This summer, the INDIANA JONES series is coming back to theaters for a special run at Marcus Theatres from August 6-30, 2017. Raiders of the Lost Ark, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull will screen each screen for one-week each on Sunday, Monday, Wednesday - with tickets just five bucks! This is the perfect way to introduce a new generation to the adventures of Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford) prior to the next chapter in the series, currently set for release in 2020 via Disney/Lucasfilm.
Are you ready for the apocalypse? Specifically, X-MEN: APOCALYPSE -- the ninth installment of 20th Century Fox's long-running super hero franchise based on characters appearing in MARVEL Comics. With the film opening this weekend, there's going to be many viewing options depending on your theater preference, and for readers in New York, Chicago or Los Angeles, one such option is one of my personal favorites: 4DX -- a truly immersive cinema experience that involves all of your senses. To celebrate the release, 4DX has teamed-up with THE ROCK FATHER Magazine and 20th Century Fox to get three (3) lucky readers hooked up with a fantastic X-MEN APOCALYPSE 4DX Prize Pack! We're going to do something a little bit different this time around, though... with one (1) reader winning right here through the website, and two (2) readers winning prize packs on my Facebook page. This should make things interesting!
A Special Promotion from 4DX and THE ROCK FATHER Magazine open to residents of Illinois, Wisconsin, New York and the Los Angeles areas only.
If you have't seen a movie in 4DX yet, you're in for quite an experience when you finally do... an experience currently available at just two locations in the United States, and by the end of this week, a third. Located directly between Chicago and Milwaukee, the Marcus Gurnee Cinema at Gurnee Mills welcomes moviegoers into a fully-immersive experience, one also enjoyed on the West Coast at Regal Cinemas L.A. Live, and soon on the East Coast at the Regal Union Square Stadium 14 (open March 25). Showing this week in 4DX is THE DIVERGENT SERIES: ALLEGIANT, and the folks at 4DX have teamed-up with THE ROCK FATHER once again for a special prize pack giveaway... but this one is a little bit different! With just two days left to catch the film in 4DX prior to it being swept away by BATMAN v SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE, we're giving readers a chance to win a pack that includes 1 Allegiant shirt, 1 Allegiant lunchbox, 1 Allegiant tattoo sticker and a pair of 4DX vouchers good for a future 4DX film.

I'm telling you something right now: Disney's ZOOTOPIA is about to be HUGE. Over the past few months, I've been fairly ZOOTOPIA-immersed (they made me an official resident), having once again paid a visit to Walt Disney Animation Studios in Burbank where I met with Directors Byron Howard (BOLT, TANGLED) and Rich Moore (WRECK-IT RALPH), along with Producer Clark Spencer (WINNIE THE POOH) and much of the key creative team for an inside look at the studio's 55th feature-length animated film. Last week, my wife and I also treated The Rock Daughters to an early screening of the film, and in the days that followed, something remarkable happened... they declared it "Better than FROZEN," with our oldest deeming it her "favorite film so-far," and already noting that when she does her back-to-school chalkboard in the Fall, ZOOTOPIA will replace FROZEN as her film of choice. The kids have spoken, and that's all I need. While ZOOTOPIA by itself is a very special film (and one I will review in detail later), in Chicago's far North Suburbs, just minutes from Rock Father HQ is a very special place to see it - the Marcus Gurnee Cinema at Gurnee Mills. This theatre is home to one of just two 4DX theaters in the United States (the other is in L.A.), and to celebrate a one-week special engagement of ZOOTOPIA 4DX, the folks at CJ 4DX have teamed-up with THE ROCK FATHER Magazine for a very special Prize Pack Giveaway. The trick is, this one is limited to readers in Illinois and Wisconsin... folks within the region of the Marcus Gurnee Cinema and their 4DX screen! Learn about 4DX and enter to win below!
