Superman will be screened at Jersey's Val de la Mar
Superman the Movie
Superman the movie will be shown as part of Branchage

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No it's a man in tights projected on to a dam in St Ouen.

The original Superman movie will be screened at a special 'drive in' event as part of the Branchage Jersey film festival on Saturday 25 September.

The film will be shown at the Val de la Mar reservoir with the film projected on to the dam and sound broadcast to your car radio.

This is just one of more than 60 events at the Branchage festival.

The classic sci-fi flick Superman will be shown in celebration of the late, great Christopher Reeve, the original movie Superman.

The film will be shown on what would have been his 58th birthday.

The scene of the Hoover Dam exploding is going to look spectacular on the real dam itself.
Chris Bell, Branchage Festival

There are a limited number of tickets available for this event. You buy tickets per car and not per person and drivers will be given a special radio frequency to tune to when they arrive.

Given the setting the iconic scene in the film showing Superman's daring rescue of Lois Lane from the Hoover Dam as it's destroyed by his nemesis Lex Luther is one to watch out for.

Authentic drive in treats such like hot dogs, popcorn and marshmallow-topped hot chocolate will be on sale to keep the film fans toasty.

Chris Bell, press officer and programming assistant for Branchage Film Festival, said: "Superman is a really great, fun, exciting family film and for cinema-goers, this is a really unique opportunity.

"The scene of the Hoover Dam exploding is going to look spectacular on the real dam itself, and it's a really good value for money evening out that you can take your kids to or even your date!"
