See Blade Runner 2049 and support a great Brisbane charity
The Brisbane Basket Brigade does great work every Christmas distributing food and gifts to families in crisis or need, but they need your help to do this. On October 13 they will be holding a fundraising movie night at Palace Centro Fortitude Valley featuring the recent release movie Blade Runner 2049.

About Brisbane Basket Brigade

Every year, there are many families in Brisbane who are unable to celebrate Christmas as they simply don't have enough money for a Christmas meal or presents. The Brisbane Basket Brigade attempts to spread Christmas cheer by collecting food and presents, packaging them up and delivering them to families around the Greater Brisbane area. The families are nominated by community support organisations who have identified them as in need.

About Blade Runner 2049

This is the long (and I mean...really looooong) awaited sequel to the 1982 science fiction classic Blade Runner. Set 30 years after the first movie, Ryan Gosling plays a young blade runner, basically a police officer who tracks down artificial humans called replicants. He uncovers a secret that could mean the downfall of humanity and he must track down a former blade runner Rick Deckard, played by Harrison Ford,

Initial reviews from early screening sare saying that this is the sequel fans have been hoping for.

About the Deal

For the movie night fundraiser tickets are $30 and include the following
1. A ticket to see the movie (obviously)
2. Your choice of either a combo of drink and popcorn from the candy bar, a glass of wine or a beer.
3. 1 entry into the lucky door draw
3. 1 ticket in the raffle (you can buy more tickets on the night to support the Brisbane Basket Brigade)

That is pretty good value for money, especially given that it is for a good cause.
