There’s a Django-themed bounty hunt from noon starting at Golden Apple on Melrose Avenue and ending 6:30 p.m. at the New Beverly Theatre, just down the street. (It's co-owned by Tarantino.)

Participants can receive clues by showing up at Golden Apple or via Django Unchained Facebook or Twitter sites.

From there, you’ll be on the trail to four locations, where you're required to take pictures and upload them to #LAUnchained, and keep moving.

The event culminates at the Beverly with an evening that promises a screening of the movie plus prizes and more.
