DFW – Come party with us opening day of THE AVENGERS at Texas Theatre – and a free wallpaper for ya!
Hey Dallas/Ft. Worth peeps, did you miss our advance screening last week for Marvel's THE AVENGERS? It was amazing to say the least. The screening tickets for this movie have been the hottest in town, but if you missed out seeing it early, not to worry. The historic Texas Theatre, normally known as a repertory cinema house, is going a little mainstream this weekend with THE AVENGERS, and we're helping them do it up in style. Bigfanboy.com is hosting a special opening night party, and we'll be giving away all sorts of cool stuff - comics donated by local retailers, posters from Marvel movies, t-shirts from various blockbuster films, and more. Everyone is going to walk away with something cool. You don't have to do anything special, just buy a ticket and be there for either the 7:30pm show OR the 10:30pm show on May 4, 2012. Show up in costume and get an extra special prizes (of some sort). We want this to be a fun night for hardcore Marvel Comics fans, so get yourself in a party mood and join us Friday evening for all the fun.

And to get you even more hyped up, here's a hi-res wallpaper for your desktop compliments of Bigfanboy.com!

Painstakingly restored by the fine folks at Aviation Cinemas, the main house features an impressive 650 seats. Perhaps best known in history as the location where Lee Harvey Oswald was arrested, you'll immediately feel the nostalgia upon entering the doors of this stylish building. The Texas Theatre also has a full bar and plenty of lounge seating, which is a great place to have a drink and talk about the film you're about to see... or just saw! For those wondering, THE AVENGERS will not be shown in 3D here, though speaking as someone who has seen it that way, the 3D doesn't really add much... you'll never miss it.

THE AVENGERS hits theaters on May 4, 2012.
