THEY SHALL NOT GROW OLD in 3-D 2:30, 7:00
On the centenary of the end of First World War, filmmaker Peter Jackson presents an extraordinary new work showing the Great War as you have never seen it. Using state of the art technology, archival images of a hundred years ago appear as if they were shot yesterday. Jackson brings to life the people who can best tell this story: the men who were there. Reaching into the mists of time, Jackson aims to give these men voices, investigate the hopes and fears of the veterans, the humility and humanity that represented a generation changed forever by a global war. (2018, 132 min, DCP)

Mark Lee and Mel Gibson star as idealistic Australian enlistees in World War I, who then face the harsh realities and the futility of war, culminating in the disastrous Battle of the Nek against the Turks during the Dardanelles Campaign. Full of unforgettable imagery and stirring adventure, Peter Weir’s film is both one of the cinema's best anti-war tracts and a poignant meditation on the nature of friendship. Featuring the music of Jean-Michel Jarre. (1981, 110 min, 35mm ‘Scope)
