The TCM Classic Film Tour NYC Ticket Giveaway
We’re giving away THREE PAIRS of Tickets in Nov and Dec!
“New York, New York, It’s a Wonderful Town”
We are VERY EXCITED to announce our longterm partnership with NYC’s On Location Tours, the Concierge Choice Award Winner for Sightseeing and Tours, and the operator of the fabulous TCM Classic Film Tour of NYC!
To kick things off, we have a very special contest giveaway to announce today – CMH will be giving away THREE PAIRS of Tickets to hop on board the TCM Classic Film Tour. So, if you live in NYC, or if you’re planning to visit NYC over the next few months, please feel free to enter. Our lucky winners will be able to pick the day of their preferred tour and work directly with On Location Tours to book it.
I took the tour a few years ago, and loved it (and honestly can’t wait to try it again). If you’d like to read my review, click here, as it’ll explain much more in depth about what the tour covers – and it does cover a lot. PS: I love the fact that they show you video clips on the bus of the exact sites you’re visiting and/or passing by.
In a nutshell, you’ll traverse the city, seeing over 60 filming locations and stopping for photo opps at some very iconic places, including Holly Golightly’s brownstone (Breakfast at Tiffany’s), the gothic Dakota apartment building (Rosemary’s Baby), the famous Seven Year Itch subway grate (which I walked over hundreds of times and never even knew it was there!), and, if you’re a fan of the ‘newer’ classics — the “I’ll have what she’s having” deli aka Zabar’s (from When Harry Met Sally).
In order to qualify to win a pair of tickets for the TCM Classic Film Tour via this contest giveaway, you must complete the below entry task by Saturday, December 29th at 9PM EST. However, the sooner you enter, the better chance you have of winning, because we will pick a winner on three different days within the contest period, via random drawings, as listed below… So if you don’t win the first week that you enter, you will still be eligible to win during the following weeks until the contest is over.
- Dec 1: One Winner (wins one pair of tickets)
- Dec 15: One Winner (wins one pair of tickets)
- Dec 29: One Winner (wins one pair of tickets)
We will announce each week’s winner on Twitter @ClassicMovieHub (or this blog, depending how you entered), the day after each winner is picked at 9PM EST — for example, we will announce our first week’s winners on Sunday Dec 2 around 9PM EST.
ENTRY TASK (2-parts) to be completed by December 29 at 9PM EST — BUT remember, the sooner you enter, the more chances you have to win…
