It’s the U.S. DEBUT of ‘Jack Reacher’ In This VERY Special Screening for the people of Pittsburgh, PA!
Tom and director Chris McQuarrie returned to SouthSide Works Cinema in Pittsburgh, PA on Dec. 19th at 7pm ET to host and introduce a very special U.S. screening of ‘Jack Reacher’ for the people of Pittsburgh! Why Pittsburgh? Because MUCH of ‘Jack Reacher’ was filmed there, so the special screening was Tom’s and Paramount Studio’s way of saying… THANK YOU to the AWESOME people of Pittsburgh, PA for supporting the filming of ‘Jack Reacher’ on the streets of PITTSBURGH!
Tom and Chris, (Who you can follow on Twitter at @ChrisMcQuarrie) attended expressly to introduce the film to 10 audiences in 10 theaters and thank them and the city of Pittsburgh for their support during the filming of ‘Jack Reacher!’
Now unfortunately, TeamTC wasn’t able to attend the screening so we instead looked to YOU, the people of Pittsburgh for YOUR tweets and posts about the event as it happened!..Not only did the people of Pittsburgh enable the filming of ‘Jack Reacher,’ they also covered the special U.S. screening of ‘Jack Reacher!’ for us! You guys ROCK!
FIRST, as part of the pre-event excitement, we caught ‘Jack Reacher’ director Christopher McQuarrie interviewed literally, as he was driving to the screening!
McQuarrie gave a surprisingly detailed 26 minute phone interview to Jeffrey Wells of Hollywood Elsewhere while driving down the freeway on his way to the SouthSide Works ‘Jack Reacher’ screening!
We sure hope Chris wasn’t driving like this…
And with the Chris McQuarrie interview as the pre-event teaser, let the Pittsburgh, PA screening night of ‘Jack Reacher’ begin as told by THE TWEETS, POSTS AND MEDIA COVERAGE OF THE PEOPLE OF PITTSBURGH WHO WERE THERE!
So that you can get a sense of the locale, here’s the Google Street View of SouthSide Works Cinema…
