Congratulations to St. Louis, Missouri, the winner of our third TCM in Your Hometown contest!  Earlier this year, Backlot Members submitted pitches for why we should have a TCM event in their city.  We received many terrific entries, and after considering all the options, the TCM judges chose St. Louis as the winner.  Congratulations to Backlot Member Lisa Buchhold, who sent in the winning pitch for her home city!

And now we're happy to announce that TCM is coming to St. Louis with a free screening of the classic Meet Me in St. Louis (celebrating the movie's 75th anniversary!) featuring a special introduction and Q&A with actress Margaret O'Brien and TCM Host Ben Mankiewicz.

The historic Tivoli Theatre will be hosting this screening.  This event is FREE, but tickets are required for admission.  You can reserve your tickets at this link.  (UPDATE: All tickets have now been claimed.)

In addition, Backlot Members can win entry to a VIP Meet & Greet with Ben Mankiewicz and Margaret O'Brien, and Members are invited to submit a question to be asked to Margaret before the movie.  And all Backlot Members at the screening will receive an exclusive collectible pin, created just for this event!  We look forward to meeting you in St. Louis!
