To celebrate the passion and artistry of Italian cinema, we're giving ten lucky Playgrounders (and their mates) free tickets to one of the most anticipated films of this year's Lavazza Italian Film Festival: the Australian premiere of Bangla. And, not only will you be watching this fresh and witty rom-com on the big screen, but you'll also be treated to dinner and drinks beforehand — on us.

It's called Culture Club. We've teamed up with Palace Cinemas to curate a (free) evening of food, drinks, film and conversation — and the next club meeting will take place next month, on Saturday, October 12.

From 6pm, you'll be treated to dinner at Albert Park's well-loved pizza joint Italian Artisans. Expect a drink on arrival (spritz, beer or vino) followed by antipasto platters, mains (expect lots of pizza) and endless pours of wine. Geeky film chat with your fellow VIPs is encouraged. Once you've finished wining and dining, you'll be picked up and whisked away to Chapel Street's much-loved hidden speakeasy, Promise Bar, for a pre-film tipple at 8pm.

Then, you'll be taking a (very) short stroll down to the plush Palace Cinema Como to watch the movie at 8.50pm. Movie snacks (a drink and a popcorn) will be there for you to enjoy — if you're not too full from dinner, that is.

For a little taste of what to expect from Bangla, check out the trailer below.
