'The Farewell' BYO Grandma Screening
Catch Awkwafina's latest — and take your nanna along for free.
One of this year's big Sundance hits is making its way to Australian cinemas next month, and New Farm Cinemas is marking the occasion in the appropriate fashion. Starring Awkwafina, The Farewell tells the tale of a family who gather around their beloved matriarch when she's diagnosed with terminal cancer, but decide not to tell her so that she can enjoy what time she has left. If that instantly makes you want to spend more time with your own nanna, the Brisbane venue not only wants you to bring her along to see the movie — it'll let you do so for free.
That's what this BYO grandma advanced screening is all about. Buy a single $16 adult ticket, and nab another one for your nan without spending a cent. You can also take your grandpa, if you'd prefer — although you can only take one for free.
Make a date in your diary for Sunday, August 25, with a free afternoon tea on offer from 1.30pm and the film kicking off at 2pm.
