O'Cafe' to Introduce 3D Movie on Valentine's Night
By Denis Otim,
Gulu's O’ Café will this Valentine’s Day bring the first ever 3D romantic movie to Gulu.
Valentine’s Day is celebrated annually on February 14th. On the day, people exchange cards, candy, gifts or flowers with lovers, or valentine, as a sign of love.
In respect, O’café is organizing a series of events for couples and individuals in the region. Besides the 3D movie night, there will be a candle-lit dinner and silent disco.
The event will be hosted at Acholi Inn Gardens. Entrance fees will be 30,000 shillings for individuals and 55,000 shillings for couples.
O’ Café’s Executive Director, Paul Mutanga, said Uganda’s Saxophonist, David Olara will also perform at the event.
Mutanga said the special arrangement is aimed at giving couples the best valentine’s ever.
“We are giving people a three in one, or even four in one…everybody who will purchase a ticket will get a cocktail and mock tail, fresh roses for ladies, 3D glasses for watching movies and a silent disco headset,” Mutanga said.
He said the title of the movie would be revealed on the Valentine’s Day, to create an element of surprise to the revelers.
The movies will play in two channels, one in the English and another in Luo, thereafter, merrymakers will dance to silent disco.
Mutanga said the silent disco channels have been coded, Blue, Red, Green and couples will be free to choose which color. Dressing code is not restricted to black and red like always.
“We have four deejays who will select songs for couples; it’s going to be a mash up because two Deejays will come from Kampala while two are home based,” Mutanga said.
He added that plans are underway to make the silent disco a monthly occurrence.
“I want to change the mindset that the region is dead and buried, and nothing good comes from it.”
“There will be a bit of change and cultural shock and we are ready to take it on with dignity,” Mutanga said.
