Eumundi's outdoor cinema, "Flicks in the Sticks" has announced its next screening --"The Lighthorsemen" -- on Friday 23 April at the Eumundi Showgrounds.
"The larrikinism and mateship are recurring themes together with the loss of innocence in war and the continued coming of age of the Australian nation and it's soldiers. The perfect film to watch in memory of our soldiers past and present to capture the ANZAC spirit of Australians" says Flicks Director Trent Harvison.
"Since starting in December 2009 we've gained a loyal following who come along to each movie. With our commitment to the community we are proud to make this poignant film an ANZAC Day fundraiser for the Sunshine Coast Legacy Group, which has been caring for the families of deceased veterans since 1923" says Trent. "We all have a great time under the stars, and it's a real family friendly environment".

A bit about the movie...
The Lighthorsemen, which remembers one of the Australian Defence Forces finest moments -- the Battle of Beersheba and the charge of the 4th Light Horse Brigade.
Palestine, 1917. The British advance has been stopped by the Turkish line running from Gaza to Beersheba. The latest attack on Gaza has failed. The attacking forces included a regiment of mounted infantry, the Australian 4th Light Horse Brigade. Lighthorseman Frank is wounded in a skirmish with Bedouin. He is replaced by a young soldier, Dave, who proves to be a crack shot, but reluctant to fire at the enemy. Dave proves himself during a German biplane attack. Recuperating in hospital, he meets a sympathetic nurse, Anne. The regiment is called upon for a bold flanking attack on Beersheba. But how do you convince the Turks the main attack will come at Gaza? And how do you attack across a desert without water?
