San Diegans: See Hamlet 2! For Free! On Us! (AMC La Jolla)

As a token of our undying love* and appreciation, we scholarly gentlemen at Owl&Bear are offering free passes to an advanced screening of Focus Features’ Hamlet 2 at the AMC La Jolla at 7:00 PM on Thursday, August 21st.

Hamlet 2 stars the ineffable Steve Coogan alongside Catherine Keener, Amy Poehler, David Arquette, and Elisabeth Shue. The film is co-written by Pam Brady—best known for her work on South Park and Team America: World Police—and is guaranteed to make you die laughing.**

Those leading sheltered, mirthless lives and who have therefore not seen Coffee And Cigarettes, 24 Hour Party People, Hot Fuzz, or Tristram Shandy: A Cock And Bull Story, should at least remember Coogan as the guy whose pot was once called black by Courtney Love. Word on the street, though, is that Coogan’s pot is more of a darkish green.
