bay area: win finishing the game tickets right now

According to Box Office Mojo, Finishing the Game made another $14,473 during its Bay Area theatrical premiere. Not bad, considering it was playing on just two screens and up against a number of high-profile wide releases this weekend. It had the sixth-highest per-screen box office average, over almost every wide release in the overall grossing top ten. Not bad. What's more important, I think, is the impressive show of support. In San Francisco, there was good buzz and a great turnout on opening night, with folks lining up outside to see Finishing the Game and meet the movie's cast and crew. Let's keep it going as it expands to more cities...

For those of you in the Bay Area who didn't see it this weekend, I've got an opportunity to for free tickets to catch it right now, this week, for you loyal readers and quick responders. I'm giving away five pairs of tickets to see Finishing the Game at the Bridge Theatre in San Francisco or Shattuck Cinemas in Berkeley, good for any showing on Tuesday, October 23rd through Thursday, October 25th. Just be one of the first ten people (5 for SF, 5 for Berkeley) to email me right away with your name, email and phone number by tonight, 11:59pm. Please specify whether you'd like the tickets for the Bridge Theatre or Shattuck Cinemas. And be sure to include "FTG TICKETS" in the subject line. I'll let you know tomorrow if you've won.
