This Week in Tickets EXTRA (with contest!)

I don't think I missed anything big in the regular TWIT post. There are a couple of notable events at the FEI Theater chain: The Somerville Theatre is offering swag bags for the first 50 people to come to 8pm show of Sex and the City 2 on Thursday (27 May 2010); the Arlington Capitol has HD presentations of Norma (Saturday, 22 May 2010), part of an Opera In Cinema series, and Psycho as part of a weekly "Capitol Classic Films: Hitchcock in HD" series (Sunday, 23 May 2010 at 3pm with a repeat Thursday 27 May 2010 at 7:30pm).

(The notable bit there being that Universal is pushing a bunch of HD Hitch transfers good enough to be shown in theaters; hopefully Blu-ray releases aren't far behind!)

But, the main reason for this post is that the good people at Music Box Films have provided me with a pair of tickets to OSS 117: Lost In Rio to give away. They're good for any showing of OSS 117: Lost in Rio at the Kendall Square Theatre in Cambridge, MA on Monday - Thursday during its run. Since Lost in Rio is only scheduled for a one week run, that basically means 24 May 2010 - 27 May 2010, unless you want to gamble on it being held over another week.

This is my first giveaway, so I'll keep it simple and non-judgmental: If you're not doing so already, follow me on Twitter (@JaySeaver) and (re)tweet a link to a review of a fun foreign film (either here or at eFilmCritic); I'll randomly select one at 11:59pm Sunday and contact the winner for his/her email address, so that Music Box can send you tickets in time for a Monday matinee.

Open to everyone except @seaverm and @GastroJunkie (or other family members), because I'm not wholly corrupt and would like to do this again after next week.
