ORIGINAL POST: Fresno Filmworks will present the 2008 British coming-of-age drama “Son of Rambow” at 3 p.m. Nov. 9 at the Tower Theatre. I will be giving away two (2) pair of tickets through a random drawing of anyone who sends a comment about local films to this post. You have until 4 p.m. Nov. 6 to post a comment.
The film from director Garth Jennings tells the story of a young boy named who lives in a strict religious community. After discovering a pirated copy of “Rambo: First Blood,” the boy teams up with his school’s bully to re-create stunts and action sequences from the movie.
The screening leads up to the 12th edition of the Swede Fest that starts at 6:30 p.m. Admission to the festival is free.
If you don’t win one of the pairs of tickets, advance tickets for “Son of Rambow” cost $5 general admission, and they can be purchased by check or cash at the Tower Theatre box office, 815 E. Olive Ave. Go online to FresnoFilmworks.org for tickets and details.
