If you wanted tickets to the pre-release screening in Meridian of “Jason Bourne” with Oscar winner Matt Damon and multi-Oscar winner producer Frank Marshall, you’re too late.

Tickets are gone.

The Treasure Valley Family YMCA, the organization that will benefit from the event, sold more that 1,100 tickets for four theaters at Village Cinema at The Village at Meridian, 3711 E. Longwing Lane. The screening is Wednesday, July 20.

Damon and Marshall will be on the red carpet, introduce the film in all four theaters and attend a post-sceening VIP talk back and Q&A.

This marks Damon’s fourth visit to Boise with Marshall and the “Bourne” films.

In “Jason Bourne,” which will hit screens nationally on Friday, July 29, Damon returns to the role that propelled him into major action hero status.

The first three “Bourne” films centered on black-ops assassin Bourne’s struggle to regain his identity and reclaim his moral center after a trauma erased his memory. Damon did not appear in “The Bourne Legacy,” the fourth in the series. Marshall brought that film to Boise to raise funds for the Y-Camp at Horsethief Reservoir.

This screening will benefit the capital campaign for the YMCA’s South Meridian facility. That project recently got a boost when the Morrison Foundation donated the late Velma Morrison’s former home to the Y to sell. It’s currently listed for $1.9 million. Read a story about that here.
