Center City could host Will Ferrell/Mark Wahlberg premiere

Philadelphia is one of five cities that could host a premiere of “The Other Guys,” which would bring Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg, who’s shot 5 movies here, to town Aug. 5.

You can vote here through Friday to make that happen. Philadelphia is battling St. Louis. Atlanta, Dallas and Houston for the screening. If Philadelphia wins, the screening would be held at “a Center City theater,” says a movie spokesman, clearly referring to the Prince Music Theater (1412 Chestnut).

The film is by director Adam McKay, the Malvern native and former "SNL" writer who directed Ferrell in "Anchorman," "Talladega Nights," and "Step Brothers." It opens nationwide Aug. 6.
