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.
