Paradise Road

Set in Sumatra during WW11, women imprisoned by the Japanese seek solace from the horror of their imprisonment by forming a vocal orchestra. The film and its soundtrack resonated widely with international audiences and even generated ‘paradise road choirs’ in regions around Australia, to capture the experience and the music that forged unforgettable friendships in the movie. Stars Glenn Close.

Members’ Admission: $10 for one Movie or $30 for all four
General Admission: $15 for one Movie
