Kookaburra Cinema · Start of the New Season

Attached is the first program for season 14 and I trust that you find something to your taste in another varied selection of films.

As Daylight Saving is not around this summer we have gone back to the original times... Gates now open at 6.30pm and the show starts at 8pm... every night and not sliding about like it did over the trial period.

The days are getting warmer, the grass is all mown and the seats go out next week ready for Nov 20th when we kick off with Mao's Last Dancer.
