Score passes to see Spielberg's 'Lincoln'!

The Charlotte Observer is giving away 40 “Admit Two” passes to a special advance screening Wednesday of the new film “Lincoln.” Steven Spielberg directs Academy Award winner Daniel Day-Lewis in the drama, which focuses on the 16th president’s tumultuous final months in office.

In a nation divided by war and the winds of change, Lincoln pursues a course of action designed to end the war, unite the country and abolish slavery. Here's the trailer:

The special advance screening will be held at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 7, with the location of the theater to be revealed when you pick up your passes. “Lincoln” will be released in Charlotte on Friday, Nov. 9.

How to get your free pass: Come to the security console in the main lobby of the Charlotte Observer building, 600 S. Tryon St., beginning at noon TODAY (Monday, Nov. 5). You may take just one “Admit Two” pass, while supplies last.

The film is rated PG-13. On the night of the screening, it is recommended to arrive early since seating is not guaranteed and on a first-come, first-served basis.
