Excitement is building for the opening of the Yarrawonga Mulwala Golf Club Resort Movie Theatre with plans to have the big screen lit up by September – if not sooner.RACHEAL WILLETT August 5, 2014 4:02pm
Work is underway to finalise the development, with luxury recliners on their way to Mulwala, along with state of the art projection equipment.
Once the final installation is complete and the movie session times locked in, club members and visitors alike will be welcomed into the state-of-the-art movie theatre for the latest in new release movies as well as movies from an extensive back catalogue.
The 62-seat cinema is not your average movie theatre – it provides a level of luxury over and above the norm and is expected to deliver an unparalleled viewing experience for movie lovers.
YMGCR Chief Executive Officer Richard Hogg said the theatrette development had been carefully managed, with improvements made all the way along, to ensure it met all expectations.
“We worked carefully to ensure we can offer the complete movie experience and that has meant taking a little extra time to get it right, such as the inclusion of a new toilet adjacent to the movie theatre complex,” he said.
“We’re confident the project will deliver everything we hoped it would and are keen to share it with our members and visitors.”
Originally it was planned all movie tickets would be purchased at club reception, and while that is still an option, the club has added the extra benefit of an online purchasing system.
“The online ticket system means people can use their computer or smartphone to check session times, see how many tickets are left, select their seats and purchase their tickets,” Mr Hogg said.
“That way they know their seat is reserved and they can simply arrive, enjoy a meal or a drink, and then head in to watch the movie.”
Apart from the movie theatre itself, YMGCR is creating a wine bar and lounge adjacent to the theatre, where guests can relax in a stylish setting – either before or after the movie, or at any time – and enjoy a drink or a cuppa overlooking the beautiful golf course.
Session times for the cinema are still being finalised with initial plans for an 11am session on Saturday, afternoon sessions (1.30pm) Monday through Sunday and 4.30pm sessions on Wednesday and Sunday. An earlier time may be scheduled following expressions of interest from parents before school pick up times.
There will be evening sessions at 7.30 on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday and on Friday and Saturday the option of a 6.30pm session and 9.15pm session.
