Love, life, laughter, and vegan adventures around Perth.

Remember when Mr Warbucks hired out the whole movie theatre for Annie? I loved the romantic notion of it then and I still do. No teenagers making out in the corner, no old guy rustling his Choc Top wrapper or coughing during the best scene - just you, your favourite people in the world, and the big screen. Oh, and popcorn and lollies, naturally.

Northbridge has gotten a little funkier since the last time you looked. If you searched now, you'd find a venue where you can do just that - and you don't have to have Mr Warbucks' billions to do it. 1Up Microcinema seats a cosy 20 people and is available for private screenings of their back catalogue of cult classics and festival favourites. Get a group of (8 or more) friends together and tickets are only $15 each including a free drink from the bar and an item from the candy bar. Oh yes, that's right, it's licensed too, so you can enjoy a smooth glass of red or a refreshing cider with your popcorn. How's that for decadence?

Think the coolness stops there? Not even close. Add beanbags, hot Milo, American candy, a digital art gallery and 20% off the price of the funky threads available in the fashion boutique downstairs. 1Up also regularly hosts activities like Mario Kart Speed Dating (because you can tell a lot about a person by the way they play the game), Sneaker Swapmeets, and retro gaming tournaments. Check out their Facebook page for details of what's on and get involved.

If you're feeling extra fancy or romantic, you could even splash a little more cash and hire out the whole cinema for just you and your sweetheart. Talk about brownie points. Insert coins to play.
