In partnership with Mammoth Lakes Tourism, 20th Century Fox is bringing an advance screening of the movie, Eddie The Eagle to Mammoth Lakes on Thursday, February 18, 2016.

Inspired by true events, Eddie the Eagle is a feel-good story about Michael “Eddie” Edwards (Taron Egerton), an unlikely but courageous British ski-jumper who never stopped believing in himself – even as an entire nation was counting him out. With the help of a rebellious and charismatic coach (played by Hugh Jackman), Eddie takes on the establishment and wins the hearts of sports fans around the world by making an improbable and historic showing at the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympics. From producers of Kingsman: The Secret Service, Eddie the Eagle stars Taron Egerton as Eddie, the loveable underdog with a never say die attitude.

The U.S. release of the film is scheduled for February 26.

The movie will be playing in both theaters at Minaret Cinemas at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, February 18. This event is free to the public. Arrive early! Seating is first-come, first-served. This does not guarantee you a seat! Theater is overbooked to ensure a full house. Theater is not responsible for overbooking. No admittance once screening has begun.
