The Wolverine Asia Premiere in Seoul, South Korea with GV Movie Club

Do you know that cinema operator, GV runs a GV Movie Club that has over 540,000 registered members? Singapore’s current population stands at 5.8 million. That is almost 10% of our total population – which means 1 in 10 residents in Singapore is a GV Movie Club member!

Why do so many people signed up?

Three simple reasons:

1. Membership is FREE
2. Singaporeans love watching movies
3. There are lots of amazing perks available

One of the most popular benefits for member is that you get to buy movie tickets from GV cinemas at a discounted rate of S$6.50 every Tuesday. The most popular privilege is for the gala premiere and preview screenings tickets giveaway via the GV Movie Club facebook page.

GV Movie Club was first launched on 1 September 2007. The icon/mascot for GV Movie Club is know as Mr Popcorn and looks like this:

Through the GV Movie Club, members get first hand insider news and information on all great movie deals from GV and invitation to exclusive GV events. These events include movie parties, special promotions, free movie tickets and invitation to movie premieres. Visit the official GV Movie Club website for more details.

Just last week, GV Movie Club rewarded 5 lucky winners to a 3D3N trip to Seoul, South Korea to attend the Asia Premiere of the anticipated superhero movie, The Wolverine. This was made possible in partnership with Scoot Airline and Twentieth Century Fox.

Each of the winner won the following from GV Movie Club:

– A pair of Scoot return tickets to Seoul so the winner can each bring a partner along
– Two exclusive tickets to The Woverine Fans Screening in Seoul, with Hugh Jackman
– Two Wolverine Fans Screening Goodie Bags, inclusive of a limited edition The Woverine t-shirt to wear at the Fans Screening
– 3 nights stay at a 5-star hotel in Seoul (Oakwood Premiere Coex Centre)
– Return airport transfer for two

Envious?

The 5 lucky winners were selected by winning an exclusive contest open only for GV Movie Club members. You could have been one of the winners if you join GV Movie Club. Sign up now via the official website if you are not a member yet.

The winners got to meet Hugh Jackman in person!

This is a priceless experience that you cannot put dollars and cents to. I was at the fans meet in Seoul too. Hugh Jackman is a really friendly guy and he autographed at least one item for all the ten people in the GV Movie Club entourage. He signed my fan meet pass for me.

Some even got to take close-up photos together with him. Check out these pictures I took at the fan meet:
