Movies in the ‘starlight lounge’

LANDMARKS on either side of the Border will screen outdoor movies over the next two days.

Wodonga’s outdoor cinema has returned to Junction Place with its first movie tomorrow the children’s hit Wreck-It Ralph from 7.30pm.

Wreck-It Ralph is the first of four movies to be shown at the site, including a new non-family film on March 16.

Meanwhile, from 8pm tonight the Albury Botanic Gardens will present a screening of quirky New Zealand flick The Insatiable Moon as part of the council’s Cinema Under the Stars series.

The film earned male lead Rawiri Paratene the best actor award at the 2011 New Zealand Film and Television Awards and has been highly praised for being an uplifting and heartfelt story with incisive social commentary.

Albury council’s cultural development co-ordinator Narelle Vogel said it would be a rare chance for an Australian audience to catch The Insatiable Moon, which hasn’t been released commercially in Australia.

“It’s one for the film buffs, people who love quality storytelling and something a little quirky,” she said.

The Friends of the Botanic Gardens will be selling food as a fund-raiser.

Cinema Under the Stars will continue next week with a screening of Oscar-nominated Hugo, in Fredericks Park, on February 16.
