Nu Metro Cinemas has joined forces with Geexpo for a once-in-a-lifetime 3-city event aimed at gamers, comic book fans, cinema fanatics and ‘cosplay’ aficionados in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban on Saturday, 4 June 2016. These striking events are in honour of WARCRAFT – the new movie based on the massively popular, cult video game (and book series) of the same name – which will hit Nu Metro Cinemas nationwide from Friday, 10 June 2016.
The Geexpo WARCRAFT events will take place on Saturday, 4 June at Nu Metro Emperor’s Palace (Jhb), Nu Metro GrandWest Casino (CT) and Nu Metro The Pavilion (Dbn). Access to each event promises ticketholders a unique evening of myth, magic and epic adventure – amplifying the cinema release for this highly anticipated fantasy adventure. Each event will include a pre-release screening of the movie, complimentary coke & popcorn, a ‘cosplay’ competition, various other give-aways, lots of special goodies to make any Warcraft-fan swoon, a Hearthstone exhibition and lots more.
Two worlds. One destiny… In WARCRAFT, the peaceful realm of Azeroth stands on the brink of war as its civilisation faces a fearsome race of invaders: Orc warriors fleeing their dying home, intent on colonising another. As a portal opens to connect the worlds, one army faces destruction and the other faces extinction. From opposing sides, two heroes are set on a collision course that will decide the fate of their family, their people and their home. So begins a spectacular saga of power and sacrifice in which war has many faces, and everyone fights for something.
Join a legion of heroes with Nu Metro on 4 June – and experience WARCRAFT ahead of its release in local cinemas. Step inside Azeroth and experience all the mysteries that the World of Warcraft has to offer. Be sure to wear your carefully crafted Blizzard costume to stand a chance of winning incredible ‘cosplay’ prizes.
