Be the first to see 'The Hunger Games'

With less than 24 days until the much-anticipated release of "The Hunger Games," Lionsgate has announced 24 advance screenings of the movie to mirror the story's 24 "tributes" that fight to the death. And Charlotte is one of the lucky few.

Ours is the only city between Washington, D.C., and Atlanta to have been granted an early look at the film.

In a press release, Lionsgate said: "Fans can show their support for #HungerGames24 by visiting and tweeting a unique hashtag assigned to their closest city to unlock Advance Screening locations." (Charlotte fans: Use the hashtag #hungergames24CHA.)

Starting today, "the top four cities with the most Twitter volume will be announced each day and fans will then be able to enter to win tickets to those locations."

In addition, on March 10, the first customers to purchase a NOOK device at select Barnes & Noble stores will receive two complimentary tickets to the official advance screening on Wednesday, March 21. Locally, the only participating location is at 8725 Townley Road in the Birkdale area of Huntersville.

May the odds be ever in your favor.

Is buying a Nook the ONLY way to get into this screening? The cheapest Nooks are $100 and even a massive fan like me isn't willing to shell out that much money when I already have an iPhone with a Kindle app.
