Treats, product give-aways and lucky draws will be the order of the evening in the various cinema foyers before the movie screens from 20:00. Get in the mood with a delicious glass of Amarula, or check out the latest make–up and perfume tips and advice. You can also enjoy a de-stressing hand, neck, back, shoulder or head massage from the pop-up spa area before the movie starts, or find out how to get into shape as spring approaches! A welcome addition to the pamper sessions are the pop-up nail bars at select cinemas for a quick nail make-over. (Activations and products may differ at each cinema.)

To be part of this pleasurable night, all you have to do is book your tickets now for the Girlfriends’ Getaway pre-screening of Bad Moms on 17 August. Screenings take place in Ster-Kinekor cinemas and select Cine Prestige theatres at the designated complexes.

So, why not upgrade your night out with your besties and enjoy a luxurious Cine Prestige experience at one of the following Ster-Kinekor sites: Cavendish in Cape Town, Baywest Mall in Port Elizabeth, Gateway in Durban, The Zone and Eastgate in Johannesburg, Mall of Africa in Midrand, Cradlestone Mall in Krugersdorp and The Grove Mall in Pretoria.

In the Bad Moms comedy, from the writers of The Hangover, Amy Mitchell (Mila Kunis) has a seemingly perfect life: a great marriage, over-achieving kids, a beautiful home and a career. However, she’s over-worked, over-committed and exhausted to the point where she is about to snap.

Fed up, she joins forces with two other over-stressed moms, Kiki and Carla, on a quest to liberate themselves from conventional responsibilities – by going on a wild, un-mom-like binge of long overdue freedom, fun and self-indulgence. This puts them on a collision course with PTA Queen Bee Gwendolyn and her clique of devoted, perfect moms, Vicky and Stacy.

Bad Moms is directed by Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, and also stars Annie Mumolo, Christina Applegate and Jada Pinkett Smith. The film has a running time of 1 hr and 41 mins, and it carries a 13 LND classification.

The film releases at Ster-Kinekor cinemas countrywide on Friday, 19 August.
