'Glee' Premiere to Be Screened for Charity

Is the marketing and promotion for 'Glee' stoking the flames of enthusiasm among the fans or do they risk overdoing it by jumping at every opportunity to hype the show? Can't say for sure, but as long as the Gleeks are screaming in joy, they must be doing something right. And the latest idea is not only good for the show, it's good for charity, too.

Fox is arranging a sneak preview of the spring premiere in movie theaters around the country. Fans will be able to see the show a week before the program airs on Fox, Tuesday, April 13 (at the special time of 9:28 PM), and on the big screen as well.

In movie theaters around the country -- see the list below -- where the episode will be previewed. Tickets for the screening are $15 each, and every cent is going to the Grammy Foundation's "Grammy In the Schools" music education program for young people. Tickets are on sale right now at www.ticketsforcharity.com. You can go see the TV show and feel like you're doing something good for the community at the same time.

Here's the locations and theaters, as well as the times, in case you're ready to buy tickets:

-- New York, Wednesday,7:30 PM, April 7, AMC Loews 19th Street
-- Washington, D.C., Tuesday, April 6, 7 PM, Arlington Cinema 'N' Drafthouse
-- Atlanta, Wednesday, April 7, 8 PM, The Plaza Theatre
-- Chicago, Thursday, April 8, 7:30 PM, Hollywood Palms Cinema
-- Philadelphia, Thursday, April 8, 7 PM, The University of the Arts - Elaine C. Levitt Auditorium
-- Seattle, Wednesday, April 7, 6:30 PM, Experience Music Project
-- Nashville, Tuesday, April 6, 7 PM, Belcourt Theatre
-- Austin, Thursday, April 8, 7:30 PM, Alamo Drafthouse Cinema
-- Miami, Date/TimeTBA, South Beach Stadium, Lincoln Road Mall

By the way, chances are that each one of these screenings will include something more than just the TV show. Fox isn't saying, but for $15, something extra will likely be included. What do you think? Blooper reels? Messages from the stars? Surprise appearances by one of the cast members?

Surprised there are no screenings in Salt Lake. One of the theaters here regularly scores the highest weekend box office in the nation for family films.

Perhaps it was because they showed the first episode at PaleyFest in LA a couple of weeks ago. I would have gone if there was on in LA, and I already saw it.

Why no screening in Los Angeles?
