Ladies’ night glamour at The Roxy’s Heels & Reels

Ladies’ night glamour at The Roxy’s Heels & Reels

Tonight The Roxy Cinema will hold its first Heels & Reels event; a chance for Wellington women to enjoy a night of “glitz and glamour” with cocktails, canapés, and a classic ‘chick flick’.

Tickets have almost sold out for the first Heels & Reels, which will screen Sixteen Candles, the 1984 classic directed by John Hughes, and starring Molly Ringwald, and Anthony Michael Hall.

The evening kicks off at 7.30pm in The Roxy’s Grand Lobby with shared canapés, an ’80s-inspired cocktail, and some surprise treats, before the film screens at 8.30pm.

Local businesses Exodus Health and Fitness Club, LUSH Cosmetics, and Mojo Coffee have donated spot prizes for the event, while oob has provided organic icecream for the screening.

Heels & Reels is The Roxy’s newest regular event, and will occur monthly. Future Heels & Reels films include Pretty Woman, Dirty Dancing, and Ghost.

Next month’s Heels & Reels event will feature as part of The Roxy Cinema’s Classic Film Festival, with Breakfast at Tiffany’s screening on Thursday 4 April. Coco at the Roxy restaurant is putting on ‘high society’ canapés for the event including mini prawn cocktails, silver dollar hamburgers, and melon balls filled with sherbet, reminiscent of the era.

“Heels & Reels offers Wellington women the chance to enjoy the glitz and glamour of the movies, with a fun-filled night out at The Roxy. Our first session has been really well received and tickets are selling out. It’s going to be a great night, and a fabulous monthly event for women to include in their calendars,” says Caroline Arapoff, Events Manager at The Roxy Cinema.
