The Australian ballet Fairy Tale Series


A sparkling tale of magic and mischief, Coppélia has everything a good story ballet should: a touch of enchantment, a dash of romance and masses of sumptuous costumes.

Swanilda and her merry boyfriend Franz live in a village with Dr Coppelius, a sinister magician and inventor who has created a beautiful doll that he sits on his balcony. One day Franz sees the doll, Coppélia, and becomes infatuated with her. Swanilda and her friends decide to explore Dr Coppelius’ house while he is out to see who the mysterious woman is, but he returns suddenly and Swanilda hides – pretending to be Coppélia. At the same time, the love struck Franz finds a ladder and climbs into Dr Coppelius’ house, who plans to steal his life force to animate his doll, pours Frank a drink with a sleeping draught in it. When Franz passes out, Coppelius brings out Coppélia so Swanilda pretends to be a doll coming to life. Coppelius is delighted – until Swanilda manages to wake Franz and they escape from the house and are married, sealing their love with a tender pas de deux.

The Big Bike Film Night


The Big Bike Film Night
We're on a mission- sharing the best cycling short films from around the world with you.
Spinning some wheels with an impressive lineup that includes a stylish look at London’s bike culture, the remarkable story of an American Bike Frame Builder; an absorbing attempt and challenge of cycling up the gruelling 1912 metre peak Mount Ventoux, two very different faces of BMX, with contrasting stories and styles. We also have the homegrown ‘Muscles and Dreams’ documentary, which follows a bunch of good keen men transforming an idea for a gold miner’s road from the 1800's into New Zealand’s longest continuous single-track - The Old Ghost Road on the West Coast.
Run time - 120 minutes plus 15 minute interval.

At the heart of this collection is showing real people being part of some pretty extra-ordinary stories. The humble bike is the unifying factor throughout these films.

  The Worm is Turning

One Screening Only

Wednesday 31 May  

“We’re eating World War 2's leftovers!” For the past 70 years chemical agriculture has been waging war on life.

This is the story of how corporate agribusiness is taking over the world’s food production revealed through historical archival footage, and shows how this system is destroying people’s health, economies and the ecology of the world.

Filmed on location in India, USA, Thailand, Indonesia and Australia THE WORM IS TURNING shows through amazing examples of ecological farming that in fact small ecological farms are more productive, they can feed more people better, and at the same time restore the environment. e c o l o g i c a l f a r m i n g is THE REAL REVOLUTION.
