November 10 Sunday at 2 pm They Shall Not Grow Old (2018) Metcalfe Auditorium, State Library NSW. 95 minutes Remembrance Day Silver Screen Tribute with soundtrack. Before the presentation Graham Shirley shall introduce the film. Graham, former senior curator and historian at the National Film and Sound Archive, now works on a freelance basis as an oral historian, film historian and archival researcher. The documentary is an extraordinary and unique look back at World War 1 using never-before-seen film footage captured at the time and narrated by British survivors of the war. Award winning director and producer Peter Jackson employed state of the art technology to transform audio and moving image archive footage more than a century old. “Oscar-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson has transformed First World War footage from Imperial War Museums’ extensive archive using modern production techniques for his film They Shall Not Grow Old. Combining the footage with interviews conducted by IWM and the BBC, the film tells the story of what it was like to be a soldier during the war – from what they ate and wore to what it was like to participate in battles and tend to the wounded.” Tickets $25/ $20 at the website home page right hand side or call 0419 267 318.

Sydney: State Library NSW Metcalfe Auditorium December 1 Sunday at 2pm The Holly and the Ivy (1952) 77 minutes with soundtrack. “The Holly and the Ivy is a charming and moving seasonal favourite, peaking with the family's poignant reconciliation as they re-discover the true spirit of Christmas. This Christmas classic also stars Celia Johnson (Brief Encounter, The Captain's Paradise), Margaret Leighton (The Winslow Boy, The Go-Between) and Denholm Elliott (A Room with a View).” “For all those who think that the ultimate Christmas films are IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE and WHITE CHRISTMAS, take a look at this remarkable and uplifting tale of a country parson, and revel in the sheer quality of the writing, the directing, and the superlative performances from a five-star cast. The script is faithfully and carefully distilled from a successful stage play of the 1950s - but the adaptation has none of that cardboard quality that is sometimes a pitfall of putting theatre onto the screen. Celia Johnson, Ralph Richardson, Margaret Leighton, a young Denholm Elliott, and a supporting cast of remarkable talent unfold this bittersweet but ultimately joyous story set in the claustrophobic confines of a country vicarage.” Tickets $25/ $20 at the website home page right hand side or call 0419 267 318.
