MOVIE fans were at Menara Star in Phileo Damansara II, Petaling Jaya, as early as 8am on Friday to redeem free passes to the special screening of Underworld 2: Evolution.
The screening is being held in conjunction with the Star Online's 10 Hundred Tickets Redemption promotion. The promotion is organised with the co-operation of Golden Screen Cinemas (GSC) Sdn Bhd, Buena Vista International Sdn Bhd and Sony Pictures Entertainment. The movie would be shown at GSC 1 Utama (New Wing) in Petaling Jaya and GSC Gurney Plaza in Penang on March 11.
First in the queue at Menara Star was 23-year-old Universiti Malaya student Geron Tan. ''I enjoy watching movies as I can relax my mind after attending classes on weekdays,'' he said, adding that this was his eighth time redeeming free passes.
Administrative manager Rosli Abdullah, 42, who arrived a little after 9.30am said: ''When I got here, there were already 20 people queuing and after 30 minutes, the number of people doubled.'' He added that he would watch the movie with his fiancee.
Software engineer Meena Loshni, 23, said she would watch the action film with her brother or cousin, adding that the first time she had redeemed free passes was for the movie Memoirs of Geisha.
The ticket redemption is exclusively for MyStar members who are above 18 years old. Members need to print out the ticket redemption voucher and redeem it at the participating venues.
Each voucher is entitled to two movie tickets and tickets are given on a first-come-first-served basis.
