Alisa Herr, EdNC’s rock star CTO, will be hosting an advance screening of the new Disney film “Tomorrowland” on Monday, May 18 at Regal Cinemas at North Hills in Raleigh. The movie follows the story of a girl named Casey, a bright, optimistic teen bursting with scientific curiosity, who embarks on a danger-filled mission to unearth the secrets of an enigmatic place somewhere in time and space known only as Tomorrowland.

EdNC has five family four-packs of tickets to give away to readers local to the Triangle. The movie is rated PG and children are encouraged to attend! If you would like a chance to see the advance screening of “Tomorrowland,” please email
