Been working so hard, punching your card? Playing so cool, obeying every rule? How about taking a break for a free movie?
Fans of the original 1984 version of "Footloose" have been wondering for months now if the remake will live up to the Kevin Bacon-starring original. Now, some moviegoers can find out — a full two weeks before the film's official release.
Paramount Pictures announced Tuesday that screenings of the new version of "Footloose," which stars Kenny Wormald, Dennis Quaid and "Dancing With the Stars" alum Julianne Hough, will be held Friday in 25 markets. The screenings are free. Fans can RSVP at www.FootlooseFriday.com, although that site notes that a response does not guarantee admittance.
The cities are Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Houston, Kansas City, Los Angeles, Miami, Minneapolis, New York, Orlando, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Sacramento, Salt Lake City, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle, St. Louis, Tampa, Toronto and Washington.
The studio must be feeling pretty good about the film — they're encouraging fans to tweet their reactions after seeing the movie.
"Footloose," of course, is the story of a town where dancing is forbidden, and the new kid (then Bacon, now Wormald) who arrives and shakes things up.
Let's hear it for the (new) boy!
Will you see "Footloose," whether free or not?
