Werribee, Melbourne, Victoria: Australian's Kicking Off Outdoor Movie Screenings with New Moon
TWILIGHT cinema is coming to Werribee, starting with the largest screening in Australia of teen vampire movie The Twilight Saga: New Moon. Regent Cinemas Werribee and Parks Victoria will this month launch a season of outdoor movie screenings at Werribee Park.
The first, The Twilight Saga: New Moon, will be beamed onto a big screen for 2000 people in the park's formal gardens, in front of the mansion, at 12.01am on November 19. Regent Cinemas Werribee general manager Andrew Taylor said it would be the largest single screening of the movie in Australia. Ticket sales had been unprecedented, he said.
The Twilight Saga: New Moon has been adapted from the novel New Moon, by US author Stephanie Meyer. The novel is part of Meyer's Twilight series of four books, which follow a teenager who unwittingly falls in love with a handsome and mysterious vampire. As part of New Moon's world wide launch, a special encore performance of the first movie in the series, Twilight, will screen from 9pm (November 18) at the park.
Tickets are $5 for Twilight and $15 for the new movie. Gates open from 7.30pm. Bring your own chairs and picnic blankets. Food and drinks (non-alcoholic), as well as Twilight merchandise, will be on sale. Other movies to be screened at the park this year are Michael Jackson's This is it, on November 21, and Fame, on December 5. It is the first time Regent has screened movies at the Parks Victoria site.
