Man of Steel Ticket Giveaway!

Did you know? The man of steel has roots right here in Cleveland. A product of the creative minds of two east-side high school students, inspiration for the original “last son of Krypton” can still be found in the buildings, houses and streets of Northeast Ohio.

Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster first met at Glenville High School and in 1933 began an adventure comic strip featuring Superman. They had no way of knowing that their very own superhero would live on as an American cultural icon.

With the release of yet another Superman movie, Man of Steel, and on the coat tails of Cleveland’s dedicated Superman Day in celebration of Superman’s 75th Birthday, we’re feeling like it’s time for a #SUPERCLE GIVEAWAY.

Enter to win four tickets to Man of Steel opening showing Thursday night (midnight) at Capitol Theater by commenting below with the title of your favorite Superman movie to date. The winner will be chosen and announced right here on this blog tomorrow at 4pm. For an additional entry tweet the following tweet before tomorrow at 3:59pm and comment below letting me know you tweeted:

And the winner is: Christina, @MissSwiss

“My favorite movies has to be the original, “Superman: The Movie.” Christopher Reeve is the consummate definition of the Man of Steel.”

I also tweeted my extra entry, @MissSwiss.
