    AMC Entertainment and Lionsgate to Keep
    'AKEELAH AND THE BEE' F-R-E-E to U.S. Teachers

    WHAT:
    With teachers swarming their local AMC theatres this past
    weekend and AKEELAH AND THE BEE holding strong in the top ten,
    AMC Entertainment and Lionsgate are extending the offer for
    every teacher in the United States to receive one free ticket to
    the film Friday, May 19 through Thursday, May 25, 2006. The
    offer is valid exclusively at all theatres in the AMC system
    including: Loews Theatres, Star Theatres and Magic Johnson Theatres

    WHEN: Friday, May 19 thru Thursday, May 25, 2006
    Simply present a school issued ID card and a valid photo ID or a
    pay stub and a valid photo ID to your local AMC theatre playing the film.
    (Check local listings for participating theatres.)

    WHY: In an effort to reward teachers at the end of the school year
    for their hard work and encourage them to see the inspiring
    education-themed movie AKEELAH AND THE BEE, AMC Entertainment
    and Lionsgate are extending the unprecedented offer for every
    teacher in the United States to receive one free ticket to the film.

    A motivating drama, AKEELAH AND THE BEE is the story of Akeelah Anderson (Keke Palmer),
    a precocious eleven-year old girl from south Los Angeles
    with a gift for words. Despite the objections of her mother Tanya (Angela Bassett),
    Akeelah enters various spelling contests,
    for which she is tutored by the forthright
    Dr. Larabee (Laurence Fishburne); her principal Mr. Welch
    (Curtis Armstrong) and the proud residents of her neighborhood.
    Akeelah's aptitude earns her an opportunity to compete for a
    spot in the Scripps National Spelling Bee and in turn unites her
    neighborhood who witness the courage and inspiration of one
    amazing little girl. A Lionsgate, 2929 Productions and
    Starbucks Entertainment Presentation of an Out of the Blue
    Entertainment and Reactor Films Production in association with
    Cinema Gypsy Productions, Inc,
    AKEELAH AND THE BEE was written and directed by Doug Atchison.

    It's kinda off-topic, but "Akeelah" (Keke) the star of the show used to take lessons at the music school where I work. She is a very nice person and is very respectful! I'm glad to see her get her big debut!

    Now if we only had an AMC theatre in this town! By the time I drive an hour and half due north to the closest one, I would have spent enough cash on gasoline that it wouldn't matter.

    Oy.

    We have Carmike theatres and Cinemark and one, teeny-tiny independent theatre.

    Is this a second promotion? I was trying to find a source for it and all sources are saying this was on the 12-14. Just trying to find the source of the official release for the people I work with.

    Strike that... found the answer. This is the second promotion.

    I would have loved to have done this ... but in checking all my AMC theaters that are even remotely close to me, the film will not be playing at any of them come May 19. Nice offer but no theater to see it in!

    Bumping this... wondering if anyone saw this movie? I saw a screening last night. Was wondering what everyone thought. Didn't see a thread on this.
    I cried.
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Haven't seen it... friend of mine that works at Starbucks thought it was a cute movie -- she said it was destined to be a Lifetime movie.

    People at my work, though... they all loved it. Couldn't stop talking about how great it was.

    Oh it was better than a Lifetime movie, for sure!
