The wait is finally over for James Cameron’s Avatar, and we’re holding a private screening tomorrow afternoon to celebrate. The screening is at the AMC Metreon 16 (at 4th and Market) in downtown San Francisco on Friday the 18. Seating starts at 3:15, and you’ll need to be there by 3:45 or we’ll have to give up your seat (once the tickets sell out Eventbrite will open up a Waitlist). The screening starts at 4 PM sharp. Our last batch of tickets have just gone live here at Eventbrite.
In light of the holidays, we’re asking for a $5 donation per ticket, all of which will go toward either the UCSF Foundation or Malaria No More(your choice). We’re very excited to announce that we’ll have Square — the new mobile payment system from Twitter creator Jack Dorsey — at the screening. If you’d like to try it out for yourself, we’ll be accepting further donations toward UCSF Foundation and Malaria No More. These will be totally optional, but you’ll be able to count yourself among the first people try out the exciting new system.
If the tickets sell out by the time you read this, don’t fret too much — you still have a chance to get one. We’re holding a contest in the comment thread below. To win, tell us why you absolutely must get into the screening. Creativity is encouraged. We’ll pick the ten best responses and Email you at 6 PM this evening (make sure to use your real Email address).
Finally, we’re pleased to announce that all attendees will get a medium popcorn and medium soda free of charge, thanks to our four sponsors:
Building43 – A great resource for learning about how to leverage the web’s newest tools.
Mashery – A powerful API management service.
Kontera – Provider of in-text advertising generated based on the content around it.
