Kevin Hart and Ice Cube treated fans to a surprise guest appearance at the Northern premier of their latest box office comedy, Ride Along 2 at ODEON in The Printworks, Manchester.
The unexpected arrival of the celebrity pair was met with excitement and shock by 200 fans in the exclusive screening, where they thought they were simply getting a sneak preview of the film on Tuesday 19th January.
One fan said: “I won some free tickets for myself and a friend by entering a competition on The Printworks Facebook page. We were excited to be seeing Ride Along 2 before it is released, but when Kevin Hart and Ice Cube walked in to the screen before it started, I thought I was hallucinating – it was so surreal.”
Fred Booth, Centre Director at The Printworks, commented: “We regularly run competitions to win cinema tickets, as well as other special offers and prizes for experiences at The Printworks. When we offered tickets to Ride Along 2, the surprise guest appearance of the film’s leading actors was an incredible added bonus.”
ODEON is one of the UK’s most recognisable cinema brands and the one in The Printworks is a flagship site of the North with 20 screens, including Europe’s second largest IMAX screen.
Tickets for Ride Along 2 at ODEON in The Printworks are on general sale now. The eagerly-anticipated sequel to the smash hit original, which promises even more ridiculous action than last time, is showing from Friday 22nd January 2016.
