In collaboration with Event Cinemas





Celebrating the end of the year with a series of gifts and giveaways for our readers. A virtual Christmas party and our way of saying thank you for your love and support over the past 6ish years, as well as a further opportunity to showcase some of our favourite people, products and places in the process.





Event Cinemas - Merry Movies

In a week, where I managed to fit not one but six movie previews and launches in, including Star Wars: The Last Jedi at midnight at Event Cinemas Innaloo, on my daughter’s 18th birthday, it’s safe to say that I’m more than a bit of a movie buff.


You could also say, with one to two events most nights at this time of year, the silly season is well and truly upon us and finding time to fit so many movies in, means something has to give. In my case, that give has been Christmas shopping. I’ve barely had time to think about Christmas, let alone start shopping and truth be told, I’d rather eat the frog on my long to-do list than hit the shops right now.


Thankfully, the elves at Event Cinemas have come to my rescue with a brand new range of themed Merry Movies Gift Cards.  I can either shop online (, having the gift cards delivered direct or pick them up when I’m next at my local Event Cinemas, avoiding the shops (and crowds) altogether. It’s a WIN WIN in my Christmas Shopping 101 books!


Event Cinemas Merry Movies


The Merry Movies Gift Cards come in a variety of fun designs, including summer blockbuster film themed cards, with prices ranging from an affordable $25 to a maximum of $200.


I don’t know anyone that doesn’t like to head to the cinema to watch a film, so a cinema gift card has always been my last minute gift back up plan, no matter what the occasion but especially at Christmas. Apart from wanting to avoid the shops at this time of year, I also prefer to avoid bulky gifts so I can keep postage costs down, with all of our extended family (including 13 nieces and nephews) on the other side of the country. Spending less on postage, means more money for gifts. Another WIN WIN.

  1. Great idea. I’ve been slacker than slack this year with Christmas gifts and was looking for gift vouchers but something that would suit everyone. Now if I was lucky enough to win, I would see the new Star Wars film.

  2. NRMA use to offer discounted movie tickets but I’m not sure they still do. Love this gift idea, especially now they are xmas themed. Wonder is on the top of my movie list for the holidays.

  3. Great idea. I’m almost sorted but still looking for stocking fillers. There are so many great movies out right now. The trailers from Daddy’s home 2 look hilarious.

  4. Such an awesome idea. We’re enjoying a more “minimalist Christmas” where we’re all about gifting experiences, not things, so these cards would be perfect. I have a long list of movies that I want to see including Paddington 2 and Daddy’s Home – the trailers for both look amaze!

    • We are just back from the Paddington 2 advanced screening. I thought it was a sweet film. Hubby wasn’t so impressed but personally, given he is suppose to be on holidays already but he is still picking up the slack for others with end of year deadlines, he probably needed an action film to distract him.

  5. You are so right! There’s nothing better than managing to avoid the shops at this time of the year!
    Since we are in the midst of the silly season, I think its only fitting to sit through a ‘silly’ film! I’d go watch Pitch Perfect 3 for a few giggles (and maybe laugh off some of those christmas feasts! )

  6. Love going to the movies! I’ve just seen “The Greatest Showman” trailer and it looks great. Hugh Jackman’s character says “I promised you a life of magic and wonder” …yes please, I’m in!

  7. I’m a huge fan of gifting experiences instead of ‘stuff’ so these are such a great gift idea. I love movies. If it was just me, I think I’d go see Wonder, but I know the kids really want to see Coco… and if I’m honest I’d love that one too

  8. We’ve decided as a family to gift experiences this year and these cards are a great idea. I’m keen to see Coco with the kids.

  9. Fantastic idea. I was at the shops yesterday with everyone else wanting to pull my hair out. Any of the kids films, Paddington 2 or Coco.

    • I think my media review embargo has now lifted for this film and I can honestly say while it isn’t my top pick of the flicks, I liked it a lot more than I thought I would and laughed on the inside for a lot of the film.

  10. PICK ME… I would love to win movie tickets or find a gift card in my stocking this year. There are so many fab films coming up on boxing day. Would be happy to see any or all of them.

    • Have you seen 1 and 2? I hadn’t but a quick review of their trailers and it didn’t seem to matter. Lots of laughs. Although Malinda (The Style Within), my trusty plus 1 had seen both previous films and laughed a lot more than I did.

  11. Downsizing or Daddy’s Home 2. Both films look hilarious and I could certainly do with a good laugh and some escapism this crazy Christmas.
