November - It's Party Time

If it feels like this month's movie has come around quickly, it's because it has.

Where screening on the second Thursday this month, so that's next week - the 14th.







Our main feature is a relatively short film so we've added a classic British comedy "the Plank" to give us an almost double feature.

Our main offering will be "the Party". A soiree to celebrate a rising political career doesn't go quite to plan.

As usual drinks and nibbles will be available form 6:30, with the screening commencing at 7:00

Looking forward to seeing everyone there.

The Teacher Has Important Lessons for Us All

Plenty of highlights to look forward to next Thursday (the 17th). After our pre-film food and wine we'll have the thrill a minute AGM! Don't miss it; and it's not too late if would like to nominate for a position on the committee, new members are very welcome.

Oh, and there will be a film.

This month we are off to Czechoslovakia for a Slovak tale of corruption and political influence in the former communist state. The year is 1983 and the wall, and all it stood for, is still up. A principle and parents have to decide whether they are brave enough to challenge a new teacher and her corrupt behaviour, in light of her high up connections.

This month you can prepare for the cut and thrust of the AGM with a glass of Parker Coonawarra Estate's fine product, and be fortified with the snacks provided by the RSL Ladies.


Look forward to seeing everyone there.

My apologies, I had a complete brain fade last night and sent out information about the wrong film.

Our offering this month is not Italian, it;s not a comedy and it's not about corruption. Apart from that I was right on the mark.

Our film this month is actually the Spanish family drama "Summer 1993". The story of 6 year-old Frida's struggle to settle into a new life, in a new place after her mother's death.

A highly regarded film and winner of multiple awards, this promises to be an entertaining night out.

On the plus side, I did get the date, times, food and wine right. So we;ll see you next Thursday (the 12th) at 6:30 for a 7:00 start, with Penley Estate wines and the
RSL Ladies' food to sustain us.

If previous Italian comedies are anything to go by we're in for a good laugh on Thursday the 12th, the second Thursday of the month..


The story of a Sicilian town, beset by dishonesty and corruption, turning to a politician to solve their woes. Optimism beats pragmatism  it seems.Of course not all goes to plan ...

This month we will be again fed by the RSL Ladies and enjoy the delights of Penley Estate's wines. As always food and wine form 6:30, screening at 7:00. Looking forward to seeing evryone there.

Professor Marston and the Wonder Women

Remember this month's movie is a week later than usual, so the 25th rather than the 18th.





Next week will be learning of the unorthodox lifestyle of the man who invented the lie detector and created Wonder Woman, and his wonder women. A tangle of relationships and controversy.

This month we will be enjoying Karatta wines and the food prepared for us by the RSL Ladies.

 

As usual doors open at 6:30, screening at 7:00. Look forward to seeing you.

A Canadian/Irish production reminding us that we shouldn't be judgemental, disabled doesn't mean incapable and adversity can be overcome.




Thursday June 20th we're back to the SIr Robert Helpmann Theatre for this month's film, "Maudie". Maud suffers from rheumatoid arthritis but isn't the untalented fool people think. Based on the true story of Canadian folk artist Maud Lewis "Maudie" is an inspiring story of gaining acceptance.

This month we will be enjoying Raidis wines and the food prepared for us by the RSL Ladies.

As usual doors open at 6:30, screening at 7:00. Look forward to seeing you.
