March Movie Madness

Win movie tickets to Wallingford Holiday Cinema and help us choose the next movies to add to our Binge Boxes!

Last summer we launched our Binge Box collection with five movies packaged in each box, ready to binge watch. Our Binge Boxes include movies in particular genres, created by certain directors, or movies in a series.

The Binge Boxes are so popular we want to add to the collection! We asked you what some of your favorite movies are and selected titles that we don’t currently have in our Binge Boxes. To decide which new boxes to create, all the titles will be competing in our March Movie Madness competition.

Here’s How It Works:

In February —
Fill in a March Movie Madness bracket with your predictions of which film will win against each other and submit it to the library before February 28th. Don’t forget to include a winner!

In March —
Each day in March, vote for your favorite films in match-ups posted on our Facebook and Twitter pages. The winning film of each match will move onto the next round.

Outcome —
Everyone who correctly predicts the final outcome will be put in a drawing to win movie tickets to Wallingford Holiday Cinema. The Final Four films will also be used to create four new thematic Binge Boxes.
