'Where the Wild Things Are' comes to Hollywood with Spike Jonze, Dave Eggers and others
Want to be one of the first to see "Where the Wild Things Are"? You can -- and hear Spike Jonze, Dave Eggers, Catherine Keener and the young actor Max Records (yes, he plays Max) answer questions afterward -- if you go to the special Oct. 1 preview screening at the Arclight. Tickets have just gone on sale this afternoon.
The screening is to benefit the 826LA literary centers, founded by Eggers, who co-wrote the "Where the Wild Things Are" script with director Jonze.
Here in Hollywood, you'll get to see the movie and listen to the post-film Q&A for $75. A $200 VIP ticket will secure premium seating and a pass to the VIP after-party at Space Fifteen Twenty, which is a short distance up Cahuenga from the Arclight -- walking distance, even by Hollywood standards.
The after-party is hosted by a bevy of co-sponsors and will have drinks and things, from what we hear, and generally fabulous literary and film people wandering around.
If tickets here sell out, there will be separate screenings in all cities that are home to 826s: San Francisco, New York, Seattle, Chicago, Boston, New York and Ann Arbor, Mich.
