Wagga Wagga, Australia: "Dive-In Movies" Give Way to Outdoor "Movies by Moonlight"

WHILE the last of the Dive-in movies at the Oasis Regional Aquatic Centre came to a close at the weekend, there is still an outdoor movie experience available to residents with the Movies by Moonlight at the music bowl. For the past month residents were able to experience the city's first-ever Dive-in Movie screenings at the Oasis for four consecutive weeks. Each different film brought with it new crowds of families and children keen for a swim or a float while enjoying a children's movie. The cool comfort of the pool was a haven for some families escaping the 40-degree heat of recent weeks. The 50-metre pool and the surrounding area was transformed into an outside cinema with customary mats and tubes for comfortable viewing. The four movies that played were Finding Nemo, Toy Story, Ghost Busters and Surf's Up. With the ending of summer movie series comes another month-long movie experience, with Movies by Moonlight at the Wagga Music Bowl. The hit musical, Mamma Mia! launched the Movies by Moonlight series on Saturday, January 23, and a host of popular movies have been secured for the Saturday night summer series which runs until the end of February. The movies aren't only directed to a young audience, with box office blockbusters Australia and Twilight and classic musicals including The Sound of Music, The Wizard of Oz and Priscilla Queen of the Desert making the list. Movies by Moonlight director, Matthew Canny, said he was hoping record crowds would attend the 2010 season.
