Boston: Free Dolittle Advanced Screening Tickets for January 11th

Iron Man is coming to a theater near you on January 17th and beyond to portray the title character in the movie Dolittle. To create a little buzz before the opening, there will be an advanced screening of the film on Saturday, January 11th at the AMC Boston Common at 10 am. If you're interested in attending, sign-up for passes at the link below.

Getting a pass does not guarantee seating. They purposely try to give out more passes then the theater can fit to ensure a full-house. Thus, seating is first-come, first-served, and plan to arrive early. I've been to some screenings which were over attended, and I've also been to some where I probably could have counted everyone on my fingers and toes. I haven't figured out how to gauge expectations for attendance, so, plan to arrive early for the best chance of getting a seat. And, if you want snacks, grab the seats first, or have someone wait on line for snacks while someone else grabs the seats. Each pass you sign up for is good for up to two seats.

Robert Downey Jr. electrifies one of literature’s most enduring characters in a vivid reimagining of the classic tale of the man who could talk to animals: Dolittle.

After losing his wife seven years earlier, the eccentric Dr. John Dolittle (Downey), famed doctor and veterinarian of Queen Victoria’s England, hermits himself away behind the high walls of Dolittle Manor with only his menagerie of exotic animals for company.

But when the young queen (Jessie Buckley, Wild Rose) falls gravely ill, a reluctant Dolittle is forced to set sail on an epic adventure to a mythical island in search of a cure, regaining his wit and courage as he crosses old adversaries and discovers wondrous creatures.

The doctor is joined on his quest by a young, self-appointed apprentice (Dunkirk’s Harry Collett) and a raucous coterie of animal friends, including an anxious gorilla (Oscar winner Rami Malek), an enthusiastic but bird-brained duck (Oscar winner Octavia Spencer), a bickering duo of a cynical ostrich (The Big Sick’s Kumail Nanjiani) and an upbeat polar bear (John Cena, Bumblebee) and a headstrong parrot (Oscar winner Emma Thompson), who serves as Dolittle’s most trusted advisor and confidante.

The film also stars Antonio Banderas, Michael Sheen (The Queen) and Oscar winner Jim Broadbent and features additional voice performances from Oscar winner Marion Cotillard, Frances de la Tour, Carmen Ejogo, Ralph Fiennes, Selena Gomez, Tom Holland, and Craig Robinson.

Directed by Academy Award® winner Stephen Gaghan (Syriana, Traffic), Dolittle is produced by Joe Roth and Jeff Kirschenbaum under their Roth/Kirschenbaum Films (Alice in Wonderland, Maleficent) and Susan Downey (Sherlock Holmes franchise, The Judge) for Team Downey. The film is executive produced by Robert Downey Jr., Sarah Bradshaw (The Mummy, Maleficent) and Zachary Roth (Maleficent: Mistress of Evil).
