To celebrate the final weekend of Disney: The Magic Of Animation, ACMI is hosting twilight sessions from January 20-22. There will be plenty of special photo opportunities, plus you’ll be able to grab a cocktail from the bar and enjoy a playlist of classic Disney tunes. Showing for the very first time in Australia, the exhibition displays more than 500 original artworks, sketches and paintings that have been carefully selected by the Walt Disney Animation Research Library in Los Angeles. It also charts the studio’s progress and success, beginning with Mickey Mouse’s first talkie (Steamboat Willie) in 1928, right through to 2021’s Raya and the Last Dragon.
Melbourne is a city full of possibilities, which is never more evident than at the beginning of a night out. Filled with plenty of secret little spots, it’s the type of place where you can easily lose track of time and not realise it’s 5am until the sun starts its early morning march through the streets. And there’s a little bit more excitement in the air with the arrival of ACMI’s Disney: The Magic of Animation exhibition. A visit to one of the exclusive twilight sessions is the ideal way to begin a night on the town, with cocktails and tunes to get you in the mood. From ACMI, just a short walk away, rollicking karaoke rooms, underground bars and live music sets await – we hope you’ve had your beauty sleep, because it’s going to be one epic evening.
Disney: The Magic of Animation is now open until January 23 at ACMI in Federation Square. The exhibition features more than 500 rare artworks that have been specially selected by the Walt Disney Animation Research Library in Los Angeles, California.
