There is an Outdoor Cinema at Meredith, in a magical grove of manna gums, with the natural canopy high overhead just sparse enough for the twinkling stars to shine through. What shows? That would be stuff that turned left at the lights, planted the foot and ripped the rear view mirror off, and then ate it.
The Ecoplex Cinema sits at the edge of Bush Camping, in the area known as “Africa”. It consists of a large 6m x 6m screen purpose built between two ancient eucalypts, a six-speaker Super-Sonorama surround audio experience (which when coupled with Ultravision 3D effects and glasses REALLY puts you in the picture), and the action (or inaction) is projected by vintage 16mm gear out of a 1978 Jayco SuperTourer Caravan (with annex).
The Ecoplex runs basically all night, and is designed so you can drop in for a short or long while at any time – many of the films shown are indeed shorts so you don’t need to set your watch for the start of a feature.
Friday night: 9pm till late
Saturday night: 9pm till later
IN OPTICALLY ENHANCED ULTRAVISION!!!
Only ULTRAVISION with SUPER-SONORAMA provides you with that “you-are-in-the-middle-of-it-all” effect… Accept no substitutes! (not available in indoor hardtop-type cinemas – exclusive to the Meredith Ecoplex…)
We swim the sewers of cinema now-and-past, to salvage unfamiliar objects of wonder and delight. Join us at the Ecoplex as we celebrate both new and misremembered (and damn strange – of course) instruments of celluloid enchantment…
Roll yr peepers over the sandwich board at the Ecoplex caravan for more info and scheduled screening times…
