Grab a picnic rug and a few friends and head down to Darling Harbour over the next three nights for some blood-curdling films. The National Maritime Museum is presenting Vampire Flix by the Vampire, three classic vampire flicks to celebrate the 50th anniversary of HMAS Vampire.
HMAS Vampire, docked at the National Maritime Museum is Australia’s largest museum vessel, the last of three Daring class destroyers, built in Australia during the 1950s and commissioned in 1959.
The vampire flicks will be screened on a new outdoor venue by the water. Blackula is screening on Thursday night followed by The Lost Boys on Friday night and Twilight on Saturday night. Films start at 7.30pm but it would be best to get there early to pick up your tickets and settle into a good spot on the viewing platform. You can either take a picnic dinner (how about a thermos of hot tomato soup) or buy snacks and drinks at the Yots Cafe, open from 6pm on film nights.
General tickets are $20 or $15 for ANMM members and those with concession cards. You can also book tickets online through their website. You might also have the time to relax and enjoy a movie and dinner deal for $60. All the information you need is available here. If not you can talk to someone at the museum on 9298 3777.
