Waiting for Kong

File under: , ,

Most Wellingtonians seem quite blasé about film premieres (sorry, red carpet screenings) these days, and King Kong hasn't generated the same excitement as the Lord of the Rings films. But it was certainly a hive of activity around the Embassy late last night. They've tarted up the entrance with a period porte-cochere ...

... and there's a biplane that was in the process of installation ...

... and be aware that when they say "Towaway Zone", they really mean it.

For some better pictures, have a look at Felicity and Phillip's photostream on flickr, and this post from Kate.. And don't forget the Citylink streaming webcam that looks out from above Hummingbird (give us a wave, Jo!) towards the Embassy: it's useful for more than just seeing whether there are any tables free outside Establishment, you know.

There's already a bunch of kids sitting alongside the barriers, sweltering in the 9am sun. They're going to smell quite bad by the time things kick off.

Greetings from the USA, where a bunch of kids are freezing in the afternoon cold. That's the way it is at the other side of the planet, you know.
