Time to have a film revelation with a spontaneous staycation.

It’s that time of year again where heading to the cinema or having a slow food marathon in an icy cool air-conditioned room makes perfect sense to escape the blistering summer heat.

So why not make a spontaneous staycation out of it? You know, a cheeky early Christmas gift to yours truly?

In celebration of the Revelation Perth International Film Festival kicking off today, we show you how to indulge in the simple things in life in and around Perth – watching a good flick, eating top-notch food and getting a good night’s rest – all in cool comforts.

After the year we have all had, you know you have earned it.

Eat – Julio’s

Film, Feast & City Sleep: The Ultimate Revelation Film Festival Staycation

Sure, we can’t exactly go to the land of carb pleasures pasta and pizza, but we can take our fork to destination flavour.

Renowned restaurant Julio’s in West Perth does not disappoint when it comes to serving delicious authentic Italian cuisine. It’s the type of place where you need to become accustomed to being ‘Italian full’, that is, finding your extra stomach to overindulge in Italy’s good food life. Even traditional nonnas would feel like they have been transported back to the motherland via the palate with Julio’s home-made pastas and quality mains all carefully prepared by Italian executive chef Simone Ariano in elegant rustic surrounds.

Lucky for your extra stomach, Julio’s is offering Revelation Film Festival ticket holders 15% off the total bill for a pre or post-film feed. Present your festival pass or ticket when dining in for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Deal ends December 13, 2020. Conditions apply.

Location: Julio’s, 1309 Hay St, West Perth WA 6005
