See the Xbox E3 keynote and Solo in Gold Class luxury for just $20

Brodie Fogg 30 May 2018 NEWS

I've got a really good feeling about this.

Have you been counting the sleeps until E3 and silently wishing you were there to revel in the joy? Is it possible you've been holding out on Han, waiting to see Solo in the perfect setting? And lastly, are you the altruistic sort who loves to help out a good cause when the opportunity presents itself?

Well, if you fit that incredibly specific, but not-so-niche criteria, do we have some great news for you.

Xbox ANZ is replicating that E3 atmosphere as best it can from halfway across the world with its outstanding Xbox GrE3n Carpet event.

For the dirt-cheap price of $20, fans can watch the Xbox E3 keynote live from the comfort of Hoyts Gold Class cinema (and yes, breakfast will be included). What better way to celebrate than surrounded by like-minded fans? But that's just the beginning. Attendees will also have the chance to win a variety of prizes (the most exciting being an Xbox One X, of course) and will top the event off with a screening of Solo: A Star Wars Story.

All up, it's around $100 worth of value for just $20. Not bad. However, the best part is the fact that all proceeds from the day go towards the CREATE Foundation, a national body representing young folks in out-of-home care (like kinship, foster and residential care).

The event will run on 11 June, kicking off at (brace yourself) 5:30am and running to 11:30am. Also note: 11 June is a public holiday in Australia (cheers, Queeny).

Across Australia and New Zealand, there are five Gold Class cinemas participating in the fun and tickets are available through Eventbrite (we've included links below).

If you're interested (and why wouldn't you be?), I'd suggest jumping in fast. At that price, tickets are bound to sell fast.

And if the 5:30am start is too early to fathom, think about how much more exciting the keynote will be when you're loaded up on bulk Gold Class coffee.
