Let's talk AMERICAN MAN. If you follow NFL football, you must see this incredible film screening today at the Sarasota Opera House. It is a Big Deal for sports fans. The film is directed by Jon Frankel from HBO Real Sports who will be here for the premiere. NY Giants Hall Of Fame legend Harry Carson will attend the screening. Kevin Turner, former NFL superstar (The Philadelphia Eages and the New England Patriots) and subject of the film, will also be on hand. There may even be additional surprise guests!

Now, screening before American Man at the Opera House, beginning at 5:30 PM, we have something very special for you. We have a special advance screening of one of the summer's biggest comedies as seen in Entertainment Weekly's SUMMER MOVIE PREVIEW edition. On June 15th it opens everywhere, but today YOU can see it here! The movie is YOUR SISTER'S SISTER starring the always amazing Emily Blunt from the Devil Wears Prada. And here's a cool INSIDER tidbit for you. Emily fixed up HER sister with Stanley Tucci, SFF alum and co-star of Devil Wears Prada and now they're engaged. Very cool! This film is a must see experience. So come on down at 5:30 PM for it! CLICK HERE TO BUY TICKETS NOW!
