EXCITEMENT is in the air for the re launch of the Narooma Film Society, this Thursday, September 4 at Narooma Kinema at 6.30pm for 7pm.
The debut screening will be the original “La Cage Aux Folles”.
Based on a successful French play, the film depicts the farcical chaos that results when a gay man attempts to pose as straight for the benefit of his son's future in laws.
It is nothing short of fun and frothy.
It was also one of the first films to show homosexuals as real people, who suffer from the same problems that heterosexual couples do.
The late Robyn Williams starred in a remake, "The Bird Cage", in 1996. Thursday night's screening will be dedicated to his memory.
Narooma Film Society is a "not for profit" group committed to keeping the projected image alive.
“Losses such as Glebe's Valhalla Cinema, Paddington's Chauvel Cinema, and possibly The Astor in Melbourne highlight the need to support our non-mainstream cinemas,” said Narooma Film Society organiser Layla Osta.
“It is also a great opportunity to relax and enjoy a complimentary glass of wine before the film.”
After the screening, moviegoers are invited to linger for some conversation, and delicious coffee, tea and cakes.
Tickets are $17, concession $15 and VIP $12
See you there!
