Saturday 18th February:
"Kitty and the Bagman" 1983 M

With Liddy Clark, John Stanton, Val Lehman, Colette Mann, Paul Chubb.

Guest Speaker is Rob Whyte,-an extra in the film who will give us an insight
into the making of the movie.
Capturing the dynamic colour and movement of the 1920’s Sydney a vibrant city
of optimism bulging with a dark underbelly of crime. A light entertaining
criminal pantomime with snazzy costumes and antics of gangsters and molls and the true
razor gang wars of the Sydney waterfront.
It's easy and self-assured and positively glowing with energy and good humour
- a real little bottler of a movie celebrating with just the right sort of larrikin air
the motley array of gangsters and molls and bent coppers and crooked judges
who helped to make Australia what it is today.

Kitty, wonderfully and zestfully portrayed by Liddy Clark, rises from an innocent
young bride arriving at the end of World War I, to the owner of
the ‘Top Hat’ a no-holds-barred niterie.

Saturday 18th March: 
“Oddball and the Penguins" (2015) G

Starring Shane Jacobson, Alan Tudyk, Sarah Snook, Richard Davies, 
and Kai the Maremma sheepdog.

He’s lovable, loyal and quite a handful. In fact, Oddball the dog has a reputation
in his local community as a bit of a troublemaker. So when his eccentric owner,
Swampy Marsh, suggests Oddball could be trained to protect the endangered
penguins on the nearby island from foxes, the authorities think he’s barking mad.
But Swampy always likes to bite off more than he can chew. With the help of
his beloved granddaughter, the feisty chicken farmer sets out to prove that
man’s-best-friend can be penguin’s-best-friend too.
“Oddball”is an entertaining and inspiring moviebased on a true story.
It's a good family film that has plenty of humour, but it also has a lot of heart.

Saturday 8th April: 
“Dirty Deeds” (2002) MA15+

   Stars Bryan Brown, Toni Collette, Sam Neill, Sam Worthington.
It is 1969 and business is booming for Barry Ryan,  a Sydney crime boss.
But things get a bit complicated- personally and professionally
–when the Chicago Mafia come to town and try to muscle their way in.
Ryan soon finds himself fending off the trigger-happy "yanks", outback-style,
while also contending with his feisty wife, needy mistress, and a crooked cop.
It's fast, funny and full of action.

Saturday 26th August: TBC

This is an action packed adventure tale retelling the story of the "Mutiny on the Bounty"
