Washington DC movie fans have a chance to attend a free advance screening of Pompeii, starring Kit Harington, Emily Browning, and Kiefer Sutherland. Set in 79 A.D., Pompeii tells the epic story of Milo (Kit Harington), a slave turned invincible gladiator who finds himself in a race against time to save his true love Cassia (Emily Browning), the beautiful daughter of a wealthy merchant who has been unwillingly betrothed to a corrupt Roman Senator. As Mount Vesuvius erupts in a torrent of blazing lava, Milo must fight his way out of the arena in order to save his beloved as the once magnificent Pompeii crumbles around him.
The screening takes place on Wednesday, February 19th at 7:00pm at Regal Gallery Place.
