Thirty something girl, originally from Sydney but Brisbane is home now. Eats, drinks, socialises, watches art-house, studies the stars, and loves music. I'm a professional copywriter and editor. Hearts writing things.
Now here's a sure-fire way to stave off Mondayitis. Head along to the Gala Academy Award Event being held at Dendy Portside on Monday 25 February, from 11am to 2.30pm. Celebrate cinematic excellence by watching the coveted awards ceremony on the big screen as you relive the golden movie moments of 2012.
Televised in more than 100 countries, the annual Academy Awards ceremony (affectionately known as 'The Oscars') is now in its 85th year. The awards inauguration dates back to 1929 at a ceremony in Hollywood, and has enjoyed increasing popularity ever since. Winners will be awarded for Best Picture, Best Animated Feature Film, Best Actor/Actress in a Leading Role, Best Supporting Actor/Actress, along with a host of other awards in categories such as costume design, cinematography, visual effects, directing, and much more. You can check out all the 2013 nominees here and also see trailers for each of the acclaimed movies.
Dendy guests will be treated to canapés and refreshments on arrival, followed by a light lunch. There's also bottomless tea, coffee and popcorn available throughout the event.
Be the best dressed male or female for your chance to win some prizes. Plus, there's also a lucky door prize too.
Ticket prices for Club Dendy members are $35 for adults, $32 for seniors and $34.50 for students. Non-Club Dendy members pay $41.50 as an adult, $36 as a senior and $38 as a student. Tickets are only available through the Dendy box office or by phone.
Even if you can't make it along, why not enter Dendy's 'Academy Awards' competition by voting for the film you think will win Best Picture? Nominees are: Amour, Argo, Beasts of the Southern Wild, Django Unchained, Les Miserables, Life of Pi, Lincoln, Silver Linings Playbook and Zero Dark Thirty. Visit the Dendy website for more details, but hurry, votes must be in by 24 February for your chance to win a Dendy Gold Card and an award-winning DVD pack.
So go on, treat yourself like a red carpet celebrity just because you can.
