WIN Tickets to IN THE HOUSE Screening of STAND BY ME!

27 February 2017

This Friday, IN THE HOUSE screens Rob Reiner’s 1986 cinematic adaptation of Stephen King’s novella THE BODY, the quintessential eighties coming of age classic, STAND BY ME.

STAND BY ME (1986)
In a small woodsy Oregon town, a group of friends–sensitive Gordie (Wil Wheaton), tough guy Chris (River Phoenix), flamboyant Teddy (Corey Feldman), and scaredy-cat Vern (Jerry O’Connell)–are in search of a missing teenager’s body. Wanting to be heroes in each other’s and their hometown’s eyes, they set out on an unforgettable two-day trek that turns into an odyssey of self-discovery. They sneak smokes, tell tall tales, cuss ’cause it’s cool and band together when the going gets tough. When they encounter the town’s knife-wielding hoods who are also after the body, the boys discover a strength they never knew they had. STAND BY ME is a rare and special film about friendship and the indelible experiences of growing up.

You can catch STAND BY ME at the following Event Cinemas locations: Adelaide (S.A.), Brisbane City Myer Centre (QLD), Cronulla (NSW), George Street (NSW), Glenelg (S.A.), Innaloo (W.A.), Manuka (ACT) & Newcastle (NSW) and tickets are available right here.
