Los Angeles, CA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 04/27/2015 --Movie Favorites, a blog that highlights local film events for film buffs and movie critics, will feature Scott Tucker's Summer Kickoff. The event will take place on the first day of summer, and screen two yet to be decided cult classics on the big screen.
"We're so happy that Scott Tucker has finally reopened the Marquee Theater, which was built nearly 100 years ago," says Movie Favorites' writer John Nailer. "Letting local film fans pick two of the first movies to grace the remodeled theater's screens is just icing on the cake." Starting May 1, fans will be able to log onto Movie Favorites in order vote for their top two film choices out of the following cult classics: The Big Lebowski, Repo Man, The Warriors, Aliens, and Annie Hall. The two films with the most votes will be screened back to back on the first day of summer operations for the newly remodeled theater.
"The community it what keeps us running this little theater, they're the reason we revamped it and why we are committed to providing entertainment at value prices," says Meagan Ruyle, Scott Tucker's theater manager. "Everything we offer is for our community members, from our local snacks to our mommy-and-me movies."
The theater will sell $10 special tickets for the Summer Kickoff that include snacks and the two cult classics. Movie Favorites will host voting to decide on which films to feature, and will cover the event live.
