Do you live in New England and need to check out of the real world for a couple hours today?

Redbox has your back.

To console fans in the Super Bowl runner-up city, the national video rental chain will give Boston/Providence area residents a free movie rental. The offer is good for today, Feb. 5, only.

Here’s How Patriots Fans Can Claim a Free Movie

To redeem the offer, enter promo code CHEERUP at any Redbox machine in the Boston area, and boom, temporary escape. You can also use this promo code online or in the Redbox app, but make sure the box you choose to pick up at is in the Boston area.

The upside: free movie.

The downside: You have to leave the house and face the real world momentarily. But hey, you can get more beer while you’re up.

Until next year.
