Thurman offers Pulp Fiction event

Uma Thurman is bringing Pulp Fiction back to life for one lucky fan and their close friends.

The actress, who won a supporting actress Oscar for her portrayal of Mia Wallace in Quentin Tarantino's 1994 cult classic, is auctioning off a special night to watch a private screening of the film, followed by a Q and A session and cocktails with her in honour of the film's 20th anniversary.

The idea came about after she revisited the film at this year's Cannes Film Festival alongside the director and some cast members, reported Variety.

"Seeing Pulp Fiction again after more than a decade, projected on the beach of Cannes to a captive audience, I was amazed and reminded of just how eternal the film really is," she said.

The screening, which will allow the winner to bring along 55 friends, will be held on September 14 at NeueHouse in New York City.

Proceeds from the auction will support the Room To Grow organisation, which Uma has been involved with since it was founded in 1998. The charity aims to help enrich the first three years of the lives of babies born into poverty.

"I am so happy to share the film again, in a personal way, and to see the film do some real good for babies in need," the actress said.

So far, the auction has attracted four bids, with the current bid at 8,500 US dollars. It ends on July 23.
