On the 40th anniversary from when Rocky first went the distance, guests gathered at the Tivoli theatre to enjoy Jameson, ginger and lime drinks with gourmet burgers before the interactive film screening began. The theatre was transformed to feature key locations from the film, such as Rocky’s bedroom and the boxing club, including a full size boxing ring. Throughout the movie, Rocky and Apollo appeared in the audience, acting out iconic scenes, and after the party continued in Jameson style with DJ Aidan Kelly on the decks playing music from the film’s era.
