FOR the first time in Australia, Doctor Who fans will be able to see two high-definition episodes on the big screen.
Fans can experience The Impossible Astronaut and Day of the Moon from series six in HD at Event Cinemas Liverpool on Thursday, March 14 at 7pm.
The special event is part of the Dr Who 50th anniversary year 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 11th doctor, Matt Smith, 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 receive a secret summons that leads them to the Oval Office in 1969.
Enlisting the help of a former FBI agent and the irrepressible River Song, the Doctor promises to assist the president in saving 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 down by the FBI.
With the help of President Nixon and Neil Armstrong, the Doctor is able to mount a rebellion against an alien invasion dating back to the very 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 BBC Worldwide Australasia's Sharon Wilson.
"It's an opportunity for the fans to enjoy the programs and participate in the whole experience in a way that they've not been able to before."
Tickets for the screening are $20 and are on sale now from eventcinemas.com.au, or from the box office of Event Cinemas Liverpool.
Prizes will be awarded on the night to those deemed "best dressed" in their most impressive Doctor Who-themed costume.
