Certainly this will be the case with upcoming sequels Spider-Man 3, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and maybe even Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End. But in a bit of a surprise move, Dimension will be offering such a sneak peek of its eagerly awaited double-feature-within-a-single-release, Grindhouse. The only problem is that it is being limited to select cities. So, if you aren't near a major metropolis, you'll just have to wait about ten hours until your local theater opens for the first matinee.
There are definitely enough followers of Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez to make these exclusive screenings sell out, so if you can get to one, make sure and order your tickets now. And if you want to make this event on par with the other release-eve sneaks that I've been to, you should dress up as your favorite character from the duo's other films, or if you so desire, from one of the two films they've made for Grindhouse (if anyone can do Rose McGowan's machine gun leg, I want pictures!). If you can't attend any of the shows tomorrow night, you can still at least watch Eli Roth's fake trailer that is included in the Grindhouse package, as it has already popped up online.
Here is the list of cities showing Grindhouse Thursday night: Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Seattle, Washington DC. (I guess Austin doesn't need another bonus, huh?)
