Celebrating 24 days until The Hunger Games hits theaters as well as the 24 tributes that will participate in the life-or-death annual event, Lionsgate has announced 24 advance screenings that fans can win admission to through a Twitter campaign. Check out the official details below and may the odds be ever in your favor!
Fans can show their support for #HungerGames24 by visiting Screenings.TheHungerGamesMovie.com and tweeting a unique hashtag assigned to their closest city to unlock Advance Screening locations. Starting tomorrow, March 1, the top four cities with the most Twitter volume will be announced each day and fans will then be able to enter to win tickets to those locations.
In addition, Barnes & Noble is giving NOOK fans in select cities the opportunity to gain exclusive access to see The Hunger Games before its official theatrical release. On March 10, while supplies last, the first customers to purchase any of Barnes & Noble’s award-winning NOOK devices (including NOOK Tablet, NOOK Color or NOOK Simple Touch) at select Barnes & Noble stores will receive two complimentary tickets to the official Advance Screening on March 21. To locate participating Barnes & Noble stores, visit www.nook.com/hungergames.
In the story, Tributes are sponsored based on their first impression at the opening ceremonies, training scores, impressions made in the interviews, performance in the arena, as well as a number of other factors. Donations from sponsors range from medicines to food to weapons and more. Because of this, Lionsgate brought on 12 DISTRICT SPONSORS to each host two of these Advance Screenings and offer 24 fans the chance to win a pair of tickets.
The digital campaign follows those for #HungerGames100, #HungerGames74, and #HungerGames50, which marked milestones in the campaign with similar interactive fan activities.
Be sure to register for a District here and learn more about how to impress your sponsors on Facebook.
Fans who don’t have an advance screening near them may be able to meet and greet the cast at their local mall during the National Mall Tour beginning in March. Visit the film’s Facebook events tab for more information.
