SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - Santa Fe fans of HBO’s “Game of Thrones” will have a chance to get a sneak peek at the TV show’s April 6 season premiere in English and Spanish, thanks to the author who started it all.

The New Mexican reports (http://bit.ly/1fSyr03) that George R.R. Martin, whose “Song of Ice and Fire” book series inspired the show, will offer two free showings Saturday at his Santa Fe theater, Jean Cocteau Cinema.

Vince Kadlubeck, a theater spokesman, says Martin wants fellow Santa Fe residents from the Spanish-speaking community to come watch.

Officials say only 125 tickets are available.

They say the Spanish-language screening, which will have no subtitles, is at 10:30 a.m. and the English-language one is at 1:30 p.m.

Martin bought the theater last year and re-opened it Aug. 9.
