Film Preview: ‘The Garfield Movie’

Readers of South Florida on the Cheap have a chance to attend a free advance screening of “The Garfield Movie,” which opens in theaters May 24, 2024.

“The Garfield Movie” is an animated film based on the popular comic-strip character Garfield. The original “grumpy” cat is voiced by Christopher Pratt. His father is voiced by Samuel L. Jackson.

The film is rated PG. 

Here is a synopsis of the movie:

Garfield, the world-famous, Monday-hating, lasagna-loving indoor cat, is about to have a wild outdoor adventure! After an unexpected reunion with his long-lost father – scruffy street cat Vic – Garfield and his canine friend Odie are forced from their perfectly pampered life into joining Vic in a hilarious, high-stakes heist.

Free advance screening is:

  • Sunday, May 19, at Sunset Place, at 2 p.m.

Here's the trailer, if you'd like to know more about the film.

Here is how to get free passes to “The Garfield Movie”:

You will need to create a Sony account to download the passes if you don't have one already.

The number of passes are limited. Getting a pass doesn't guarantee seating. 

It's smart to arrive early. Sneak previews are often overbooked to ensure a full house, so you must arrive early and prepared to wait in line. Seating is not guaranteed, just because you have a pass in hand. (By the way, movie studios also reserve seats for the press and VIPs. That’s why you see all of those seats with tape across them at every screening.)
