CAPE MENTELLE TWILIGHT MOVIES, SUMMER 2010
Margaret River in Western Australia is rightly famous for its wines, but Cape
Mentelle vineyards is adding a new attraction to its vineyards with a season of
seven carefully selected movies (assisted by Urban Cinefile’s Editor) for
patrons to enjoy on the big outdoor screen.
This year’s program more than doubles last year’s tentative launch of the
twilight movies concept at Cape Mentelle, spurred on by the huge public
response. The vineyard theatre can accommodate 380 people and the $25 entrance
includes the feature movie and a supporting short; patrons are encouraged to
bring a picnic basket and children under 15 are free (subject to the rating and
must be accompanied by an adult).
Doors open at 5.30pm, with screenings starting at 8.00pm.
