“Hateful Eight” Roadshow Tickets Now on Sale!

Love him or hate him, Quentin Tarantino is hellbent on keeping the film format alive. Along with shooting The Hateful Eight almost exclusively in the 65MM format, Tarantino plans to showcase the film in said format for a limited time. The 70MM version of the film will be shown in only 100 theaters starting Christmas Day. For some time, we even thought that we might never get to see the film.

The film’s roadshow format is intended to harken back to the days when a film’s release was more of an event than by today’s standards. People would dress up, they would receive a souvenir program at the beginning of the event, there would be a traditional intermission, and generally the actual cut of the film would be a longer version than the traditional theatrical release. Although this type of exhibition died in the 70’s, this type of extravaganza is something that seems like a perfect fit for The Hateful Eight Writer/Director.

Here’s the announcement video, as well as the cities that will be showing the film in it’s full intended glory:

New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, Dallas, San Francisco, Boston, Atlanta, Washington DC, Houston, Detroit, Phoenix, Seattle, Tampa, Minneapolis, Denver, Miami, Cleveland, Orlando, Sacramento, St. Louis, Portland, Pittsburgh, Milwaukee, Charlotte, Raleigh-Durham, Baltimore, San Diego, Nashville, Kansas City, San Antonio, West Palm Beach, Birmingham, Las Vegas, Albuquerque, Oklahoma City, Austin, New Orleans, Providence, Knoxville, Santa Barbara, Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver

You can purchase tickets for the Roadshow version of The Hateful Eight Here.In case you haven’t herd, here’s the synopsis for The Hateful Eight:

In THE HATEFUL EIGHT, set six or eight or twelve years after the Civil War, a stagecoach hurtles through the wintry Wyoming landscape. The passengers, bounty hunter John Ruth (Kurt Russell) and his fugitive Daisy Domergue (Jennifer Jason Leigh), race towards the town of Red Rock where Ruth, known in these parts as “The Hangman,” will bring Domergue to justice. Along the road, they encounter two strangers: Major Marquis Warren (Samuel L. Jackson), a black former union soldier turned infamous bounty hunter, and Chris Mannix (Walton Goggins), a southern renegade who claims to be the town’s new Sheriff. Losing their lead on the blizzard, Ruth, Domergue, Warren and Mannix seek refuge at Minnie’s Haberdashery, a stagecoach stopover on a mountain pass. When they arrive at Minnie’s, they are greeted not by the proprietor but by four unfamiliar faces. Bob (Demian Bichir), who’s taking care of Minnie’s while she’s visiting her mother, is holed up with Oswaldo Mobray (Tim Roth), the hangman of Red Rock, cow-puncher Joe Gage (Michael Madsen), and Confederate General Sanford Smithers (Bruce Dern). As the storm overtakes the mountainside stopover, our eight travelers come to learn they may not make it to Red Rock after all…
