We’ve got tickets to not one, not two, but 15 Draft Day screenings next week. And, unlike an NFL game, each one is absolutely free.
Fifteen cities who have NFL teams have been chosen by Summit for special advanced screenings of the sports drama, which stars Kevin Costner, Jennifer Garner and Denis Leary. Directed by Ivan Reitman from the Black List script by Rajiv Joseph and Scott Rothman, Draft Day tells the story of the Cleveland Browns general manage (Costner) who must decide his team’s fate based on the pick in the NFL Draft. The whole city is hanging on his decision and, over the course of one day, he’ll take that city on a real roller-coaster ride of emotion.
The first film ever officially endorsed by the NFL, Draft Day is goose bump inducing, high-energy entertainment. Sure, a love of sports – especially the NFL and the NFL draft – only helps, but even non-fans should enjoy this crazy crowd-pleaser. It’s a ton of fun.

On the day of the NFL Draft, general manager Sonny Weaver (Costner) has the opportunity to save football in Cleveland when he trades for the number one pick. He must quickly decide what he’s willing to sacrifice in pursuit of perfection as the lines between his personal and professional life become blurred on a life-changing day for a few hundred young men with dreams of playing in the NFL.
