The Music Box announced a free secret screening yesterday, claiming they couldn't share any details at all. However, Patton Oswalt basically spilled the beans: it's his new film Young Adult, co-starring Charlize Theron and Patrick Wilson, which doesn't open until Dec. 16. And if Oswalt's in town, you can be sure our own Steve at the Movies will be involved somehow.

"Only" 700 people will be allowed into the theater, on a first-come, first served basis -- and it appears it's already sold out. As a corollary, if you're not going to the show, you might want to avoid Southport Saturday night at around 7pm.
