Museum building takes centre-stage in feature films

Footage of the Museum Building at Massey’s Wellington campus features in two upcoming films.

One, Eternity, is a science-fiction mystery set in the near future inside a computer game. It will be screened exclusively at Wellington’s Paramount theatre next month.

The second, The Emperor, starring Academy award-winner Tommy Lee Jones and Matthew Fox, brings to life the American occupation of Japan in the perilous and unpredictable days just after Emperor Hirohito's World War II surrender.

Campus events manager David Pearce says it was exciting being involved behind the scenes. Many enquiries for use of campus venues for different events and activities are received throughout the year, Mr Pearce says. "Requests are usually accepted where they don’t impact on staff and students, or normal operation of the University.”
