BRACE yourself ladies, Magic Mike is returning to the big screen.

On Wednesday, July 9, the 2012 film that blitzed the box office and set pulses racing will feature as the main attraction for Event Cinemas Liverpool's monthly Chicks At The Flicks night.

The film starts barely dressed crowd-pleasers Channing Tatum and Matthew McConaughey. It grossed more than $167 million, far exceeding box office expectations.

The film also earned a swag of illustrious award nominations, including Best Shirtless Performance at the 2012 MTV Movie Awards.

Magic Mike is loosely based on Tatum's short-lived career as a stripper in Florida.

It traces the rise of Adam, a 19-year-old rookie performer in a male revue, guided by the watchful eye of Mike [Tatum], a veteran with six years' experience under his rarely worn belt.

When Mike's fantasy life starts to affect his reality, he revives long-delayed plans for the future.

Chicks At The Flicks offers the perfect refuge for ladies looking to avoid having to sit through Origin III.

The film will screen at 7pm and pre-event activities will get under way from 6pm. There will be a range of "girly" stalls and lucky door prizes.

All Chicks At The Flicks guests will receive a goodie bag brimming with food samples and beauty products.
