FREE Light Projection Show at the Roxy Cinema, 5 Park Road Miramar.

Middle Earth will be brought to life on the front of The Roxy building every night, as a state of the art projection show will play multiple times a night just after sunset FOR FREE. This will kick off on at 9pm on December 1st and finish on December 12th, as we count down to the NZ release of the film – The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. This amazing light show lasts 10-15 minutes and plays several times – so you can see it after a dinner or movie inside!

Showcasing the breath-taking special effects created by WETA Workshop and WETA Digital using sound and projection, the presentation follows the film’s characters and creatures on their adventures through the first two films leading up to the release of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. Bringing in a whole new era of animated entertainment in the friendly Wellington suburb of Miramar, and using the beautiful details of the Roxy facade as a canvas, you will be wowed.

This event is to celebrate the talent and the passion from all residents and workers on the Peninsula, as we bring the community together to begin the countdown. An occasion for friends, filmies and the whole family -the plaza will become your new favourite outdoor area, where you can enjoy drinks and nibbles from CoCo at The Roxy; as you watch the sun set and the story of The Hobbit rise on The Roxy Cinema.
An outdoor area with level cassette flooring, bean bags and astro turf, so you can get comfy!
