Grab your girlfriends and head out for a night away from your partner, kids, or just the daily stress of work. Every few months (or every month if you're lucky) Greater Union Cinemas host a Chicks At The Flicks event. It changes each time, depending on what chick flick is being released at the time. Previous movies have been; Bridesmaids, Morning Glory, Life As We Know It, No Strings Attached, Friends With Benefits, and the most recent Crazy, Stupid, Love.
I've been to 5 Chick Flick Events that have been hosted at Greater Union Arndale and will continue to go to further events. Now, they may not run smoothly every time but they're always so much fun. The girls who run it always have a welcoming smile on their face and obviously put a lot of thought into the evening. If you arrive an hour before the film there is always fun and games awaiting you. Several companies use the Chick Flick events to promote their products, so there's always different stalls filled with samples for you to try. There has also been nights with free food and drinks on arrival, massages, and so much more.
Ticket prices depend on what arrangement you choose. VMAX tickets are $24 and traditional tickets are $21. If you are an Optus Movie Rewards member then you're lucky because you get a $5 discount, how great is that? If you really want to lash out on a girl's night then you can opt for Gold Class for $65, which includes a set meal and dessert. Included in all ticket prices is a goodie bag. This is my favourite part. It comes filled with lovely treats for the ladies from a wide variety of brands. It's always a surprise that every lady looks forward to.
