Kookaburra Cinema · Season 15 Program 3

Attached as the usual PDF is the last one for this summer. Has been a reasonable season so far despite some of the problems created by the strange weather patterns. However the footy pre-season fixtures have suddenly created a dent in the attendances so from now until Easter Sunday our last session for 2010/2011 I expect that things will be a tad quieter.

Thanks for your support over the past season and I trust that you find something in this final program that suits your taste.
