My Eastside Social Club received passes for a FREE screening and EARLY entry to "Promised Land" and I'd like to share our extra passes so you can join us. The movie starts at 7pm, early entry around 6:15pm, but you must be there by 6pm to get checked off the list and get your pass. Cannot say if you'd be allowed in after 6:15pm so don't be late. Space is limited and not guaranteed, however for the last screening everyone who signed and showed up got in and the theater wasn't full - I'm sure more would have been allowed in (happened before), so chances could be good for you getting in on this one. Please read the event details before posting questions and follow the instructions. Much appreciated! ~Claudette
This is how it works:
- Passes are 1st come, 1st served for early entry according to when you RSVP. Availability not guaranteed and I won't know how many passes are available until we're there. If you can't join us for the early entry, there's a chance you might join the general admission group - so come out and see - better than waiting hours to get in.
- This event is for Members only. If you note +1 (or the like), your RSVP will be removed.
- Arrive no later than 6pm. Meet along the side of the escalator facing the poster wall (i.e. on the right as you go up the escalator). Claudette will arrive by 6pm to hand out the screening tickets at the theater. If you are late, you may lose your spot.
- Previous no-shows to any of my limited spaced events will be removed from the RSVP list (unless we've discussed it). Courtesy counts!
PROMISED LAND is directed by Gus Van Sant (Good Will Hunting, Focus’ Milk). The film’s original screenplay is by John Krasinski & Matt Damon and its story by Dave Eggers.
In this contemporary drama, corporate salesman Steve Butler (Matt Damon) arrives in a rural town with his sales partner, Sue Thomason (Academy Award winner Frances McDormand). With the town having been hit hard by the economic decline of recent years, the two outsiders see the local citizens as likely to accept their company’s offer, for drilling rights to their properties, as much-needed relief. What seems like an easy job for the duo becomes complicated by the objection of a respected schoolteacher (Academy Award nominee Hal Holbrook) with support from a grassroots campaign led by another man (John Krasinski) who counters Steve both personally and professionally.
PROMISED LAND also stars Rosemarie DeWitt, Scoot McNairy, and Titus Welliver; and is produced by Matt Damon, John Krasinski, and Chris Moore. MPAA-rated “R” (for language), the film has a running time of approximately 110 minutes.

FYI: A couple other select Meetup groups have been invited to this event so there will be more people attending than you see RSVPd here. Please sign up for one group only.
