Movie haikus = win!

Share us!

In case you haven’t heard, a new kind of movie technology has hit Edmonton’s silver screens. And they call it…


Last week, I received an email from Shannon Hunter, an account coordinator with Cloud AdAgents, a group representing Cineplex. Seems the movie-house company implemented a new kind of movie-watching technology (which Allie’s posted about on her blog) and they want to get the word out using social media peeps like us.

From Allie’s blog post:

UltraAVX features a large format wall to wall movie screen, allowing for a great image from wherever the vantage point (although I wouldn’t suggest sitting too close to the front or on the extreme sides). The theatre boasts dolby digital surround sound which made me feel immersed within the sound which was a neat experience.

Now, I’m all for getting the word out. And any opportunity we have to give our readers free stuff is always a plus. (We know you don’t come here just for our epic word-play, after all). Cloud has given us a whole bunch of Ultra AVX passes that expire on Halloween. And we want to give them away… IN PAIRS.

Just like what Noah did when he sold of pieces of his famous ark. Or at least, that’s how I remember it.

So! If you want to enter this here contest to win some passes to Cineplex’s new Ultra AVX theatre (at either South Common or North Common), all you have to do is leave us a comment with your VERY BEST Halloween/scary-movie-themed haiku. Par l’example:

Ripley loves children
But no love for Synthetics
Also Facehuggers

See how easy that was? Haikus have 5 syllables on the first and third lines and 7 on the second.

Leave a comment with a valid email address and YOUR movie haiku. You can enter as many times as you like, but if we like three of your haikus, you only win once. Submit your haikus by Sunday at noon and we’ll announce the winners on Monday morning!

    Spooky rhymes are cool
    But sometimes they don’t make sense
