Sunday Too Far Away

Screening featuring the 1970s.

The seventies heralded the new wave of Australian cinema—great Australian actors and directors telling ‘our stories’. We honour the decade with Sunday Too Far Away (1975), an insight into the lives of itinerant outback shearers. Jack Thompson won the AFI Best Actor award for his role as Foley, the hard-living gun shearer struggling to hold his place in a changing world.

We are shining a spotlight on Kyneton Town Hall (KTH) in its 90th year with a series of free retro film screenings highlighting its beginnings as a picture theatre in 1929, and its civic and community significance.

KTH Flicks is a curated cinema and film experience that includes  classic movies from the 1930s to 1970s played on the big screen at this remarkable venue, highlighting jewels of the silver screen that (we like to think) had a short run at KTH.

Before each main feature film are cartoons, news reels, trailers for forthcoming attractions, government propaganda and public information shorts, episodes of swashbuckling adventure serials, glass advertising slides and glimpses of real life in the home movies of ordinary Victorians.
