Living history takes to the stage of The Indee at Eumundi on the Picture Show Man weekend (this Friday, Saturday, Sunday, April 20th, 21st, 22nd).

One half of the show recreates the days, at the beginning of the 1900s, when the travelling picture show men moved about the Sunshine Coast, screening the latest silent movies in community halls, including the Eumundi School of Arts.

The second half is a screening of the Australian movie, The Picture Show Man, a light-hearted, but accurate, look at the era of our travelling movie shows.  The cast includes John Meillon, John Ewart and Rod Taylor.

On hand to host the first half will be noted film historian, Kev Franzi, screening a compote of films, spanning the earliest silent productions through to the 50s.

The first of The Indee’s four Century Specials to commemorate 100 years of the Eumundi School of Arts Hall.
