St. Paul-raised writer F. Scott Fitzgerald is a local star, known for a number of great works—the most notable being The Great Gatsby. The story has it all: love, lust, and jazz music in the Big Apple, so it’s no wonder the movie based on his novel is garnering so much attention.
For those of you who haven’t read the classic 1920’s story, here’s a quick rundown.
Nick Carraway (played by Tobey Maguire) is a starving writer who moves to New York City in 1922 to find work. Before achieving the Great American Dream, Carraway befriends his neighbor, a mysterious yet popular partier, Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio). The world of the lavishly rich and morally loose intrigues Carraway as he hangs out with his cousin, Daisy (Carey Mulligan), her blue-collar husband, Tom (Joel Edgerton), and Gatsby.
As exciting as The Great Gatsby on the big screen is, here’s something to make it even better: You have a chance to win one of 25 pairs of tickets to a special pre-screening of the movie in the VIP Auditorium at the theaters at MOA—three days before the rest of the world will be graced with director Baz Luhrmann’s beautiful 1920s scene on May 10. Just register with GoFobo online for a chance to win and you could wine and dine in the VIP 21+ theater.
One grand prize winner will also receive a makeover for two by MAC, done prior to the screening!
Winners will be notified on Friday, May 3. Era-inspired outfits and Flapper dress encouraged.
