ABOUT THE I AM 100 PROJECT

This September marks 100 years since work began on the world's largest war memorial, The Great Ocean Road.

From 18 September - 6 October, Great Ocean Road Tourism will be hosting a series of events which celebrate the Story of the Road, from past to present, with a mix of film, documentary screenings, pop-up cinemas, art and augmented reality trails along a route from Torquay to Apollo Bay.

Capturing the history of the region and creating a deeper connection for visitors and locals alike, we are encouraging people to stay longer and future generations to better appreciate what the road means to Victoria, and Australia.

 

POP-UP CINEMAS

Five pop-up cinemas housed in shipping containers will be dropped at prominent locations in Torquay, Anglesea, Lorne, Wye River and Apollo Bay. Each cinema will be screening an 10 minute long localised story of each area and its history. Each container has been transformed into a different 1920's scene e.g. cinema, lounge, speak easy bar etc.

Visitors are encouraged to pre-register to receive priority entry to the cinema, jumping the queue. Non-registered visitors are of course still welcome to enter the cinema but due to limited capacity, may be required to queue.

 

VOLUNTEER INFO 

Each pop up cinema will have 2 attendants. 

Guests will be ushered into the container with up to 10 guests at any one time. Each session is approximately 10 minutes.
