venue update wArner bros. Movie world goes underCover Warner Bros. Movie World is now the only all-weather theme park on the Gold Coast, launching its new 4000 square metre roof recently.

Movie World the second largest event/function venue on the Gold Coast with a seating capacity of up to 2000 guests. Covering a large area of the park including Main Street and The Plaza - Movie World’s hub of entertainment - the new roof will provide guests with year-round protection from the elements including inclement weather and sultry summer days. Event organisers can also rest assured knowing that no plan B is required – rain, hail or shine – Movie World has got it covered. Warner Village Theme Parks chief executive officer, John Menzies, said the roof will add a completely new dimension to Movie World. “The roof looks spectacular at night with specialty lighting and theming which creates a magical atmosphere, allowing us to offer event organisers a unique experience above and beyond the standard package.” Five-stAr lodge in gold CoAst hinterlAnd When it comes to important meetings you don’t get a second chance to make a first impression – so when business calls for privacy, space and luxurious facilities, Ruffles Lodge provides the ideal venue.
