While theater chains have midnight screenings on Thursdays and sometimes a little earlier, very rarely do you hear of a big studio movie, especially one of potential animated summer juggernaut “Inside Out” playing in several theaters a few days before the official theatrical release date.
Turns out that Disney is giving this special theater events (RiffTrax, Opera at The Met) a try.
On Tues. Jun. 16th (three days before actual release), Disney Pixar’s Inside Out will have one special screening in participating theaters around the U.S. that will include the usual short film as well as a satellite broadcasted Q&A with the director Pete Docter and Amy Poehler as her character Joy.
Our guess is that it will probably sell out in advance and probably encourage more pre-release events in the future.
