What's happening at the Moncrieff

SHOW that you say "no" to domestic and family violence.

It All Begins With Love is a verbatim theatre project developed by Bundaberg arts production company Creative Regions as a campaign against domestic violence in our community.

Working with domestic violence service providers in Bundaberg for the last two years, Creative Regions presents this high-impact professional production as a premiere in our home town.

The play presents real life stories, as told by victims of domestic violence.

The show is live for one night only on Friday, November 21, at 7.30pm.

WE HAVE had many inquiries about the movie Healing (M) and when it will we screen it again.

Well, I am happy to say it will be back at the Moncrieff starting August 28, as you will remember when we were to screen Healing in June and they sent us an empty box.

This is a wonderful Australian movie based on true events.

Movies beginning Thursday, August 21:

  • Mrs Brown's Boys D'Movie; rated M, running time 1hr 43 min.

Nosy, Irish widow Agnes Brown is a terror to her neighbours and a suffocating presence to a family she's sure couldn't survive without her.

When the Dublin market where she sells fresh fruit and vegetables is threatened by a heartless corporation, Mrs Brown launches a crusade to stop the injustice, eventually pulling in her sons, her friends, a group of blind ninjas in training and a lawyer with Tourettes.

  • The Trip To Italy, rated M, running time 1hr 56min.

From Michael Winterbottom's largely successful 2010 film, The Trip, comes The Trip To Italy.

Two men, comedians Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon, are reunited for a new culinary road trip, retracing the steps of the romantic poets' grand tour of Italy and indulging in some sparkling banter and impersonation-offs.

It features six meals in six different places on a trip around Italy - Liguria, Tuscany, Rome, Amalfi and ending in Capri. If you enjoy British humour; beautiful scenery; and awesome food, you'll love this.

Our movies are $7 per ticket for any general session; excluded from this price are fundraisers and the Sydney Travelling Film Festival.

The Sydney Travelling Film Festival is like a stage show for movies, they hire the Moncrieff and set their own prices.
