Did you have a chance to get away this Memorial Day weekend? Well, even if you didn't leave the comfort of home, it seems that fans of Wes Anderson, who were living near theaters where "Moonrise Kingdom" started rolling out in limited release, had their own escape at the movies this holiday weekend. The limited release broke the box office, smashing records for per-screen average on its first weekend. Not too bad at all. The tale of two young kids who fall in love and hit the road has been gaining steam since opening the Cannes Film Festival a couple of weeks ago, and for two of our lucky readers, we've got a great prize pack that captures the spirit of the film and will get you ready for a summer getaway.

Did you have a chance to get away this Memorial Day weekend? Well, even if you didn't leave the comfort of home, it seems that fans of Wes Anderson, who were living near theaters where "Moonrise Kingdom" started rolling out in limited release, had their own escape at the movies this holiday weekend. The limited release broke the box office, smashing records for per-screen average on its first weekend. Not too bad at all. The tale of two young kids who fall in love and hit the road has been gaining steam since opening the Cannes Film Festival a couple of weeks ago, and for two of our lucky readers, we've got a great prize pack that captures the spirit of the film and will get you ready for a summer getaway.

Here's what 2 lucky winners will receive: the original soundtrack, a Camp Ivanhoe T-shirt, a canteen, a cooler and a set of patches. How do you win?
