September is #ArrestedReading month here at Bookmans and we are doing our part to fight censorship of books, music, movies and beyond. Being media rebels is one of our favorite pastimes, so it makes sense that we would want to share the thrill of partaking in banned material with the community. True to form, we came across a pair of Harkins movie tickets for Rebel in the Rye and we can’t wait to give them away. This is the untold true story of J.D. Salinger’s life while writing The Catcher in the Rye, one of our favorite books to be banned or challenged. Plus, the screening is taking place at Harkins Theaters. Harkins is one of the coolest local businesses in Arizona, holding down the film screening game since 1933. On this Freebie Friday, we give away two passes to see IFC Films’ Rebel in the Rye at 7pm on Wednesday, September 13 at Harkins Shea 14.
More about Rebel in the Rye via IFC:
The world of J.D. Salinger is brought vividly to life in this portrait of one of the most renowned, controversial, and enigmatic authors of our time. In mid-20th century New York, a young Salinger (Nicholas Hoult) struggles to find his voice, pursues a love affair with a famed socialite (Zoey Deutch) and leaves for the frontlines of World War II. Publishing his masterpiece, The Catcher in the Rye, brings him overnight fame and notoriety, leading him to withdraw from the public eye for the rest of his life. Co-starring Kevin Spacey and Sarah Paulson.
