When was the last time you and a friend were invited to a free night out with the chance to win some great prizes? Can’t remember? Well neither could I, but all that changed when The Inspired Occasion received an invitation from Time Out Magazine Melbourne to a special screening of the movie Young Adult staring Charlize Theron at Kino.
It just goes to show that I need to get out more, because I thought my guest and I would just roll up, take our seats, watch the movie and come home. How wrong was I ? On arrival we were warmly greeted by a member of the Time Out team and thanked for attending (hmm think we should have been doing the thanking). Once in the cinema you couldn’t help but notice that every seat had a gift bag placed on it. Being the woman I am I couldn’t wait to explore the contents which included a current copy of Time Out Magazine and lots of free and two for one promotional offers from well-known stores located in just about every suburb of Melbourne. Don’t you just hate getting offers for businesses that are miles away from where you live ? I know I do.
By now we are settled in our seats with goodie bags securely stowed waiting for the movie to start when a charming young lady makes her way to the front of the screen and gives us a quick (very quick) overview on what Time Out is all about and invites those people in the audience who are guests to sign up to their email newsletter so that they too can be invited to free events and receive informative information on what‘s happening on the Melbourne food, entertainment and arts scenes. But wait there’s more! We are asked to look under our seats because 8 lucky people are going to win the following prizes night for two at Crown Towers in a Deluxe room, 2 x $200 bar vouchers at The Vic Bar, 2 x Vouchers, champagne, cocktails, dinner and a show at Red Bennies (worth $250 each) and 3 x 6mth subscriptions to Time Out Melbourne. Unfortunately neither I nor my guest was a winner ( maybe next time).
Ok so now you want to know about the movie. Recently divorced writer Mavis, returns to her small home town, looking to rekindle a romance with her ex-boyfriend, who is now happily married and has a newborn daughter. This is a good lightweight movie that shows off the unique ability of Ms Theron to play anything from drama to comedy and isn’t afraid to do either with or without makeup. I give this move 7/10.
