Orpheum Sign Ed Fuentes

Saturday afternoon Nintendo is throwing a competition at the Orpheum for the soon to be released Super Smash Bros. Brawl. It's a double win for Downtowners -- the chance to hang out inside one of our great historic theaters and the chance to play someone else's video games.

The first 256 players will compete in L.A's regional tournament, with the regional winner going on to NYC to face the three other regions in a national showdown. Grand prize winner gets "a crystal-coated Wii with a design from Super Smash Bros. Brawl, a home theater system from Best Buy and a copy of the game." Not too shabby.

It's free to enter, and doors open at 3pm. If you're angling to be in that first 256, I might recommend showing up and getting in line just a bit early. Those looking to watch can show up at any time. The Orpheum, as you should certainly know already, is at 842 S. Broadway.
