Unwind with a drink or two while enjoying the immersive movie screening of 1984 held at the trendy Blu Jaz Cafe. Based on George Orwell’s classic novel, the thrilling drama film tells the story of a government employee living under an oppressive rule, who is involved in rewriting history in order to put his country in good light. While his only escape from the restraint is his love life, his relationship is frowned upon in the closely-monitored society. Tickets are priced at $9 per adult. Monday, 25th June.
