Starlight Cinema 2012 opening night of the 2012 programme will take on a distinctly French flavour with Woody Allen’s MIGHTNIGHT IN PARIS. A romantic comedy starring Owen Wilson, Rachel McAdams, Marion Cotillard, Kathy Bates and Carla Bruni, MIDNIGHT IN PARIS is the story of a young man’s great love for a city, and the illusion people have that a life different from theirs would be much better.

Highlights of the 2012 season also include screenings of TWILIGHT: BREAKING DAWN PART 1, WE BOUGHT A ZOO, HAPPY FEET TWO, MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE – GHOST PROTOCOL, the Australian box-office smash hit, RED DOG as well as a special Valentine’s Day screening of the much-loved romantic drama, THE NOTEBOOK.

3 March 2012 – The Brazilian Festa & WASTE LAND screening
Celebrate all things Brazilian with a combination of Brazilian dance, music, cocktails and food along with a special screening of the award winning Brazilian documentary, WASTE LAND (M).

The Brazilian Festa will feature a Carnival parade complete with drumming, costumes, feathers, girls and dancing. Get active by taking part in a Zumba workshop, playing football or enjoying a game of frescoball, or sit back and enjoy a talk by Jayme Akstein on the fundamentals of Brazilian Carnival or the complexities of crossing cultures between Brazil and Australia presented by Cristina Wulfhorst.

Children and family friendly – kids can participate in the Mask workshop, have their faces painted, play football games on the oval, and see a special screening of the animated smash-hit RIO (G).
