Alright, Fast and Furious fans. Universal wants to turbo charge moviegoing to celebrate the premiere of F9. So, they’re screening the previous 8 films in the franchise for FREE.
The special event series, dubbed “Fast Fridays,” will premiere a different Fast and Furious film each Friday in select theaters beginning April 30. Films will be screened for free in chronological order starting with the original The Fast and the Furious on April 30.
The screening series launches nationwide in more than 500 theaters, with plans to expand to more than 900 theaters as the series progresses. Participating theater chains include: AMC Theatres, Regal, Cinemark Theatres, Marcus Theatres, Harkins Theatres, Showcase Cinemas, Santikos Entertainment, B&B Theatres, Cinépolis USA, Georgia Theatre Company, Marquee Cinemas, Epic Theatres, EVO Cinemas, Megaplex Theatres, Maya Cinemas, Xscape Theatres, Silverspot Cinema, Golden Star Theaters, MovieScoop Cinemas and Premiere Cinemas.
“The Fast films are all about family, and Universal wanted to find a way to thank our huge family of Fast fans around the country for their passion and loyalty over the past 20 years. We’re grateful to our theater partners for their help in making this screening series possible and we are delighted to welcome audiences back to theaters to experience the wild Fast ride all over again. And we cannot wait to blow everyone’s minds with the release of F9 on June 25.”Jim Orr, Universal’s President of Domestic Theatrical Distribution
Screening tickets will be distributed by each individual theater. They only go live the Friday before each weekly screening, so if you want to watch the whole series, you’ll need to check back each week to grab the next ticket. You can find a participating theater near you at FastFridayScreenings.com.
