Barnes & Noble Bookstores to Host LEGO Movie-Themed Events Starting Jan. 25

With the premiere of The LEGO Movie coming next month, Barnes & Noble will host special events at their bookstores nationwide, with the kickoff on Saturday, Jan. 25.  From the press release:

For the LEGO Hands-On Learning “Count Down to the Movie” event, LEGO fans will learn about LEGO’s first-ever full-length feature film and join in fun activities. Customers can also listen to The LEGO Movie theme song from the upcoming Soundtrack and enjoy a screening of the official trailer for The LEGO Movie on NOOK® devices. Space is limited to 50 participants per store who will receive a mini movie poster. Customers are encouraged to contact their local Barnes & Noble store for additional information and to sign up for the event.

To find contact info for your local Barnes & Noble click here for their store locator.  The last LEGO event hosted by B&N featured freebuilds from their LEGO Architecture line, and participants got to take home free bricks.  That’s never a bad thing.  🙂
