Free Preview Screening:
Mortal Instruments - City of Bones

Hey guys - back with another opportunity to see a movie before your friends and for absolutely no cost to you. Except perhaps the cost of standing in line, maybe having your bag searched by movie security dudes, and various related indignities. But mostly seeing a movie for free. It's important to stay focused on that point. 

The film in question is the comprehensively titled Mortal Instruments - City of Bones. Which at first I thought was a reboot of something scary I didn't want to see years back involving Morgan Freeman. But turns out is some YA looking story of magical female empowerment that tries to capture a bit of Twilight / CW-esque magic. At least that's what I gather from the trailer and this description of the film I found over at IMDb
"Set in contemporary New York City, a seemingly ordinary teenager, Clary Fray (Lily Collins), discovers she is the descendant of a line of Shadowhunters, a secret cadre of young half-angel warriors locked in an ancient battle to protect our world from demons. After the disappearance of her mother (Lena Headey), Clary must join forces with a group of Shadowhunters, who introduce her to a dangerous alternate New York called Downworld, filled with demons, warlocks, vampires, werewolves and other deadly creatures. Based on the worldwide best-selling book series. -- The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones"
Frankly, they had me at "secret cadre of half -angel warriors." For those who think I'm just being a snarky bastard I've got two things to say. First, OK - you got me. Second, in this case I'm actually being serious - if you've been paying attention then you know I'm sucker for this stuff. Just ask me about Vampire Diaries if you don't believe. 

The screening is at the AMC Pacific Place theater. Monday Aug 19th. The fun kicks off at 7pm but you'll probably want to be there by 6pm to queue up. These things are overbooked to ensure a full house and kidding aside feels like there will be a lot of interest in this one.
