The Old Gazette Film Society is a sub-committee of the Dorrigo Dramatic Club Inc. formed in 2016 by a group of committed Dorrigo residents to provide an environment to share film, food and conversation on the Plateau.
We are a member of the Australian Film Societies Federation who issue to us, for a small fee, licences to show specific movies to our members. Due to licensing restrictions, you must be a member of the Film Society to attend screenings which are then free. Members are allowed to bring one guest along per calendar year and a guest may attend twice before needing to become a member.
Film nights are organised and run by volunteers. So please offer to come and help us serve refreshments or assist us with other tasks.
An interesting selection of films for the second half of the year is now on theCalendar.
Unfortunately we have had to change July's film but we are sure you will enjoy our replacement, The Sapphires.
Next film Wednesday 16 August In a World An underachieving voice coach finds herself competing in the movie trailer voice-over profession against her arrogant father and his protégé.
Come along at 6.30 for nibbles and wine/tea/coffee
Screening starts at 7:30
Don't forget you can bring a guest along. The more the merrier!
Winter dining at the theatre Kenton served Tomato Meatball Penne Pasta with garlic bread before the film The Sapphires. Just the thing to warm film goers on a chilly night. Greatly enjoyed by everyone.
The Sapphires was a moving film, funny at times and had some great music from the 1960's.
Are you a member? Would you like to become a member? If so come along on the night and join or email us via the Contact page beforehand and you can see any of our films at the Drama Theatre.
