I believe the best gifts are experiences.

When I was in Australia with Oprah (oh, I love throwing around that phrase!), I told her I would rather have won that trip than all her favorite things any day. I’ve taken my daughter to a Lilith Fair concert and my father to a baseball game to celebrate their big days, and my best present ever was my 50th birthday weekend in Paris with and from my husband.

So, for those of you with super husbands and dads, here’s a great, easy and affordable special event. The new, highly-anticipated Superman movie, Man of Steel, comes out on June 14th and Walmart is offering tickets to exclusive pre-screenings all around the country on June 13th. This is a groundbreaking offer that’s the first of its kind — and you can be part of it!

      

As a movie reviewer, let me tell you the benefits of attending a pre-screening, especially for Man of Steel, which is likely to become one of the biggest summer blockbusters:

* No one has ruined the movie for you by telling you the ending or any of the twists.

* You haven’t read a million reviews, so you go in without any preconceptions, which is a much more enjoyable way to watch a movie.

* You avoid the opening weekend crowds.

* You get to gloat a little.

* If you bring the whole family, you become a superhero in your kids’ eyes when they get to gloat a little.

* For this specific event, you also get an exclusive digital comic book written by David S. Goyer, author of Man of Steel, as well as an exclusive opportunity to pre-order an HD digital download or Blu-Ray copy of the film.

* Because the pre-screening is being held on Thursday night, by the time Father’s Day actually rolls around on Sunday, you can just relax while your super man happily shows off his super grilling skills and gives you a night off from planning dinner. Win win!

Purchase tickets to the exclusive pre-screening of Man of Steel (PG-13) on June 13, 2013 at 7 p.m. at your local Walmart! Tickets can be purchased in the Electronics Department and include an exclusive digital comic book written by David S. Goyer, author of Man of Steel, as well as an exclusive opportunity to pre-order an HD digital download or Blu-ray copy of the film.

* Go to your local Walmart

* Visit the electronics department

* Purchase your EXCLUSIVE Man of Steel pre-screening tickets (available in 2D or 3D)

* Take your family to the theater location noted on your ticket and watch the EXCLUSIVE 7 p.m. premiere of Man of Steel on June 13!

  1. Lois, this sounds wonderful, and luckily I have a Wal-Mart near me. Kryptonite couldn’t keep me a way from this movie and a pre-screening sounds fabulous! We are four generations of superman fans!

  2. Lisa Froman says:

    I like Superman and I just might take this advice and head to the movies. Thanks for the great suggestion!

  3. Helene Cohen Bludman says:

    What a perfect idea for a pre-Father’s Day treat that the whole family will enjoy!

  4. Such a great idea for a gift for Father’s Day! Love it. Our guys are men of steel, anyway – aren’t they? Love this idea.

  5. I’ve never been to a screening before, but it sounds like a great idea. Thanks for the suggestion–I love going to the movies and need to make it a more frequent thing.
