ABC preview screenings coming to Chicago, other cities

ABC will give viewers a chance to see some of its new fall 2015 series well before their premiere dates when the ABC Summer Block Party comes to Chicago, Nashville, Detroit, Milwaukee, Del Mar and Sacramento.

Screenings of “Blood & Oil,” “Quantico” and a special preview of “The Muppets” will take place inside the Cinetransformer, a 91-seat mobile cinema housed in a 53-foot double-expandable trailer. Those who attend screenings will receive free items such as “Blood & Oil” hats, “Quantico” T-shirts and “The Muppets” pins.

All screenings are first-com, first-served.
