Steven Spielberg has invited folks from 10 cities for a movie night.
The director will preview War Horse starting at 2 p.m. EST on Sunday in simultaneous screenings around the country, followed by a Q&A with journalist (and EW contributor) Mark Harris. The interview will take place live in the New York theater and be sent via satellite to the others, taking place in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Dallas, Boston, Washington DC, Seattle, Miami, and Atlanta.
Tickets were given out at bookstores, libraries and local stage theaters, and the RSVP list is already full, according to Disney/DreamWorks. If you weren’t one of the lucky few, you can still watch the Q&A live online at MSN.com. Questions can be sent to Harris via a chat function accompanying the streaming video.
War Horse tells the story of a farmboy (newcomer Jeremy Irvine) and the thoroughbred he raised, both of who find themselves trapped in different parts of the carnage that took place in France during World War I. Some individual screenings have taken place over the past month, and the movie opens for the general public on Dec. 25.
