1 min read

MT ZION, the story of Turei (Stan Walker) and his band of bros who pick spuds while dreaming of playing support for Bob Marleys 1979 NZ concert, opened last Thursday in selected cinemas around Australia.

In 14 cinemas spread throughout Brisbane, Gold Coast, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth, the opening weekend box office was A$101,000 the second highest screen average for all films showing over the weekend.

At Pacific Fair Event Cinemas on the Gold Coast, Mt Zion was the No 1 film, following a sold-out opening night premiere on March 14.

Meanwhile, in New Zealand in its 6th weekend of release, the box office take increased by 6 percent over the previous weekend.

The New Zealand total is now $1.216 million, which puts Mt Zion at No 14 in the Top 15 all-time NZ films at the NZ box office, just behind Scarfies.
