DOUBLE FILM SCREENING!
Tickets $15 for entry into both films.
‘A Gun in Each Hand’
Spain, 2012, Comedy/Drama, M, 1hr 37 min
A film which has nothing to do with Westerns, gangsters or gunslingers, ‘A Gun in Each Hand’ is about how men try to negotiate their way through a minefield of contemporary personal relationships, and continually fail. This subversive yet poignant film is sharp as new scalpel, tempered by wicked humour and occasional glimpses of empathy.
Australia, 1996, Drama, M, 1hr 43 min
Lewis is a twenty-something man who lands a job at a psychiatric hospital. But he gets more than he bargained for when he finds himself directing an adaptation of the Mozart opera ‘Cosi` Fan Tutti’ to be performed by the patients. But that’s only part of the story. Echoing the theme of the opera, best friend Nick does his best to lead Lewis’ girlfriend Lucy astray. Tickets available online at https://www.trybooking.com/WXBZ.
Saturday 4th August, 7:30pm, Theatre Royal Camperdown

‘A Man Called Ove’
Sweden, 2015, Comedy/Drama, 1hr 56 min
Ove is a quintessential angry old man next door. An isolated retiree with strict principles and a short fuse, he spends his days enforcing block associated rules that only he cares about and visiting his wife’s grave. Ove has given up on life. After a boisterous young family moves in next door and accidentally flattens Ove’s mailbox, an unlikely friendship forms. Tickets available online at https://www.trybooking.com/WXCH.

In the lead up to NAIDOC Week, we will be screening two documentaries – ‘Contact’ and ‘The Song Keepers’.

‘The Song Keepers’ tells the story of an Aboriginal women’s choir and their tour of Germany.
‘Contact’ and ‘The Song Keepers’ will be screened on Thursday 5th July at 7.30pm in the Theatre Royal, Camperdown. There will be a brief interval between the two documentaries.
Our July screening of ‘The Song Keepers’ will be part of local NAIDOC week celebrations. ‘The Song Keepers’ is the inspiring story of an Aboriginal women’s choir and their first tour of Germany.
