Image description: The heading reads ‘The Mix’s movie night!’, and there is text below that reads ‘Join us for one of our fantastic movie nights! Connect with new friends and get a free movie pack with cosy socks, hot chocolate, popcorn and more!’ And text below that reads ‘Don’t midd out on the fun!’.

In the top right hand corner is a drawing of a film video camera, in the centre, a drawing of a moon and 5 stars, and to the left, a drawing of some popcorn.

In the bottom left hand corner is a logo that reads ‘Here4You’, and to the right a logo that reads ‘The Mix’.

Do you love films?

We have some exciting news...we're going to be running not one...but two movie nights later this month! 🎥

For these movie nights you will also receive a free movie pack with cosy socks, hot chocolate, popcorn and more! Don't miss out on the fun!

When are the movie nights happening?
:star:Thursday 25 January 2024 (6-8pm)
Come along and watch Grease! A musical about teens in love in the 1950s starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John.

:star:Friday 26 January 2024 (6-8pm)
Here 4 You hosted by Roman Kemp shines a light on the importance of looking after our mental health and signposts to help available to support young people.

How will the movie night work?
A few days before the movie night, you’ll receive an email with instructions on how to stream the film and join our group chat room where we can all text chat together while watching the film at the same time.

The films will be shown on channel 4 or another platform that is free to register on (no subscription set up needed).

For the movie packs, these will be limited to one per person for both movie nights.

How do I sign up?
If you'd like to come along to a movie night (or both!), sign up using this link - https://forms.office.com/e/S0wbgZARuD

We can’t wait to see you there!
Maybe somethings don't get better, but we do. We get stronger. We learn to live with our situations as messy and ugly as they are. We fix what we can and we adapt to what we can't. Maybe some of us will never fully be okay, but at least we're here. We're still trying. We're doing the best we can. That's worth celebrating too ❤

    I`d love to be able to come along to the one on the 25th but I have a school trip and I won`t be back until at least 6:30pm (probably closer to 7pm.)

    The film depicts the lives of greaser Danny Zuko (John Travolta) and Australian transfer student Sandy Olsson (Olivia Newton-John), who develop an attraction for each other during a summer romance.

    It's so lovely to hear you're all excited for the movie nights!

    There will indeed be a free movie pack posted out to anyone that signs up!

    @Amy22 I'll chat to the team that hold The Mix merch and see if we can add something in. The Mix merch is awesome!

    If anyone would like the movie pack to be anonymous and not mention it's come from The Mix, do let us know. We'll make sure to drop you a message to confirm before posting anything out :)

    @Dancer you're still very welcome to come along, Grease is almost 2 hours long so you could join when you're back home? We can let you know where we're up to in the film so you watch at the same time. :)

    @Chloe234 no need to complete the form twice, we'll add you to the list for both evenings :)

    I haven't signed up but I am having the same dilema with the address bit too. Would we need to include house number and postcode etc ?

    @River and @Amy22, thank you for signing up :)

    For your address, including your house number, street name, country and postcode would be great thank you. We will make sure to delete your address from our records once we've shipped the movie packs to you. We'll drop you both a DM from The Mix account :)

    Just to mention for the movie packs, at the moment these will be limited to one per person rather than two being sent for each night. We'll make sure to check final numbers closer to the time and if there's any extra popcorn, sweets and chocolate we'll add these in for you :)

    We hope to see you for another movie night in the future @JJLemon18 :)

    This is all part of a new campaign we are part of called Here4You. We've just posted a thread with more details about this campaign. It's really lovely for The Mix to be involved :)
