True Detective fans have a chance to see the first two episodes of season 3 nearly a month before everybody else.

HBO is partnering with Alamo Drafthouse to have screenings at 18 theaters across the country on Dec. 18.

Best part: The screenings are free (with a $5 voucher purchase for food and drink).

The one-night-only event comes weeks before the drama returns to HBO on Jan. 13.

Tickets can be purchased here (go-go-go!) and below is a list of participating locations.

The new season “tells the story of a macabre crime in the heart of the Ozarks, and a mystery that deepens over decades and plays out in three separate time periods.” Mahershala Ali stars as Wayne Hays, a state police detective from Northwest Arkansas. Carmen Ejogo and Stephen Dorff also star.
