Here is a synopsis of the movie:

Synopsis:  From Visionary filmmaker Jeymes Samuel, The book of Clarence is a bold new take on the timeless Hollywood era Biblical epic. Streetwise but struggling, Clarence (LaKeith Stanfield) is trying to find a better life for himself and his family, make himself worth to the women he loves, and prove that he’s not a nobody. Captivated by the power and glory of the rising Messiah and His apostles, he risks everything to carve his own path to a divine life, a journey through which he finds redemption and faith, power, and knowledge. The Book of Clarence Official Soundtrack features new music by Jeymes Samuel, JAY-Z, Lil Wayne, Kid Cudi and more. 

Free advance screening is:

  • Thursday, January 4, at AMC Aventura, at 7:30 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 Book of Clarence”:

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.)
