Art moving to silver screen
CINEMA buffs are rejoicing at the sight of the new cinema screen at ArtWorks on Davadi.
ArtWorks on Davadi's Zoe Collins said the 3.5m x 4.5m screen was a welcome new addition to the facility.
"It was donated by NetPro, and we have just had it put up in the last few weeks," she said.
"To utilise the screen, we hope to show shorts and arthouse films, starting in the new year. It will probably be a monthly thing, and we would also like to run themed nights, like Rocky Horror, where people come dressed up to the screening."
Ms Collins said the first screening would be on Wednesday.
"We will be showing Bully, that looks at how bullying has touched five kids and their families," she said.
"So far we have had a good response from the teachers and parents at Stanthorpe primary and high schools, and are hoping some of the smaller schools will be interested.
"It starts at 6.30pm, is $10 per person, and for bookings, people should phone 46813020."
Also coinciding with the new cinema screen is the start-up of The Stanthorpe Film Club. Filmmaker and teacher Gabriele Trabucco said the group would get up and running on December 1.
"I am holding a film- production workshop from 9am-3.30pm that is open to anyone over 10 and is $20 a person," he said.
"It will be for anyone with a passion for film production, but places are limited to 12 people.
"Anyone can join the club even if they can't make the workshop."
To register for the workshop or the film club, phone Gabriele Trabucco on 0437823621.
