Going to see an anticipated movie the night it is released in theaters is a thrill, but what about getting to see a movie a week before its release for free? The University of New Mexico Student Activities Center hosts a free advanced screening of the movie “Game Night,” starring Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams, on Thursday, Feb. 15 at 7 p.m. in the SUB theater.
To attend this event students must obtain a pass in Student Activities SUB room 1018 or the webpage (online passes do no guarantee admission). In case of extra seating a wait line will be made available for everyone.
In the film, Bateman and McAdams star as Max and Annie, whose weekly couples game night gets kicked up a notch when Max’s charismatic brother, Brooks (Chandler), arranges a murder mystery party, complete with fake thugs and faux federal agents. So when Brooks gets kidnapped, it’s all part of the game…right?
But as the six uber-competitive gamers set out to solve the case and win, they begin to discover that neither this “game” — nor Brooks — are what they seem to be. Over the course of one chaotic night, the friends find themselves increasingly in over their heads as each twist leads to another unexpected turn. With no rules, no points and no idea who all the players are, this could turn out to be the most fun they’ve ever had…or game over.
