Kevin Smith Gives Free ‘Red State’ Tickets to NYPD

The ‘Cop Out’ director has reserved a bloc of tickets for the Radio City Music Hall kickoff of his ‘Red State’ Tour for police officers and their dates

Filmmaker Kevin Smith is a generous guy: Last month, he auctioned off two of his personal tickets for the world premiere of his film "Red State" at the Sundance Film Festival.

Now, he's giving away more tickets, this time to the New York Police Department, so officers can attend the first date of the national Red State Tour at Radio City Music Hall.

The director of 2010's "Cop Out" has reserved a bloc of tickets for police officers and their significant others for the March 5.

“It will be the safest premiere on the planet," Smith joked in a written statement.

The tour includes a screening of the movie and then a live appearance by Smith, where the director will discuss the film. Tickets are available through Ticketmaster. Tickets for the Radio City event run from $54.50 to $124.50. They're less expensive in other cities.

"Red State," about three boys who go into the woods to find sex and instead find God, stars Michael Parks, John Goodman, Melissa Leo, Kyle Gallner, Michael Angarano, Nocolas Braun, Stephen Root, Kerry Bishe and Betty Aberlin.
