Movie Sucker Punch opens March 25 at Esquire Theatre

Movie Sucker Punch opens March 25 at Esquire Theatre

Sucker Punch: The IMAX Experience opens March 25, 2011. Tickets on sale now.

Close your eyes. Open your mind. You will be unprepared. Sucker Punch takes us into the vivid imagination of a young girl whose dream world provides the ultimate escape from her darker reality. Unrestrained by the boundaries of time and place, she is free to go where her mind takes her, and her incredible adventures blur the lines between what's real and what is imaginary.

She has been locked away against her will, but Babydoll (Emily Browning) has not lost her will to survive.

Jimmy Short sent this photo into News10.  It's a photo of Markcurtis Otani & Jimmy Short with comic legend Joan Rivers. It was taken at The Crest Theatre in Sacramento on Sunday evening, March 13, 2011.

Joan Rivers LOVED Markcurtis bringing his own red carpet! She said that topped it all and really made her trip to Sacramento. The pictures are of them both on the red carpet, asking each other who they are wearing! Hilarious show!
