Free Ticket Giveaway to Screening of “The Trip”

We’re hosting another free ticket giveaway for the advance screening of the film, The Trip. We have a bunch of tickets (admits 2) to give away. Just write an email to TheTripChicago@yahoo.com and cc –  staff@chicagoartmachine.com and we’ll take down this post once 50 tickets have been given away.


Playing loose versions of themselves, Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon reprise their hilariously fictionalized roles from TRISTAM SHANDY: A COCK AND BULL STORY and reunite with acclaimed director Michael Winterbottom (24 HOUR PARTY PEOPLE) for an acerbically witty, largely improvised ride through the English countryside. Tapped by The Observerto review fine restaurants throughout the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales, Steve (Coogan) finds himself without a traveling companion after his girlfriend decides not to go at the last minute. After being turned down by everyone else he knows, Steve extends an invitation to Rob (Brydon), and together the pair attempt to navigate the winding back roads of rural England, impersonating popular celebrities such as Michael Caine, Woody Allen and Liam Neeson (among many others) and bickering along the way. Over the course of six different meals at six different restaurants, the ultimate odd couple tests the limits of their friendship, questioning what is most important to them and along the way discover the limits of what they are and are not willing to give up for fame.

The Trip will be screening Monday, June 13th at the Landmark Century Cinema at 7:30pm
