an all-too-familiar young men coming-of-age type of film. I can see why it is compared to earlier works such as Stand by Me, but it is significantly different from that film in many ways.

    Just RSVP'd no, I live in Leesburg, not familiar with DC and $11 parking is a bit much. Enjoy whoever gets my spot.

    I'm excited about this! For souls overboard on the waitlist - there's a ladies movie night group that still has a few spots to see the movie - same venue, same night. Looking forward to enjoying the experience
