    D23 Special Screening of "Secretariat"

    Our friends at Walt Disney Studios are offering D23 Members and their families an exclusive sneak peek at Secretariat, the remarkable true story of horse racing's legendary 1973 Triple Crown winner. The movie will be shown at the historic Studio Theatre on the Walt Disney Studio Lot.

    The beautiful and emotional film tells the story of housewife and mother Penny Chenery (Diane Lane), who agrees to take over her ailing father's Virginia-based Meadow Stables, despite her lack of horse-racing knowledge. Against all odds, Chenery — with the help of veteran trainer Lucien Laurin (John Malkovich) — manages to navigate the male-dominated business, ultimately fostering the first Triple Crown winner in 25 years and what may be the greatest racehorse of all time.

    The film strives for authenticity, and Penny Chenery, now 87, was an important resource during the making of the film. Secretariat is directed by Randall Wallace, whose directorial credits include We Were Soldiers, and is the Oscar®- and Golden Globe®-nominated screenwriter of Braveheart.

    Please note, no cameras of any kind will be permitted inside the theater. This includes still cameras, video cameras and cell phones with built in cameras. We suggest you leave these in your car, or you will be asked to check them in the lobby of the theater.

    Secretariat arrives in theaters nationwide on October 8, but D23 Members and their guests get to see this unforgettable film nearly a month before the general public!

    NOTE: Available only to D23 Members in good standing. Members may reserve a ticket for themselves and three (3) guests. There are a limited number of tickets available. D23 Members will be required to provide their membership number when reserving tickets. Tickets may be picked up only with a valid photo ID AND D23 MEMBERSHIP CARD. D23 Members who do not bring their membership card may not be admitted to the event. Ticketed Members who do not attend the event forfeit their place as well as all experiences, benefits, and gifts associated with the event. All D23 Special Events are subject to change without notice. If you wish to request for sign language interpreting services for this event, please submit your request to [email protected] at least two weeks prior to the event date.

    I know I shouldn't go just because it means me skipping class, but for an early preview, it's sure hard to say no to this, especially with the "FREE" pricetag...

    I'm very excited about this film. Won't be able to attend the studio screening, but I will not miss the opportunity to see it at my local cinema.

    What an awesome privelege for D23 members. Would be heading to the studio screening of Secretariat at full gallop if I could. What an amazing race horse, and dramatic story! Alas, I'm stuck in the stable on this one. Next year, I hope to stop horsing around and become a D23 member as I it appears to me that Disney will be extending many different kinds of unique opportunities in the future.

    A number of word-of-mouth screenings are scheduled to be held at the studio, as well as at varoius theatres throughout Southern California. Nice that they threw one to D23.

    It will be interesting to see how fast the tickets go for this film, compared to Camp Rock!

    I've seen some previews and honestly the film looks rather dull. We've been attending the 50 and fabulous screenings at the studio but I'm not sure if I'd bother with this one.

    Interesting way of getting the tickets. At 12:05pm, I hope my email made it in time!

    See you all there (or at Destination D)!

    Yeah, that was a little different. Hope I got in! My dad is an avid horseracing fan and I would love to take him.

    I have attended quite a few free preview screenings in the area and it will be interesting to see how a Disney one goes. I wonder if they will have the guys watching you with night vision goggles to make sure you don't record!

    Re: Special Preview Screening of Secretariat - September 13th, 2010

    Did anyone NOT get a ticket who requested one?

    I think they did tickets this way so that there was no way to tell if the film is perceived as unpopular? If the preview for this film had tickets available for days and days and days (like Camp Rock), that would then be a publicity disaster. (I don't think that Camp Rock ever sold out, but I could be wrong about that. But Tickets were available in a relative small theater for many, many days. Yikes!)

    I saw someone during camp rock 2 come out with night vision binoculars. I wouldn't be surprised if they did the same for this.
