If you can’t beat ’em join ’em?
Some cinemas are capitalising on the success of TV by offering big screen events.
Event Cinemas Campbelltown will host two Married At First Sight screenings this Sunday and Monday, to capitalise on the show’s finale. The sessions are free, but no doubt they will make a buck from the popcorn and drinks. Update: Also at Event Cinemas in Castle Hill.
ACMI cinema in Melbourne will screen the Game of Thrones premiere on April 15 at7pm (several hours after the Foxtel 11am debut). This is also a free event and is already sold out.
TV on cinema screens is also a regular event for State of Origin and Doctor Who.
I still remember Melrose Place screenings at bars… pizza, Heather Locklear, ahhhh Tuesday Night’s a Bitch.
