Care to join us for a screening of the new film, “Invictus” starring Morgan Freeman and Matt Damon?

In case you haven't heard, the Warner Bros.' release, directed by Clint Eastwood, concerns Nelson Mandela's efforts to bring the 1995 Rugby World Cup to South Africa.

IBJ is hosting a screening on Monday, Dec. 7th at AMC Castleton at 7:30.

To score yourself a pass, just post a note here telling our readers your favorite sports movie AND e-mail lharry@ibj.com with "Invictus" on the subject line. I'll contact winners until passes run out.

PLEASE NOTE: A pass does not guarantee admission. Once seats are filled, even pass holders will be turned away, so arrive early.

Good luck.

  • The Fighting Irish
    Rudy... Rudy... Rudy
  • Gotta Go With...
    My first thought was Field of Dreams, but I would also include Breaking Away, 61*, Hoosiers, and Caddyshack.
  • Hoosiers
    Gene Hackman in Hoosiers for sure!
  • One for the ladies...
    No, not Paul Newman in Slapshot. A League of Their Own.
  • Omar Epps in...
    Love & Basketball
  • The Mighty Ducks
    My favorite sports movie will always be The Mighty Ducks. It's both feel-good and incredibly funny.
  • Invictus
    Cool Runnings! Is this really a sports movie? I don't know, but it's my favorite. I'm not a huge sports movie fan, but Invictus seems like it'll focus a bit more on the politics than the sports.

      Buffalo 66 - more of a 1st-day-out-of-jail/gambling-gone-wrong/sports hybrid. But a great flick nonetheless. The final scene to Yes' "Heart of the Sunrise" is all-time..
    • Facing the Giants
      good story line

      The Natural-- simply fantastic

    • A girl thing...
      I've gotta say mine is "A League of Their Own." Maybe it's a girl thing... :-)
    • Invictus
      I just saw the movie "The Blind Side" and I thoroughly enjoyed the story. Watching the Michael Oher go from basketball to football star and the story behind the story was very moving. I recommend you to see it soon.

      Rocky 4 is my favorite Sports movie.

      You have to love Sly Stallone in this one and the slow-motion shot of Pele doing the bicycle kick is classic, even if you hate soccer.

    • "Invictus"
      "Eight Men Out" because I was an extra for the local production

      Hoosiers and Breaking Away. Two sports classics featuring the Hoosier state. Also, the Pixar movie Cars.
    • Sports Film
      It has to be a "League of Their Own" I loved all the great stars.
    • Hmm...
      What kind of hoosier would I be if I didn't go with, um, Hoosiers? I recently saw Running the Sahara, which was quite good as well. But, it wasn't set in Indiana as you may have guessed.
    • Invictus
      A League of its own
    • Tickets for Invictus
      RUDY for sure!
    • Caddyshack for Invictus
      "Cinderella story... kid fresh outta nowhere... (SMACK) Oh, he's gotta be likin' that shot. It's in the hole!"
      Bill Murray
      Hoosiers all day!!!!!!
    • Fun and Sexy!
      Bull Durham hands down...it's funny, got baseball and exudes sexiness!
    • Favorite Sports movie
      Bad News Bears...the original. As a girl growing up I was quite a tomboy and honored to be one of the first girls to play Little league baseball with the boys. Bad News Bears inspired me all my life try anything a boy/man could do.
    • The Blind Side
      It was a great story.
    • Blind Side
      My new favorite sports movie The Blind Side. Loved it!
    • Cool Runnings!
      I have to agree with Jeremy and say Cool Runnings! I thought The Blind Side was excellent, as well.
    • Sports Movie
      For sure 'Breaking Away.' It's a CLASSIC!
    • Sports Movie
    • Invictus
      Field of Dreams - favorite!
    • Favorite Sports Movie
      The Blind Side is my most recent favorite. How about Hoosiers, Breaking Away, Remember the Titans, and pretty much any of the ones where the underdog wins.
    • Favorite Sports Movie
      A more recent favorite of mine is "Any Given Sunday" - great flick showing the ins and outs of sports team ownership!
    • The Blind Side
      Having just seen "The Blind Side", it is definitely my new favorite sports film!
    • Hoosiers
      it may be cliche, but my all-time, goosebump-inducing sports flick!
    • Ragging Bull
      Robert Diniro
    • Invictis
      Favorite sports movie this year was Holyland Hardball. It was different because it attempted to takethe game of baseball to Israel and they had no understanding of the game.
    • Blind Side
      Just saw the Blind Side and thought it was soooo good!
    • Breaking Away An Indiana Classic
      I was a student at IU when "Breaking Away" was filmed. Not only a great film but it has some of my friends in the background!
    • Sorts Flick
      You can't forget "Slap Shot'..
    • sports... best movies ever
      My favorite of all time... TIN CUP... i know every word to every line... L-O-V-E IT
    • rudy
    • Happy Gilmore
      Happy Gilmore without a doubt!
    • No Contest
    • Original runners movie
      Chariots of fire
    • The Mighty Ducks
      They were great. The kids in the movies actually could act sometimes a rareity. Then the game scenes. It was a fun set of movies.
    • My choice...
      My favorite sports film is Rudy. Gotta love that Jerry Goldsmith score.
    • The Mean Machine
      My favorite sports movie is The Mean Machine. It's a British version of The Longest Yard. It's about soccer and starts Vinnie Jones and Jason Statham and is friggin hilarious.
      Some strong choices in the mix. Thanks to all for playing. Winners have been notified. Enjoy the film tonight (and make sure to arrive early to make sure you get in).
