Weta Workshop & Roxy Cinema Exclusive WOAP Event

Media release

CoCo at The Roxy unwraps the art of food in film

Wednesday 20 August 2014

Wellington’s iconic The Roxy Cinema is turning into a movie set next week as part of the 2014 VISA Wellington on a Plate festival.

The event “Unwrapping the art of food in film” sees The Roxy Cinema and Weta Workshop join forces to transport around 130 guests into the world of film in the Roxy Cinema’s Grand Lobby.

Guests will have the opportunity to meet some of the world’s best and brightest film food technicians, art directors, local film makers and set dressers while indulging in exquisite food created by CoCo at The Roxy.

Award winning film director Sir Peter Jackson is providing exclusive access to props from his personal collection for the event, as are Wingnut Films, 3 Foot 7, and Weta Workshop.

“The Roxy’s exclusive ‘Unwrapping the art of food in film’ event may well be the pinnacle of the 2014 VISA Wellington on a Plate festival. It is a once in a lifetime opportunity for film and food fans to see what it involved in bringing food to life in films. Weta Workshop is setting up a series of movie sets in our Grand Lobby, and we have some of the world’s leading set designers dressing the area. “It will be a hands-on, interactive event,” says Carole Tredrea, Event & Marketing Manager at The Roxy. “Guests will have access to exclusive props that have never before been seen outside of closed movie sets, and be able to meet some of the world’s leading artists and set designers who are based here in Wellington. It will be a fabulous event that brings together the best Wellington has to offer in food and film.”

Each guest will receive a ticket for The Weta Cave Workshop Tour, which allows guests to see the work being done inside Weta Workshop, one of the world’s leading concept design and physical effects manufacturing operations. This is the second year The Roxy Cinema and CoCo at the Roxy have been involved in VISA Wellington on a Plate and to date their events have all sold out well ahead of time. Event organizers have released additional tickets for ‘Unwrapping the art of food in film’ to meet demand.
