Peter Pan...old school style {GIVEAWAY}

{GIVEAWAY CLOSED}  Congrats to Ashley for winning this family four pack of tickets!  Email me at Katie(at) to claim your prize!  I need to hear from you within 24 hours.  Thanks for entering! 

I have loved old black & white movies since I was very young.  My dad made sure we watched all of the classics.  We spent our weekends with Bette Davis & Fred Astaire.  And we even went to the Emery Theatre downtown on several occasions to catch classic old films on the big screen.  They even had 3D movie nights!  And they didn't charge a million dollars per ticket to see it in 3D.  I loved old movies!  So you can imagine my excitement when I was contacted by my friend about sponsoring a giveaway of tickets to see Peter Pan at the Carnegie Arts Center in Covington
This probably isn't the same "Peter Pan" you are envisioning right now.  It's a very special showing of the 1924 Silent version of "Peter Pan".  How cool would it be to take your children to this movie and give them a glimpse of a classic film, the likes of which they have probably never seen before. 

Here's a bit more about the show from the Carnegie's description:
"Captain Hook, the Lost Boys, Peter Pan and Wendy first leapt from the storybook to the screen in 1924, with the actors portraying them chosen by creator J.M. Barrie himself. Misplaced for more than 70 years, that cinematic treasure and an accompanying contemporary harp score receive their first screening and performance in the Greater Cincinnati area next month.

Seattle area harpist Leslie McMichael unfurls her original film score with a screening of the 1924 silent film "Peter Pan" at the Otto M. Budig Theatre at The Carnegie Visual and Performing Arts Center (The Carnegie) on Thursday, May 17 at 7:30pm. Magnificently restored after having been lost for generations, "Peter Pan" is a cinematic gem and a spellbinding musical adventure for all boys and girls and those who never grew up."

Would you like to go?  Here's how you can win a Family Four Pack of tickets (2 adults & 2 children) to see this show on Thursday, May 17th at 7:30pm:
