Thursday Pictures – Sweet Country

IT’S FILM WEEK! The second half of our 2019 program kicks off this Thursday with Sweet Country, a deeply affecting tale of an Aboriginal man’s plight to seek justice after killing a white man in self-defence. Based on true events in 1920s outback Australia, this screening will complement a number of local events commemorating NAIDOC Week. Come along to see a modern Australian classic and enjoy supper and discussion afterwards. $10 entry or $30 for a three-month membership subscription.

Thursday Pictures – Departures

IT’S FILM WEEK! After winning a string of major awards including the 2009 Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film, Departures went on to enchant audiences around the world. It centres on a young cellist who loses his job and finds himself reluctantly working in the funeral industry, knowing he will be shunned by many people, including friends and family. From this unpromising start, Departures blossoms into a lyrical, eye-opening film you are unlikely to ever forget.

Come along out of the cold this Thursday night for a touching film and stay after for supper and a discussion.

FILM WEEK – Goodbye Christopher Robin

After leaving London for the English countryside, writer A.A. Milne starts to spin fanciful yarns about his son’s growing collection of stuffed animals. These stories form the basis for “Winnie-the-Pooh” and “The House at Pooh Corner,” published respectively in 1926 and 1928. Milne and his family soon become swept up in the instant success of the books, while the enchanting tales bring hope and comfort to the rest of postwar England.

7.30pm at Killara Centre, Camperdown. Thursday, May 2, 2019. $10 entry (supper included). Three screening subscriptions available for $30 or yearly subscription available for $90.

When, by executive decree, all the canine pets of Megasaki City are exiled to a vast garbage-dump called Trash Island, 12-year-old Atari sets off alone in a miniature Junior-Turbo Prop and flies across the river in search of his bodyguard-dog, Spots. There, with the assistance of a pack of newly-found mongrel friends, he begins an epic journey that will decide the fate and future of the entire Prefecture.

$10 entry (supper included). Three screening subscriptions available for $30 or yearly subscription available for $90.
