The fourth season of GAME OF THRONES is only a few months away. Tyrion, Jon, Arya, Sansa, the Hound, Joffrey, Cersei, Jaime, Brienne, Bronn, Sam, Daenerys, and all the rest of the characters you love or hate will be returning to your TV screens... oh, along about late March or early April, I'd say. So what time could be better to refresh yourselves on the first three seasons of the show?
So, by special arrangement with HBO, the Jean Cocteau Cinema in Santa Fe will be presenting a GAME OF THRONES retrospective. New Mexicans -- and lucky tourists passing through at the right time -- will have a chance to see the show the way only VIPs and cast members and critics have ever seen it before, at private screenings and premieres -- on the big screen at a movie theatre.
Starting on Monday, January 6, and continuing through late March, the Cocteau will be presenting weekly screenings of GAME OF THRONES, in order. Some weeks we'll show two episodes, some weeks three. I expect to be on hand personally for many of the screenings (though, PLEASE NOTE, probably not all), to introduce the episodes beforehand, answer questions afterward, and sign a few books as well. And it may be we will have some other special guests as well, either in person or via Skype. Can't promise anything as of yet, but we're working on it.
Our official screening schedule looks like this:
Monday, January 6 season one, episodes 1-3,
Monday, January 13 season one, episodes 4-5,
Monday, January 20 season one, episodes 6-8,
Monday, January 27 season one, episodes 9-10,
Monday, February 3 season two, episodes 1-3,
Wednesday, February 12 season two, episodes 4-5,
Wednesday, February 19 season two, episodes 6-8,
Friday, February 28 season two, episodes 9-10,
Monday, March 3 season three, episodes 1-3,
Monday, March 10 season three, episodes 4-5,
Monday, March 17 season three, episodes 6-8,
Monday, March 24 season three, episodes 9-10
And I have saved the best part for last.
Admission to all GAME OF THRONES screenings will be ABSOLUTELY FREE.
No tickets, no passes, no payment required. First come, first served. Come to the Cocteau and come on in... so long as we have seats. But we only have 125 of those, so best come early if you want to be sure of a place.
We'll have door prizes as well. Not to mention the best popcorn in town.
See you at the cinema, for GAME OF THRONES as you've never seen it before.
