Write an Essay, Win a Movie Theatre

Write an Essay, Win a Movie Theatre

Are you a lover of both film and the written word? If you answered yes, you should think about entering an essay contest that promises to award its winner the deed to a movie theatre, reports Mental Floss.

The 98-year-old historic building in Houlton, Maine can be yours for the price of 250 words and a $100 entry fee—well under the marked value of $350,000. Submissions will be judged by owner Mike Hurley based on “writing structure, content, quality of expression, [and] creativity,” and should provide a persuasive argument as to why you think you should be the new proprietor of the establishment.

To learn more about the contest, visit the Temple Theatre’s website here. But enter quickly, because the January 31st deadline is fast approaching!
