Gleeks See Glee 3D Movie A Day Earlier Than Everyone Else and Get some Swag!

Glee Movie!

I know many of you probably expect me to hate on the idea of a Glee 3D Concert movie but I am a Gleek. There I said it. I had tickets for the show at Verizon Center in DC (not comped, out of my own pocket!) and couldn’t go because of my recent move to Jersey/NYC. So I was strangely excited to see the announcement of the Glee 3D movie. Special advance showings of GLEE: THE 3D CONCERT MOVIE will unspool on August 10, 2011. Tickets are on sale now. NOW! GO GET THEM!

Twentieth Century Fox announced today that special advance showings of GLEE: THE 3D CONCERT MOVIE will unspool on August 10, 2011, giving fans of the global phenomenon, known as “Gleeks,” an early opportunity to celebrate, share and experience GLEE like never before…and in 3D…two days prior to the film’s global launch. Ticket holders for these special screenings will get a merchandise packet created especially for the event, including a GLEE logo lapel pin, commemorative ticket and lanyard, silicone bracelet, hat, commemorative GLEE RealD 3D glasses, and backpack.

The screenings will take place in 291 theaters across the U.S. and Canada. Tickets for the event go on sale July 13, for Gleeks on the official movie Facebook page ( Public sales begin the next day at Ticket sales end August 2, to allow for mailing of the special ticket and bag.

GLEE: THE 3D CONCERT MOVIE will enable fans who were unable to obtain tickets to the recent, sold-out “Glee Live!” tour engagements or who live in markets not included in the tour, or who just want to see it again, to experience the concert in the immersive magic of a 3D theatrical event. The tour played 40 shows across the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom, selling more than 500,000 tickets.

GLEE: THE 3D CONCERT MOVIE is a new way to see all your favorite characters — including Rachel (played by Lea Michele), Finn (Cory Monteith), Mercedes (Amber Riley), Kurt (Chris Colfer), Artie (Kevin McHale), and Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch) – as never before, with their spectacular musical performances, captured in 3D, interwoven with intimate behind-the-scenes revelations that are a story unto themselves.

“Glee” co-creator and executive producer Ryan Murphy produces GLEE: THE 3D CONCERT MOVIE, and the director is Kevin Tancharoen.
