The event is a part of a collaboration between Collider and Alamo Drafthouse, which will host the special screenings on March 23 in Austin, Denver, Los Angeles, and New York City. After showing the first two episodes in theaters, attendees will also be able to watch a Q&A with the show's cast and producers. Starting Friday, March 11, Collider editor-in-chief Steven Weintraub will be giving tickets away for the event, and he will be getting the names of potential winners over the following days.

Weintraub shared the news on Twitter, as you can see in the tweet embedded here:

Weintraub didn't say how the tickets will be distributed, but fans eager to catch Halo's first two episodes should check his Twitter account for more updates.

The Halo TV series stars Pablo Schreiber as Master Chief, and he will be joined by Natasha McElhone as Dr. Halsey, “the brilliant, conflicted and inscrutable creator of the Spartan super soldiers”; Bokeem Woodbine as Soren, “a morally complex privateer at the fringes of human civilization whose fate will bring him into conflict with his former military masters and his old friend, the Master Chief”; and newcomer Yerin Ha as Kwan, “a shrewd, audacious 16-year-old from the Outer Colonies who meets Master Chief at a fateful time for them both.”
