A highlight for fans of jazz!

On a hot day in outback Western Australia in 1969, legendary American jazz trumpeter Billy Cross (Miles Davis) performs an impromptu concert on the tarmac after his plane makes an unscheduled stop. Among the stunned audience is John Anderson (Daniel Scott), aged nine, who decides on the spot to become a trumpet player. Twenty years later, John (Colin Friels) is making a meagre living tracking dingoes and playing trumpet in a local band. He still dreams of joining Billy on trumpet and makes a pilgrimage to meet his idol.

This is an Australian classic from 1991 and features jazz great Miles Davis in his only acting appearance.

A highlight for fans of jazz and those who believe that dreams can come true. It screens at 7.30pm on Thursday 3 June 2021 in the Killara Centre, Camperdown.

Get Low

USA 2009 PG Drama 1hr 40min

An entertaining and well cast character drama, part folk tale and part real-life legend.

Felix Bush (Robert Duvall) is a much-feared, elderly recluse with suspicion surrounding him in 1930s Tennessee. The townsfolk are surprised when he plans to hold a funeral party for himself while he is still alive. Frank Quinn (Bill Murray) owns the local funeral home and offers to help Felix organise the party. On the day long-held secrets are revealed involving a local widow Mattie Darrow (Sissy Spacek), Bush’s girlfriend in their youth, and her deceased sister. The town reexamines its prejudices and assumptions about the tortured soul of Felix.
The film is loosely based on a true story that occurred in Roane County, Tennessee in 1938.
