Theaters showing 'White House Down' free for active military and veterans

(KLTV) -

Studio Sony Pictures announced Tuesday that both active military members and veterans can make a trip to the theater to see "White House Down" free of charge on July 4 at participating theaters.

As long as the moviegoer has their military ID on them, they can attend any showing at any Regal Entertainment Group, AMC Theatres, Cinemark Theatres, or Carmike Cinemas theater, and they can also bring along one guest. The offer's only valid on the Fourth of July and seating is going to be on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Directed by disaster-film guru Roland Emmerich, "White House Down" stars Channing Tatum as a police officer who's itching to join the Secret Service but doesn't make it past his interview. Not wanting to disappoint his daughter, he takes her on a tour of the White House just as mercenaries descend upon 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. That somehow leaves Tatum's character as the one in charge of protecting the president (played by Jamie Foxx), his daughter and the country.
