Starz Entertainment Group LLC and Cox Communications Inc. want you to “Live Like a Movie Star.”

The programmer and the MSO Tuesday announced the “Starz! Live Like a Movie Star Sweepstakes,” open to residents of participating Cox systems through April 30.

The grand prize is a trip that will bring the winner and a guest coast-to-coast with stops in Miami, New York, Los Angeles and Las Vegas.

At each destination, the winner will live like a movie star with lavish spa treatments; a shopping trip with a personal shopper at the trendiest stores in Los Angeles; VIP admission to a "hot" Vegas nightclub; VIP tickets to Dame Edna, Back with a Vengeance! on Broadway and dinner at Tavern on the Green; and more.

Additionally, 16 other winners will receive one year's worth of movie-admission certificates.

“We are happy to give Cox subscribers an opportunity to enjoy our blockbuster hits with the added incentive of winning the trip of a lifetime," Starz Entertainment Group vice president of affiliate sales Christine Carrier said in a prepared statement.

“The Starz! Live Like a Movie Star Sweepstakes has a phenomenal grand prize that any movie lover would appreciate -- living the extravagant celebrity lifestyle for a week of indulgence in some of the hippest locales in the United States,” she added.
