Every monday night from 8pm, The Soda Factory offers large comfy couches, a wide screen projection screen, and cups of salty popcorn, the three essential things for a cosy movie night.
The Soda Factory opened at the end of February last year on Wentworth Avenue, offering a range of special offers everyday. Movie Mondays were on our cards this week and enjoy with free popcorn.
There isn’t a clear sign when looking for the bar so look out for the bright red ‘Bobby’s Boss Dogs’. It’ll get you in the American mood with those stripey colours.
Then, open the Coke machine with the coke bottle door handle to literally enter the Soda Factory. There’s actually another door but.. *surprise*!
It actually does not look like a literal Soda Factory with machines piping out soda drinks. Instead, it’s just a cute little bar with a slight 1920s feel.
Although there are displays of bottles around the bar and Coca Cola signs too.
The wooden stools and tables behind the cocktail bar give it a vintage feel. It was pretty funny because this elderly group actually came in towards the end of the movie and then came out. I’m sure they would’ve loved the old school vibe. Too bad the movie was in its finishing stages.
Audrey Hepburn and a white scooter were on display. Can I please ride it?
A few weeks ago they also changed the menu. They’re usually know for their $1 hotdogs on Tuesdays but maybe next time I’ll try it out. What is a Cheese Burger Spring Roll? or Chicken Waffle with maple syrup? Interesting…
To be honest, there weren’t a lot of people. Maybe around 20? I’m not the best head counter but it was nice because I could see the screen without taller people sitting in front of me!
The popcorn got passed around 15 minutes after ‘Big Trouble in Little China’ started.
It was extremely salty. I was trying to shake all the salt off but I guess they’d want to encourage us to buy drinks, right?
Oh, the movie was such a trashy movie but endlessly hilarious. I’m not sure either I liked it or not. I know in previous months they’ve had fundraiser events, particularly for ‘Movember’.
Twas nice to chill and watch a movie with friends!
Review Rating: =D =) =| =(
Product (Movie Mondays at The Soda Factory): =)
Would I go to Movie Mondays at The Soda Factory again? Yes indeed! In fact, my friends and I want to go in 2 weeks! We’ll have to check the movie on Rotten Tomatoes though.
Would I donate the money I saved to a charity? Knowing that this was a fundraising opportunity in previous months, a gold coin donation wouldn’t be too bad.
Higlight: sinking into the couches and just sitting back. Working full time hours is quite tiring and even though Monday is the start of the week, it’s just nice and refreshing to have a drink or two whilst watching a random movie. I also liked how they started on time. So many places say that’ll do something but wouldn’t start until 30 minutes later.
Suggestion of Improvement: Less salt on the popcorn please! It was just too much. Also, a brief synopsis of the movie would be great on the website, including year it was made, actors, etc would be helpful!
Ends: never. It’s every Monday.
