Win Tickets To The Advance Screening of SELMA in St. Louis

By  | 

SELMA

In his review, Omar P.L. Moore (PopcornReel.com) says, “SELMA is an instant classic, a film that will be revered and applauded throughout the annals of American history, long after we are gone.”

SELMA is the story of a movement. The film chronicles the tumultuous three-month period in 1965, when Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. led a dangerous campaign to secure equal voting rights in the face of violent opposition. The epic march from Selma to Montgomery culminated in President Johnson (Tom Wilkinson) signing the Voting Rights Act of 1965, one of the most significant victories for the civil rights movement.

Director Ava DuVernay’s SELMA tells the story of how the revered leader and visionary Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (David Oyelowo) and his brothers and sisters in the movement prompted change that forever altered history.

Starring David Oyelowo, Tom Wilkinson, Cuba Gooding Jr., Alessandro Nivola, Giovanni Ribisi Common, Carmen Ejogo, Lorraine Toussaint, with Tim Roth and Oprah Winfrey as “Annie Lee Cooper,” SELMA opens in St. Louis on Friday, January 9.

WAMG invites you to enter for a chance to win passes (Good for 2) to the advance screening of SELMA on January 6 at 7PM in the St. Louis area. We will contact the winners by email.

Martin Luther King Jr. and Coretta Scott King led thousands of protesters during the Selma to Montgomery March in March 1965.

    Where is the screening going to be held? That info can help us decide whether we are going to take up a seat or not and prevent time wasted in releasing passes and hopefully more accurate expectations for how many will actually show up.
