The Centre Cinema in Canberra is closing down, due to refurbishment of the building, however it will not re-open in the renovated building. As its swan-song the cinema owner is running a farewell festival of favourite films over the next couple of weeks. This cinema is some 36 years old, has a wonderful large screen and fantastic sound.

The following programme has been designed to give Center Cinema a big send-off. A full colour souvenir poster with the Festival programme is now available from the cinemas. (I have removed details of other films)

Friday 16 May at 7.30: THE LORD OF THE RINGS – THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING (rated M). On the big Center screen, in response to many requests.

Friday 23 May at 7.30: THE LORD OF THE RINGS – THE TWO TOWERS (rated M)

All of the films in the Festival are 35mm, and are either new or believed to be in excellent condition.”

Thanks to Lolly for the news!
