Bushfire Relief Fundraiser for Port Macquarie Koala Hospital

Session Times



How's the serenity? Join us in Bonnie Doon for Australian classic The Castle (1997) on Sunday 9th February with 100% of ticket sales donated to the relief efforts of Port Macquarie Koala Hospital. Screening at Golden Age for the very first time, the cult comedy follows the Kerrigan family who've built their own slice of real estate paradise just a few yards from Melbourne's Tullamarine Airport. Led by devoted and daggy family man Darryl (Michael Caton), they're shocked to discover that their cherished home has been condemned for demolition. Desperate to save their 'castle' – and its esteemed pool room – Darryl and his brood recruit hack attorney Dennis Denuto (Tiriel Mora) and prepare themselves for the fight of their lives.

Why You Should See This Film

Tragically, more than 8,000 koalas have already perished during the recent fires in NSW alone – almost a third of the state's entire koala population – but the kind carers from the Port Macquarie Koala Hospital have been working tirelessly to preserve and tend to those creatures in need – including our local koalas injured in the Blue Mountains fires.

With thanks to Roadshow Films and Working Dog.
