I just clicked on it a few minutes ago and there are still seats remaining for the free, advance screening of The Help, scheduled for tomorrow (Thursday, July 21), 7 p.m. at Regal Ballantyne (14815 John J Delaney Drive). The screening is being presented in partnership with the National Association of Black Female Executives in Music and Entertainment (NABFEME), and you can see it nearly three weeks before the DreamWorks movie officially opens in theaters. Also, before the 7 p.m. screening is held, there will be a dessert reception 5-6:30 p.m.

Coincidentally, I talked to a friend tonight who's reading the book that the movie is based on. Here's the synopsis of the movie according to its website:
Based on one of the most talked about books in years and a #1 New York Times best-selling phenomenon, The Help stars Emma Stone (Easy A) as Skeeter, Academy Award–nominated Viola Davis (Doubt) as Aibileen, and Octavia Spencer as Minny—three very different, extraordinary women in Mississippi during the 1960s, who build an unlikely friendship around a secret writing project that breaks societal rules and puts them all at risk. From their improbable alliance a remarkable sisterhood emerges, instilling all of them with the courage to transcend the lines that define them, and the realization that sometimes those lines are made to be crossed—even if it means bringing everyone in town face-to-face with the changing times.
Click here to register for the Thursday screening (it appears that the online registration will end at noon). The movie officially opens in theaters August 10.
