ANZAC Day 2015

Christie projection helps share military history

​​Christie® technologies were used to commemorate Australian New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) Day, a day of national commemoration. A total of 12 Christie Roadster S+20K projectors were used on both The Carillion and The Dominion Museum.

Australian New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) Day falls on the 25th of April every year and it is a significant day for both Australia and New Zealand. It marks the anniversary of the The Battle of Gallipoli, which was the first major military action of the First World War that Australian and New Zealand forces participated in together. Many casualties were suffered at during the campaign and every year, numerous public events are held across Australia and New Zealand to commemorate and remember these heroes.

One of the ways the New Zealand government and Wellington City Council commemorated this event was through a show titled, “WWI Remembered: A Sound and Light Show,” which took place at Pukeahu National War Memorial Park. The year 2015 was especially symbolic for the New Zealand government and the Wellington City Council as it marked the 100th year since the ANZAC landed on the shores of the Gallipoli Peninsula.
