Free, all-ages screening of ‘Eighth Grade’ set for Cinemark Valley View

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- A24 wants to make sure anybody’s who been through the 8th grade has a chance to see its latest film, “Eighth Grade.”

That’s why the indie movie studio is holding free, all-ages screenings of the film in all 50 states. Ohio’s will take place at Cinemark Valley View on Wednesday, Aug. 8 at 6:25 p.m.

“Eighth Grade,” which opened in Cleveland two weekends ago, is rated R, but the rating won’t be enforced for the free screenings. Tickets are first come, first serve. Moviegoers can line up starting an hour before showtime.

The film stars Elsie Fisher as Kayla, a 13-year-old struggling to find herself in a world dominated by cliques and social media during her last week of middle school. Directed by comedian Bo Burnham, the film is one of the best reviewed movies of the year with a 98 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes. It’s been called a modern day “The Breakfast Club.”

The movie is also playing at regular prices with R-rated restrictions at The Capitol, Cedar Lee, Richmond Town Square, Crocker Park and Chagrin Cinemas.
