State of Origin to break onto the big screen in 3D

Event Cinemas will bring world first 3D State of Origin action to the big screen with exclusive presentations of games two and three of the current series in selected cinemas.

The special screenings will be held on Wednesday 16 June (game two) and Wednesday 7 July (game three) after Event Cinemas has entered an exclusive partnership with the Nine network, and Harvey Norman.

The screenings will give rugby league fans the chance to get up close and personal with towering, superstar players as they burst out of gigantic Vmax 3D screens in an experience never before seen in Australia.

Nine Network CEO David Gyngell says it is another first.
