I’ve been under the weather over the past couple of days and I don’t have the energy to write up too much in this week’s Film Pie blog.
I thought I would mention that I’ll be making an appearance at some Westfield shopping centres in Brisbane over the next couple of weekends to talk about movies coming out between now and Christmas. The focus is on Mental, Argo, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2, Skyfall, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and Les Miserables.
I was at Westfield Carindale last week and you can check out a photo of me in action above.
I was also lucky enough to be given a tour of the new Event Carindale cinemas. They’ve been created as more of an upmarket venue in the Event chain with just 8 cinemas in total – 3 V-Max cinemas, 2 regular cinemas and 3 Gold Class cinemas. You can therefore expect these cinemas to focus on the big blockbusters. If you’re looking for more variety, you’ll need to go to Event Garden City (16 screens) which isn’t too far away.
The Gold Class cinemas won’t be open until mid November but will feature a huge bar area that will be ideal for functions and entertaining. I was glad to see that the entrance to the Gold Class cinemas will be from the rear which will help prevent the distraction of staff coming in and out of the theatre when delivering food/drinks.
Anyway, if you want to pop along and say hi (or perhaps heckle me), I’ll be appearing at Westfield Chermside (just outside the cinemas) at 2:30pm on Sunday, October 14 and then at Westfield Garden City (near the food court) at 1:00pm on Saturday, October 20.
Over and out!
