We’re happy to offer our DC readers the chance to attend a free early screening of National Champions, starring Stephan James, JK Simmons, Alexander Ludwig, and Lil Rel Howery.
SYNOPSIS: Three days before the college football national championship game, star quarterback LeMarcus James (Stephan James) and teammate Emmett Sunday (Alexander Ludwig) ignite a player’s strike declaring they won’t compete until all student-athletes are fairly compensated. With billions of dollars at risk and legacies on the line, the stakes could not be higher. Now, with only hours until kickoff, the head coach (J.K. Simmons) and various power brokers (Lil Rel Howery, Tim Blake Nelson, Andrew Bachelor, Jeffrey Donovan, David Koechner, Kristin Chenoweth, Timothy Olyphant, Uzo Aduba) must race against the clock to protect or destroy the prevailing collegiate athletics system.
The screening takes place on Wednesday, December 8th at 7:30pm at Landmark Bethesda Row. If you’d like to attend, simply go to the STX ticketing site here. Please remember all screenings are first come first served and you’ll need to arrive early to ensure seating. Enjoy the show!
National Champions opens on December 10th.
