CINEMA EVENING - Bruce Munro Ph: 9449 5629

Last Wednesday evening of month - 28 August

- Roseville Cinema

 

In “Palm Beach,” a Murderer’s Row of vintage yet durably sparkling Australian acting talent, combined with recent Oscar nominee Richard E. Grant, makes for a bright and eventful weekend in the sun at the eponymous northern Sydney enclave. The second feature-length directorial credit from actress-turned-director Rachel Ward following the resonant and well-received 2009 drama “Beautiful Kate,” this breezy yet sturdy dramatic comedy is aimed squarely at a mature demographic.

 

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.
