DC Readers: Attend A Free Early Screening Of ‘Marcel The Shell With Shoes On’

We’re happy to offer our DC readers the chance to attend a free early screening of A24’s Marcel the Shell with Shoes On. The film is based on the beloved short by creators Jenny Slate and Dean Fleischer Camp which you can revisit right here.

SYNOPSIS: Marcel is an adorable one-inch-tall shell who ekes out a colorful existence with his grandmother Connie and their pet lint, Alan. Once part of a sprawling community of shells, they now live alone as the sole survivors of a mysterious tragedy. But when a documentary filmmaker discovers them amongst the clutter of his Airbnb, the short film he posts online brings Marcel millions of passionate fans, as well as unprecedented dangers and a new hope at finding his long-lost family. A beloved character gets his big-screen debut in this hilarious and heartwarming story about finding connection in the smallest corners.

The screening takes place tomorrow, June 22nd at 7:00pm at Landmark E Street Cinema. If you’d like to attend, simply RSVP for the event here. Please remember all screenings are first come first served and you’ll need to arrive early to ensure seating. Enjoy the show!
