FOXBOROUGH–Local gamers will get the chance to play Minecraft on the big screen this weekend at Showcase Cinema de Lux at Patriot Place.

Beginning on April 29, Showcase Cinema de Lux is teaming up with Super League to host the tournament, Boston Revolt City Champs: Minecraft.

Instead of playing the popular 3-D online game at home, participants are given the chance to come to the theatre, team up and compete in a series of three head-to-head sessions for a chance to enter the Grand Final championship, taking place on Saturday, May 20.

“The idea is to take Minecraft and make it a more communal environment where kids can play together,” said Showcase Vice President, Mark Malinowski.

The event is geared towards pre-teens, he said.

Tickets for the event cost $60 per player. Tickets include admission to the three events, an official club jersey, 90 minutes of gameplay per event, access to seven unique games modes and exclusive heroes, and a chance to qualifty for the grand final. Parents accompanying their child are free.

The first event is this Saturday, April 29 from 10:15a.m.-12p.m. The second and third events are scheduled for Saturday, May 6 (10:15a.m.-12p.m.) and Saturday May 13 (10:15a.m-12p.m.). The grand final is slated for Saturday, May 20 from 1:15-3p.m. Players are asked to arrive 15 minutes prior to the start time.

Showcase Cinema de Lux is located at 24 Patriot Place, Foxborough.
