If you're feeling your caffeine high starting to wane at the beginning of the work week, the Valley Art Theatre is giving an advanced, free screening of "Monsters" tonight and is hosting the Phoenix launch of UK energy drink, "Relentless."
Should be fun if you can hold still in your seat for two hours after downing one of the 16-ounce cans (check out the drink rundown on our foodie sister blog, Chow Bella).
More on "Monsters" and Relentless after the jump...
To go, you need to RSVP in advance, but space is still limited, so going early to the event is recommended.
Possibly the only energy drink marketed to creative types (despite what looks like Ed Hardy-inspired lettering on the can), the screening is part of a series across the U.S. promoting Relentless' launch.
"We're not trying to shove the brand in your face," says Andy Lowe, a promoter for the event.
Still, sci-fi horror thriller "Monsters," a movie about aliens crashing in Central America, sounds about as in-your-face as it gets. Written and directed by Gareth Edwards, it follows an American journalist escorting a tourist through an alien-quarantined Mexico. Maybe they could use some energy...
Doors open for the event at 7 p.m. and the screening begins at 8 p.m. at Valley Art Theatre, 509 South Mill Ave., Tempe.
