Sunshine Coast Council’s Nambour Arthouse Cinema today announced a range of Special Event screenings which will complement their already diverse program of cinema offerings in 2014.
The Special Event screenings will take place on a Thursday night at various times throughout the year and will show everything from cult-classic films such as Rocky Horror Picture Show, Ghostbusters and Pulp Fiction through to niche sub-culture films and documentaries.
To kick of the special event series, Nambour Arthouse Cinema will screen the big wave surf film, Storm Surfers, on Thursday, April 24 at 7pm.
Storm Surfers is an epic, real-life adventure following two best friends on their quest to hunt down and ride the biggest and most dangerous waves in Australia. Aussie tow-surfing legend Ross Clarke-Jones and two-time world champion Tom Carroll enlist the help of surf forecaster Ben Matson and together they track and chase giant storms across the Great Southern Ocean.
Over one big-wave winter season in 2011 the team experience the brutal force of Mother Nature, score the waves of a lifetime and come close to death, before embarking on an expedition to surf a mythical wave that has never before been ridden. Seventy-five kilometres from land lies a secret reef known as Turtle Dove Shoal – and so begins a mission far beyond anything they have ever attempted in their lives.
Narrated by Toni Collette, Storm Surfers is a ground-breaking cinema experience that places the viewer on the wave.
Cost to attend is $14 for adults, $11 for concessions, $9 for film club members, $11 for full-time students and $9 for children under 13 years.
