This morning I have received a newsletter from Air France, inviting me to be the first to see the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens in France, on December 16th! That would be two days before the opening in the US (in France movies open on Wednesdays).
Ok, it’s not exactly a free invitation, but more an information about their new promo “Flight & Cinema”.
Air France invites you to catch Star Wars: The Force Awakens on December 16th, in France! The movie will be shown in English. Be part of our journey! Together with our partner, EuropaCorp CINEMAS, we are offering YOU an exclusive “Flight & Cinema” package including your cinema ticket and a transfer from the airport to the movie theater. After flying with Air France to Paris-Charles de Gaulle, you will experience with EuropaCorp CINEMAS (designed by Luc Besson) the most high level technology a cinema can provide. With a 18 meters wide screen, 4K Dual Projection and a high 3D technology developed by Dolby as well as an immersive Dolby ATMOS sound with more than 40 surround speakers you will remember your movie experience for a lifetime! Book your flight tickets now and get your complimentary ride and movie ticket.
I think the idea is fun and smart enough to have people talk about it, even if at the end there might be only a handful of people ready to spend that much money just to see a movie.
Prices from Los Angeles starts in coach at $1500 (jet lag included) … not included, the hotel if you wish to stay a few days extra. Otherwise you will be on the next flight back home … and for that you really need the force to be with you!
