Slim & I kicks off our Outstanding month of Home grown Talent!!

For over 50 years country music legend Slim Dusty and his wife Joy McKean trail-blazed their way across Australia performing, writing and collecting songs of the bush and its people. They created a musical legacy that to this day continues to entertain and inspire, a catalogue of plain speaking yet profoundly insightful music documenting the rural Australian experience. Theirs is perhaps one of the greatest partnerships in Australian music history. SLIM & I is a feature documentary that tells the incredible story of that partnership and of the brilliant woman who lived beside, rather than behind, the legend. Australia’s own "Queen of Country Music", Joy McKean.

October brings forward an even more impressive collection of home grown movies that will have you cheering- "Aussie Aussie Aussie, Oi Oi Oi"!!

Catch the ADVANCED SCREENINGS: October 23-25th

A retelling of the brilliant Icelandic film of the same name (a hit with Australian audiences in 2016 that also won the Un Certain Regard at Cannes 2015), this iteration sees the tale adapted to the remote terrain of Western Australia, where two estranged brothers, Colin (Sam Neill) and Les (Michael Caton), are at war.

Raising separate flocks of sheep descended from their family’s prized bloodline, the two men work side by side yet are worlds apart. When Les’s prize ram is diagnosed with a rare and lethal illness, authorities order a purge of every sheep in the valley. While Colin attempts to stealthily outwit the powers that be, Les opts for angry defiance. But can the warring brothers set aside their differences and have a chance to reunite their family, save their herd, and bring their community back together?

A film sure to strike true for many Australians, where hardship is balanced with our renowned larrikin sense of humour, this tale beautifully explores family, connected through land and community, and the relationships at the heart of those communities.

In Gregor Jordan's adaptation of the acclaimed novel by Tim Winton, the stunning landscape of Western Australia is the backdrop for an impassioned tale of love and grief.

A reticent loner with a tragic past who gave up his life as a musician, Lu is wary of letting Georgie in. But their fervent attraction gets the better of them, and secrets are uncovered that will change their lives. When Jim finds out about the affair, Lu flees into the punishing terrain with no intention of returning, and Georgie sets off on a chase to bring her lover back.

Outstanding Halloween Double Features!!

Wes Craven's Halloween Double Feature- Option 1- MA-15+ONLY

We're stepping back in time and going totally RETRO for our HALLOWEEN DOUBLE FEATURE!!! With TWO Great Options to choose you wont be short of a scare this Halloween!!

The original 1982 Poltergeist!! M-15+
Strange and creepy happenings beset an average California family, the Freelings -- Steve (Craig T. Nelson), Diane (JoBeth Williams), teenaged Dana (Dominique Dunne), eight-year-old Robbie (Oliver Robins), and five-year-old Carol Ann (Heather O'Rourke) -- when ghosts commune with them through the television set. Initially friendly and playful, the spirits turn unexpectedly menacing, and, when Carol Ann goes missing, Steve and Diane turn to a parapsychologist and eventually an exorcist for help.
Scream- original 1996 MA-15+
"Wes Craven re-invented and revitalised the slasher-horror genre with this modern horror classic, which manages to be funny, clever and scary, as a fright-masked knife maniac stalks high-school students in middle-class suburbia. Craven is happy to provide both tension and self-parody as the body count mounts - but the victims aren't always the ones you'd expect."
