Five Times Free Press Facebook fans have randomly been chosen to win tickets to tomorrow's VIP red-carpet premiere of "Water for Elephants."
The major motion picture was partially shot in the Chattanooga area and stars actors Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon.
To be entered, several hundred fans wrote the name of their favorite film on the newspaper's Facebook page.
The five winners (and their favorite films) are:
• Sonya Stiefel ("Labyrinth")
• Mary Ellis Carpenter ("Gone With the Wind")
• Alicia Breedlove Millis ("Steel Magnolias")
• Katie Arms Blankenship ("Pretty Woman")
• Deana Manning Crocker ("Tombstone")
Local fans overwhelmingly said their favorite film is "Gone With the Wind," followed by modern romantic drama "The Notebook."
Of note, this year's Best Picture winner, "The King's Speech," and the classic film "Citizen Kane" (widely proclaimed as the best film of all time) only received one vote each from local fans.
Here's the full list of top films among locals:
The screening is planned for 7:20 p.m. Friday at the Majestic 12 downtown. The Times Free Press will have live coverage of the premiere online at www.timesfreepress.com starting by 6 p.m.
