HBO plans early 'Girls' screening in Chicago, elsewhere

HBO has decided its best to watch "Girls" with all your girlfriends. The cable network is planning "Girls Night Out" screening events in Chicago and seven cities.

The screenings of the first two episodes will take place Jan. 6, the same night as the New York premiere of the third season at Jazz at Lincoln Center. HBO will show a live feed of the red carpet featuring series creator and star Lena Dunham and other cast members including Jemima Kirke, Allison Williams, Zosia Mamet, Adam Driver and Alex Karpovsky. Dunham also will offer up greeting personalized for each city, which also include Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Dallas, Philadelphia, San Francisco (delayed) and Washington, D.C.

For complete information and to register to attend a screening, follow the official Girls Tumblr. HBO is partnering with Tumblr, Shecky’s, Georgetown Cupcake and Comcast/Xfinity for these events.

The first two episodes of Season 3 will air back-to-back beginning at 9 p.m. Jan. 12 after the debut of "True Detective."
