FOR the first time in Australia, Doctor Who fans will be able to see two high-definition episodes on the big screen.
At 7pm on Thursday, March 14, at Event Cinemas Liverpool, fans can see The Impossible Astronaut and Day of the Moon from series six in HD.
The special event is part of the Doctor Who 50th-anniversary celebrations and is exclusive to the Event Cinemas, Greater Union and Birch Carroll & Coyle Cinemas groups.
The two-part story introduced the newest monster created by series executive producer Steven Moffat, the Silence.
Written by Moffat and directed by Toby Haynes, the 90-minute screening stars the 11th doctor, Matt Smith and Karen Gillan (Amy Pond), Arthur Darvill (Rory Williams), Alex Kingston (River Song) and Mark Sheppard (Canton Everett Delaware III).
In The Impossible Astronaut, the Doctor, Amy and Rory are secretly summoned to the Oval Office in 1969.
Enlisting the help of a former FBI agent and the irrepressible River Song, the Doctor promises to help the president save a terrified girl from a mysterious spaceman.
In Day of the Moon, the Doctor is locked in the perfect prison. Meanwhile, Amy, Rory and River Song are being hunted by the FBI.
With the help of President Nixon and Neil Armstrong, the Doctor mounts a rebellion against an alien invasion dating back to the beginnings of civilisation.
The events were devised by BBC Worldwide Australasia. "We're building on the concept of event television by creating simultaneous Doctor Who experiences on big screens across the country for the first time," said the BBC's Sharon Wilson.
"It's an opportunity for fans to enjoy the programs and participate in a way they've not been able to before."
Tickets for the screening cost $20. On the night prizes will go to the cinema-goers who wear the most impressive Doctor Who costumes.
