Remember way back when we told you that For Reels was sponsoring its first-ever event and it was a screening of Smokey and the Bandit with special guests Burt MF'in Reynolds and TCM's Ben Mankiewicz? Apparently Turner Classic Movies, the presenter, has actually corralled the mustached one, and we have your FREE TICKETS!

The event sold out in less than 24 hours for the nearly 1,500-seat Tampa Theatre, but we have 10 passes for you! (Each pass admits 2.) Just email us at and the first 10 people are Burt-bound! (We will only respond to the first 10. If you don't hear from us, that means we're fresh out. Sorry.)

By the way, Facebookers who like our fan page most likely got the jump on ya. Don't let that happen again. Like us here. For everyone's sake...
