CINEMA EVENING - Bruce Munro: 9449 5629

Wednesday 30 October - Roseville Cinema

“As a little girl, Michelle Payne dreams of the impossible: winning the Melbourne Cup — horse-racing's toughest two-mile race. The youngest of 10 children, Michelle is raised by single father Paddy. She leaves school at 15 to become a jockey and after early failures she finds her feet, but a family tragedy, followed by her own near fatal horse fall all but ends the dream. But with the love of her dad and her brother Stevie, Michelle will not give up. Against all the medical advice, and the protests of her siblings, she rides on, and meets the Prince of Penzance. Together they overcome impossible odds for a shot at the dream: a ride in the 2015 Melbourne Cup, at odds of 100 to 1. The rest is history.”

 

Dinner, the great monthly social event, will be at either Basil & Bedlam or SaltPepperNutmeg.  The cost for Cinema Ticket and Dinner inclusive is $45 for seniors and $53 for adults.

Our next outing will be to the "Gore Hill Cemetry" The challenge for this field trip is to experiment with

the various settings on our cameras - what happens

when we turn the dials off "Auto". What effect does

changing aperture, ISO, shutter speed, white balance

know where to find these settings? Should we care? For further details see the WRAP.
