TGV Cinemas recently rewarded lucky winners of the Maybank-IMAX Watch and Win Contest with exclusive 18-inch Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron figurines. Eight die-hard Avengers fans were presented with a limited edition figurine each at TGV Cinemas Sunway Pyramid’s Chill*X on 4 July 2015. Present to give out the prizes to the eight winners was Celeste Koay, Senior Marketing Manager of TGV Cinemas.
The contest which began at the end of April was aimed at rewarding superfans for watching the much anticipated blockbuster movie Avengers: Age of Ultron in Maybank-IMAX. In addition to rewarding fans of the superhero movie, Koay also added that the contest was also another platform to encourage movie lovers to enjoy their favourite movies in IMAX. “Watching a movie in IMAX provides movie-goers with an unparalleled and immersive audio and visual movie experience, which is the best way to enjoy such big budget action-packed movies,” Koay elaborated.
“We received more than 1,500 entries and are so overwhelmed by the number of the superfans that took part! We want to thank and congratulate all the superhero fans and movie lovers for taking part in this contest and hope to be able to organise more of such contest to make our customers’ cinema experience with TGV Cinemas more exciting,” said Koay.
Chin Kok Hoe who took home the limited edition 18” Captain America figurine said that he had watched the movie few times and was just so blown away by the IMAX 3D experience. Hoe and his family are fans of the IMAX experience and when possible, always opt to enjoy their movies in TGV Cinemas’ Maybank-IMAX halls.
Another winner, Chin Hui Min shared that she has been a fan of the Avengers since the first instalment was released and was excited to participate so she could take home one of the figurines. “This is totally cool and I would like to thank TGV Cinemas for organising this contest,” said Min.
To participate, movie lovers were required to firstly watch the movie Avengers: Age or Ultron in TGV Cinemas Maybank-IMAX halls and secondly to answer ten questions related to the movie on TGV Cinemas’ website. The 18” figurines were created specifically for this contest and have been on display in TGV Cinemas Sunway Pyramid since the movie hit the cinemas and now, finally they have a home. As part of the prize giving ceremony, TGV Cinemas also organised “Majlis Buka Puasa” with the winners and guests.
