As I write this, a new mural is happening at The Capri Theatre at Goodwood. Many of you, I am sure, have admired the former mural that celebrated many Australian movies. A competition is being conducted in conjunction with the talented artistic duo, Vans the Omega (Joel Moore) and Jake Holmes, who are creating a new mural design depicting more good old Aussie movies, the Capri's beautiful architecture and its mighty Wurlitzer organ.
Although they are mainly based in Adelaide, Vans the Omega and Jake Holmes are two renowned contemporary mural painters. The artistic work of Vans the Omega can be seen in other countries such as Netherlands, Denmark, Turkey, Rome, Ireland, Dubai, New Zealand UK and USA, as well as around Australia.
Jake Holmes is the co-founder of Tooth and Nail Studio, an artist managed initiative in Adelaide, which is home to 25 independent artists which operates without Government funding. Jake also teaches both adults and children in a variety of artistic fields.
To celebrate the new mural, a competition is being conducted by The Capri Theatre, where you are invited to name all the movies depicted in the new mural.
To enter the competition you simply email your entry to firstname.lastname@example.org at The Capri Theatre. Two lucky winners will receive each a $50 voucher; one for the super tempting Cru Tapas Bar & Kitchen and one for the enticing Two Sisters Food & Wine.
Be sure to get your entry in before Friday the 15th of June at 5pm to be in the running.
Whilst the artistic works are underway, you can grab a meal at either Cru Tapas Bar & Kitchen or Two Sisters Food & Wine across the road and they will provide you with a movie ticket for The Capri for only $10. You will have the best seat in town to watch the artists' progress while you eat. Then watch a movie for a great price. The Mural Meal Deal is valid to the end of May, 2018.
