The Way Way Back

How’s everyone dealing with the heat out there? Pretty crazy, am I right? Of course I am. And since we already treated our friends in Toronto and Vancouver to this slowly rolling out offer it’s time to get our friends in OTTAWA, CALGARY, and EDMONTON excited about one of our favourite movies of the summer! Enter for a chance to win one of ten pairs of passes to an advance screening of THE WAY WAY BACK, courtesy of Dork Shelf and Fox Searchlight.

Calgary screening is on Monday, July 22nd.

Ottawa and Edmonton is on Wednesday, July 24th.

THE WAY, WAY BACK is the funny and poignant coming of age story of 14-year-old Duncan’s (Liam James) summer vacation with his mother, Pam (Toni Collette), her overbearing boyfriend, Trent (Steve Carell), and his daughter, Steph (Zoe Levin). Having a rough time fitting in, the introverted Duncan finds an unexpected friend in gregarious Owen (Sam Rockwell), manager of the Water Wizz water park. Through his funny, clandestine friendship with Owen, Duncan slowly opens up to and begins to finally find his place in the world – all during a summer he will never forget.

The Way, Way Back is now playing in Toronto and Vancouver, and opens in Ottawa, Calgary, and Edmonton on Friday, July 26th, but here’s how you can get a chance to see it first in your area! Simply email [email protected] with WAY WAY BACK and YOUR CITY in the subject line. Please only one entry per household. Multiple entries will be deleted. For additional chances to win, simply like the contest announcement on our Facebook page and/or re-Tweet the announcement from our Twitter! Deadline for entries is 11:59pm on Sunday July 21st.
