The King’s Speech is currently showing in theaters across the country. Based on the eponymous novel by British author Winston Graham, the film chronicles the life of the late King George VI, who served as monarch of Great Britain from 1936 to 1952. With an all-star cast including Colin Firth, Guy Pearce, and Ben Whishaw, the movie is guaranteed to keep you rapt at the screen for the entire two and a half hours.
If you get the chance to see this year’s Oscar-nominated film The King’s Speech, you should take it. It’s a tearjerker of an American historical drama that will bring back memories of a less turbulent era — one that many of us probably never knew. But for those who did, this movie brings back some very vivid and happy recollections.
Here’s how to watch The King’s Speech. Read on, and you’ll have the information you need to know about what you’re seeing and when you’re seeing it. Keep in mind: This is just a guide. Some of the information below may be outdated, so try to confirm the information with a reliable source before you make any plans.
Showtimes And Tickets
Although the film is set to premiere in the United States on February 29, 2012, showtimes and tickets are still available through Fathom Events. The film will be shown in more than 500 theaters across the country on that date. You can find showtimes and tickets through Fathom’s website. It’s also worth noting that Fathom Events holds a special deal where you can see the film in a luxury theater for just $10. You can use the promo code FATHOMEVENTS to take advantage of this offer.
The day of the Premier, there will undoubtedly be some sort of pre-show publicity activity – including some very cute photo opps with the cast and crew. There will also likely be some sort of special musical number or entertainment before the movie starts. These activities should not be distracting, so you can focus on enjoying the movie. After all, what’s the point of paying good money to see a movie if you’re not completely engrossed in what’s on the screen?
If you go to the theater early, you should be able to find a good spot in the house. If you show up late, you might have to wait outside. There’s no way to know exactly what time the theater will open, so you might need to show up early or wait outside. There will also be people with mobile phones outside the theaters, hoping to get lucky and get a text when the film begins. This probably won’t happen. Theaters usually hold a good number of people, so it’s highly unlikely that anyone besides the person you’re with will have their phone out and ready to go when the movie begins. Therefore, it’s best to avoid these people. It’s never a good idea to distract yourself from the movie by texting or talking on the phone. While it’s tempting to do so, you’ll ruin the flow of the movie if you do.
In addition to the movie being good, it’s also worth considering that it’s a prestige item. As mentioned above, this is a film about the life of King George VI. If you’re a fan of the British monarchy, then this is likely worth seeing. And if you’re not, then it might be worth seeing simply because it’s a good movie. It certainly makes for an interesting contrast to Stephen King’s IT, where the creepy kids are the stars. While some might consider the comparison between the two films rather bold, it’s an apt comparison. Both films are dominated by adult men who are scared of children. Though both films are set in Maine, the characters in IT are much more immature than those in King’s Speech. Similarly, while Pennywise terrorizes the children of It’s dark world, King George VI is a symbol of courage and strength to the British people. This is also a key distinction between the two films. While King’s Speech was a huge success when it was first released in Britain in 2011, IT was not. Perhaps because the public learned to associate IT with Stephen King and his brand of horror, while people in Great Britain already knew and admired King George VI. It will be interesting to see how these films compare in terms of box office performance once they’re released in the United States.
