Cou­ple in need to ben­e­fit from film

Auckland City Harbour News - - News -

Auck­lan­ders have the chance to check out the world’s lat­est cin­ema tech­nol­ogy and raise money for a good cause at the same time.

SkyC­ity Cin­e­mas and the Auck­land City Har­bour News are work­ing to­gether to raise money for Dean and Sacha Viall, a Mt Al­bert cou­ple whose world was turned up­side-down 14 months ago when Sacha con­tracted an in­fec­tion caused by a com­mon cold-sore virus, which lead to rare swelling in her brain.

Sacha is now in a wheel­chair fol­low­ing surgery to re­move part of her skull.

Dean was then made bank­rupt af­ter he gave up his job to care for his wife full­time.

SkyC­ity has gen­er­ously do­nated a cin­ema to screen Ice Age 3: Dawn of the Di­nosaurs in 3D, which show­cases state of the art Dolby 3D dig­i­tal tech­nol­ogy. It will be an ex­pe­ri­ence that will have pun­ters jump­ing out of their seats – lit­er­ally.

SkyC­ity Cin­e­mas gen­eral man­ager Jane Hast­ings says the com­pany is de­lighted to play a part in help­ing mem­bers of the com­mu­nity.

“It’s a priv­i­lege for us to be able to play our part and we look for­ward to pre­sent­ing a cheque to Mr and Mrs Viall that will help them through this time.”

The movie will be screened at 2pm on Au­gust 1, at SkyC­ity St Lukes Cin­ema.

Tick­ets are $20 which in­cludes a small coke and pop­corn. All pro­ceeds from ticket sales will go di­rectly to the cou­ple for on­go­ing ex­penses and med­i­cal costs.

To buy tick­ets to this spe­cial movie screen­ing visit the web­site www.skyc­i­tycin­e­mas. co.nz/viall or phone 3020002.

Fam­ily fun: See Ice Age 3: Dawn of the Di­nosaurs and raise money.
