I have been excited from the very moment it was announced that Beauty and the Beast was coming to life. Each trailer, sneak peak and photo that is released just makes me more anxious for the movie to come to life!
Lucky for you, we're hosting an Advanced Screening of Beauty and the Beast four days before it's released to the public!
“Beauty and the Beast” is the fantastic journey of Belle, a bright, beautiful and independent young woman who is taken prisoner by a Beast in his castle. Despite her fears, she befriends the castle’s enchanted staff and learns to look beyond the Beast’s hideous exterior and realize the kind heart of the true Prince within.
The film stars: Emma Watson as Belle; Dan Stevens as the Beast; Luke Evans as Gaston, the handsome, but shallow villager who woos Belle; Kevin Kline as Maurice, Belle’s father; Josh Gad as LeFou, Gaston’s long-suffering aide-de-camp; Ewan McGregor as Lumière, the candelabra; Stanley Tucci as Maestro Cadenza, the harpsichord; Audra McDonald as Madame de Garderobe, the wardrobe; Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Plumette, the feather duster; Hattie Morahan as the enchantress; and Nathan Mack as Chip, the teacup; with Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, the mantel clock; and Emma Thompson as the teapot, Mrs. Potts.
Enter to win!
The advanced screening is being held on March 13th at 7pm. These events are typically overbooked so please plan to arrive early to ensure you have a seat. Seats are NOT reserved and are first come first served.

Epicenter is the heart of Charlotte. There is Alive After Five every Thursday during the summer, Dale Earnhardt Jr’s hot night club Whiskey River, the Premier movie theater Studio Movie Grill and my favorite, Blackfinn AmeriPub.
Our August Girls Night Out event is going to be located in the heartbeat of Uptown and Blackfinn invited me out for a night out to sample their menu. Not to mention, they gave me a sweet gift to give to one of you!
Starting off our night we vowed to only order Blackfinn Favorites and it was the best decision. First decision: Drinks. Now, I love anything mango flavored and my eyes immediately went to the Mango Sunrise while my boyfriend chose the Blackfinn Iced Tea. Both were phenomenal choices. Then the Blackened Brie and knew we had to start with that. It immediately reminded me of England so I had to give it a try. The brie served warm with ciabatta toast, sliced apples and apricot cranberry chutney was decedent.
For our main course we grabbed a dish of Jambalaya Pasta and the T-Bird. The jambalaya shrimp, chicken, andouille sausage, peppers and onions in a tomato broth with angel hair pasta while the t-bird is Blackfinn's secret recipe turkey burger topped with chive aioli, chopped bacon, lettuce and tomato. Before we knew it, both dishes were scrapped clean.
I hate that we were so full once we were done. I had eyed their Blackfinn Hot Chocolate dessert all night. I love anything oeey gooey chocolate filled desserts.
We loved our dinner at Blackfinn and we want YOU to enjoy a night out too. We have a $50 gift card up for grabs! Enter through RaffleCopter and if you finish all the steps, you have multiple chances to win!
Contest ends Monday August 15th at midnight. Winner will be selected at 10am Tuesday August 16th.
