For the first time in Australia and New Zealand, Doctor Who fans will be able to see two high definition episodes of Doctor Who on the big screen, in a special cinema event as part of the celebrations for the Doctor Who 50th anniversary year.
For one night only on Thursday 14 March at 7pm, fans can experience Eleventh Doctor adventures The Impossible Astronaut and Day of the Moon from Series 6 in HD, which introduced the newest monster created by series executive producer and showrunner Steven Moffat – the Silence. Screened in Australia and New Zealand, this will be a world-first multiple cinema screening for Doctor Who.
Taking place at select Event Cinemas, Greater Union and Birch Carroll & Coyle Cinemas, and Village Cinemas across Australia and Event Cinemas in NZ, there will be a ‘best dressed’ prize at each cinema for the Doctor Who fan with the most impressive costume, from Time Lords to Monsters. More details can be found on participating cinema websites.
Says Sharon Wilson, BBC Worldwide Australasia’s Head of Marketing for Global Brands: “It’s an opportunity for fans to enjoy the programmes and participate in the whole experience in a way that they’ve not been able to before. We hope this will be the start of more BBC Worldwide cinema events with our partners Event Cinemas and Village Cinemas. ‘
