On Friday, March 9, Disney’s John Carter opens in theatres across Canada and The GATE is thrilled to offer you a chance to see the first in five cities across the country.

In partnership with Studios Canada, we’re giving away fifteen double passes for screenings of John Carter on Wednesday, March 7 at 7:00 PM in , Waterloo, , Vancouver, and Edmonton.

Starring Taylor Kitsch, Lynn Collins, Willem Dafoe, Samantha Morton, Dominic West, and Polly Walker, and opening in Disney Digital 3D, Real D 3D and IMAX 3D, John Carter is based on classic sci-fi series, Barsoom.

Synopsis: From filmmaker Andrew Stanton comes John Carter–a sweeping action-adventure set on the mysterious and exotic planet of Barsoom (Mars). John Carter is based on a classic novel by Edgar Rice Burroughs, whose highly imaginative adventures served as inspiration for many filmmakers, both past and present. The film tells the story of war-weary, former military captain John Carter (Taylor Kitsch), who is inexplicably transported to Mars where he becomes reluctantly embroiled in a conflict of epic proportions amongst the inhabitants of the planet, including Tars Tarkas (Willem Dafoe) and the captivating Princess Dejah Thoris (Lynn Collins). In a world on the brink of collapse, Carter rediscovers his humanity when he realizes that the survival of Barsoom and its people rests in his hands.
