Millennium Point will host a series of film screenings and themed events to mark the arrival of the Gaia artwork

Award winning conference and events venue Millennium Point has announced a brand-new events programme to celebrate the arrival of Gaia, a major art installation which will be unveiled at the venue next month.

 

Gaia, a large-scale touring artwork by UK artist Luke Jerram, will be on display at Millennium Point from 1 February to 28 March 2022.

 

Created from detailed NASA imagery of the Earth’s surface and measuring seven metres in diameter, Gaia invites visitors to appreciate the beauty and majesty of our planet on an awe-inspiring scale.

 

To celebrate its arrival, the venue has announced an exciting programme of film screenings, family activities and themed events, which are now available to book online.

 

Millennium Point’s 354-seater Auditorium (formerly the first IMAX cinema in Birmingham) will screen a number of film favourites during Gaia’s installation, giving movie-lovers the chance to combine a visit to the spectacular artwork with a trip to the big screen.

 

For those looking for a Valentine’s Day with a difference, visitors can enjoy an exclusive screening of Baz Luhrmann’s epic retelling of the Shakespeare classic, Romeo + Juliet, on Saturday 12 February. Tickets are priced at £20.00 per person and each pair of tickets will include a complimentary bottle of prosecco to enjoy during the film.

 

There’s plenty of fun for families too, with a series of special film screenings during February half term which are perfect for children of all ages. On Friday 25 February, get ready to go ‘under the sea’ and enjoy Disney classic The Little Mermaid on the big screen. And on Saturday 26 February, youngsters can watch the adventure of a lifetime with a screening of fan favourite Moana.

 

Tickets for The Little Mermaid and Moana are priced at £7.50 per person, with child tickets including a bag of sweets to enjoy during the screening.

 

Throughout February, Millennium Point, in partnership with Thinktank Science Museum, will be running a series of interactive drop-in sessions for families and children, hosted under the giant Gaia artwork. From fun-filled experiments and activities to demonstrations and performances, the programme will highlight the fascinating world of environmental science and the actions we can all take to help protect the planet we call home.

 

And on Saturday 19 March, visitors can see the world in a whole new light, as they enjoy a Silent Disco underneath the Gaia globe. Millennium Point has teamed up with silent disco experts Silent Noize, to give visitors the best night of music from rock, indie and power ballads to RnB, hip hop and old skool club classics. Tickets are priced at £10.00 per person.

 

Rebecca Delmore, commercial director at Millennium Point, said:

 

“We’re so pleased to announce our exciting events schedule to celebrate the arrival of Gaia at Millennium Point. We’re delighted to display this jaw-dropping artwork, which encourages us to appreciate the beauty of our planet like never before. Our events programme guarantees that your visit to see Gaia will be one to remember, and we can’t wait to welcome visitors for an experience that’s out of this world.”

 

Gaia is free to visit, open to all ages and no booking is required. For more information and to plan your visit, go to: https://www.millenniumpoint.org.uk/gaia/
