Iron Man sneak and a guy in a jet pack!

Ain't It Cool News and Fantastic Fest proudly present a free sneak preview of the almost unbearably anticipated film of the summertime:

IRON MAN
April 28, 7:00 PM
Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar
1120 South Lamar Blvd
Austin, TX

To make it even more special, however, we will be having a live appearance by Iron Man himself (or at least the closest real-life equivalent we could find) : Mr. Jet Pack International. Before the screening, we'll be treated to a display of technology that was only in the dreams of sci-fi filmmakers until now. Mr. Jet Pack International will take off from the Alamo South Lamar parking lot, fly above the crowd and return to earth to shake hands, hold babies and sign cleavage.

Admission to this screening is free, HOWEVER, since every self-respecting geek clearly wants to go, we're going to make you work for it a little bit. To secure a ticket, you need to send us a photo (RGB, .jpg, less than 400KB) of you either dressed as Iron Man or Tony Stark (dressing as Iron Man will clearly get you a better shot). We'll select the 100 best photos and those folks will receive a pair of tickets to the show. Before the jet pack demonstration, we'll have an Iron Man costume contest with assorted prizes and merchandise for the winners. Photos are due by Thursday, April 24rd at 5:00 PM CST. We'll announce the winners on April 25 at 5:00 PM CST. Photos can be sent to ironman@originalalamo.com. If you are one of the lucky winners to get tickets, wear your costume to the event on the 28th and we'll have great Iron Man prizes for you!
