As an intern myself, I appreciate Fox’s sentiment in making today “National Intern Appreciation Day.” Of course, this is not so much a celebration of our kind, but rather an excuse for the studio to give away advance screening passes to its upcoming film, The Internship, opening this weekend (review to come sometime this week). But I doubt anyone is complaining.
All showings are tonight at 7:30 p.m. tonight. The film screenings is first come, first serve, and not solely for interns. All will be welcomed. The film will be screening tonight in the following cities: Atlanta, Albuquerque, Baltimore, Boston, Charlotte, Chicago, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Fresno, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Philadelphia, Phoenix, San Diego, San Fransisco, Seattle, Tampa, and Washington. Press release is included below.
THE INTERNSHIP CELEBRATES
NATIONAL INTERN APPRECIATION DAY
WORKPLACES’ UNSUNG HEROES RECOGNIZED WITH FREE TIX
TO SPECIAL SCREENINGS, IN SELECTED MARKETS,
ON MONDAY, JUNE 3RD
LOS ANGELES, California – (May 30, 2013)…Twentieth Century Fox’s summer movie comedy event THE INTERNSHIP is celebrating National Intern Appreciation Day on Monday, June 3rd, honoring the unsung and underappreciated heroes of our nation’s workplaces: interns.
The studio and the filmmakers are showing their appreciation by setting special Intern Appreciation Day screenings of THE INTERNSHIP, in selected markets, on Monday, June 3rd. All interns who attend these special screenings will be admitted at no charge. (Check https://www.facebook.com/TheInternshipMovie for details.)
The celebration will pay tribute to interns everywhere, who reinvent themselves each day, including devising strategies that can turn a company around!
And who better to recognize the tireless workers seeking knowledge and experience about their field of interest– but who in reality are making their supervisors look good – than the film that brings the comic adventures of two very special interns to life on the big screen.
THE INTERNSHIP presents Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson as two salesmen whose careers have been torpedoed by the digital world. Trying to prove they are not obsolete, they defy the odds by talking their way into a coveted internship at Google, proving that necessity really is the mother of re-invention.
THE INTERNSHIP enrolls in theaters everywhere June 7th.
