Paramount to host ‘Anchorman’ pub run and screening
The Paramount will host an Anchorman pub run, costume contest and screening on Jan. 13.

Time to brush off your leisure suit, folks.

The Paramount Theatre will celebrate the legend of Ron Burgundy and his Action News crew with a pub run, costume contest and movie screening on Tuesday, Jan. 13.

The run starts at 6 p.m., followed by the film at 7:45 p.m. Cost for both is $20. The movie by itself is $10.

Participants will walk or run to an as yet undisclosed nearby newsworthy destination and enjoy a pint of local brew before heading back to watch the movie. Everyone will get two tickets good for beer, soda or popcorn.

Registration and ID check begins at 6 p.m. at the Stateside Theatre, 719 Congress Ave. Proceeds benefit the historic Paramount Theatre. For more information go here.
