Moon­light Cin­ema warms up pro­jec­tor

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

THE count­down is on for the re­turn of the big screen to the great out­doors in Port Dou­glas.

The Opel Moon­light Cin­ema is set to once again trans­form QT Port Dou­glas into the ul­ti­mate out­door cin­ema ex­pe­ri­ence, show­cas­ing an ex­ten­sive sched­ule of the hottest new re­lease films from June 21 to Oc­to­ber 6.

The film sched­ule is brim­ming with the lat­est re­leases to en­ter­tain au­di­ences of all ages from Dis­ney Pixar’s Mon­sters Univer­sity, De­spi­ca­ble Me 2 and The Smurfs 2 to lat­est re­leases in­clud­ing The Great Gatsby, Iron Man 3, The Hang­over Part III, Star Trek Into Dark­ness and Man of Steel.

And its not just movies on the menu, with the tempt­ing food such as steamed Asian dumplings and clas­sic na­chos sure to sat­isfy the taste buds as well as a full bar on- site.

Moon­light Cin­ema’s Pa­trick Martin said this year they plan to add a spe­cial fea­ture to the bill.

‘‘We’re hop­ing to trial a few Mon­day or Tues­day night screen­ings through­out the sea­son,’’ he said.

‘‘This way, lo­cals who work in hos­pi­tal­ity over the week­end don’t miss out on ex­pe­ri­enc­ing the cin­ema.’’

The cin­ema also plans to screen games two and three of the State of Ori­gin and will again host fundraisers for wor­thy causes com­bined with spe­cial movie screen­ings.

The Moon­light Cin­ema will kick off with Mon­sters Univer­sity on June 21. Prices for the cin­ema are $16 for adults, $14 for a stu­dent, $12 for se­niors and chil­dren while com­fort­able bean beds are only an ex­tra $9 to hire.
