The official release date for Blue Jasmine in the US is 26 July, but there will be a very special screening in New Jersey next month. It is the first publicly available tickets to see Woody Allen’s 2013 film.

There are two special screenings on the 27th June. Here are the details from the Monmouth Arts Website.

The Monmouth County Arts Council will premiere Woody Allen’s new film Blue Jasmine, on Thursday, June 27 3:30 and 7:30 p.m. at Clearview Cinema, 36 White Street, Red Bank. The film and reception are provided to Monmouth Arts through the generosity of Tom Bernard, Co Chair of Sony Pictures Classics and through Clearview Cinema.

A reception will be held at the bnew OceanFirst Financial Solutions Center at 73 Broad Street from 5:30–7:15 in between the two screenings.

The cost and how to get tickets:

Reception & Film: $35 Monmouth Arts members, $45 non-members,
Film only: $10

To reserve tickets contact 732-212-1890 or register online.

It is not unusual for films of this level to have screened before its release, usually as part of a film festival. This screening is a fundraiser for Monmouth Arts.

The screening comes almost a full month before its limited premiere in the US in New York and Los Angeles, let alone ahead of its roll out across the States and the world. At the time of this writing, there is no film festival appearances set.

We know that some in the film industry has already seen the film and the buzz has been good. We don’t know if there’s a press embargo, but we may be getting some reviews in just a few weeks.

  1. Got a couple of links for you. First off the Wall Street Journal have a preview of summer indies including Blue Jasmine, the article can only be read with a subscription but i pasted the text about BJ below:
    After venturing to Europe for his last three films, Woody Allen is back in the U.S. with this dark comedy about a Park Avenue social climber (Cate Blanchett) forced to slum it with her blue-collar sister (Sally Hawkins) in San Francisco when she loses everything. The film, co-starring Alec Baldwin and Bobby Cannavale, features inspired guest roles from Louis C.K., Andrew Dice Clay and a cameo by Ali Fedotowsky, who some may remember from the sixth season of ABC’s “The Bachelorette.”
    Secondly there is an interview with BJ DP Javier Aguirresarobe here:

  2. Wow, thanks for that interview with Javier Aguirresarobe – some very interesting details there, most notably that this film is shot in the more traditionally cinematic 2.35:1 format! I think that this is only Woody’s third film in that format, after Manhattan and Anything Else.

  3. Thanks so much for getting the word out on our premier! It is a fundraiser for our county arts organization, and Red Bank is easily accessible via train from NYC! Lots of great restaurants, so it’s a fun day trip! 🙂
