See Sundance Channel's 'Rectify' on big screen before TV premiere

Sundance Channel and the Music Box Theatre are giving Chicago viewers a chance to see the first two hours of its new drama "Rectify" days before it premieres on TV.

In order to attend the national premiere screening at 7 p.m. April 16 at Music Box Theatre, 3733 N. Southport Ave., you must hurry and RSVP at musicboxtheatre.com. Seating is limited and available on a first come-first served basis. Only the first 600 people will be admitted.

The special preview screening will be followed by a live-streamed, Skype Q&A with the cast, director and producers. "Rectify," Sundance Channel's first wholly owned scripted series, comes from the producers of "Breaking Bad," and stars Aden Young, Adelaide Clemens, Abigail Spencer and Luke Kirby. Ray McKinnon, who played Linc on "Sons of Anarchy," created and wrote the series.

In the series, Young plays Daniel Holden, who is released from prison after spending 19 years on Death Row for the rape and murder of his teenage girlfriend.

Says Sundance, "His conviction has been vacated due to new DNA evidence, thrusting him back into a world he no longer knows. Having spent his adult life waiting to die, Daniel must now learn how to live again. But, his reentry into the outside world may be as unforgiving as prison. He is haunted by the past, dogged by the present and uncertain of the future. As he struggles to adapt to his new life, his return will reignite the fears of a small town and threaten to shatter his family's fragile peace. Daniel's alleged crime divided a community. His freedom could tear it in half."

The series premieres at 8 p.m. April 22 on the Sundance Channel.
