Jetty Memorial Theatre: Revamped and ready to entertain

Cinematinee grows local Coffs Harbour screen culture

OVER the last year Screen Wave, in parternship with the Jetty Memorial Theatre, have grown a local film and screen culture scene for audiences that love the finer things in life: travel, food, love and music.

The Cinematinee program exhibits world cinema, arthouse, and independent film titles on the big screen at the historic Jetty Memorial Theatre fortnightly on Thursdays with daytime sessions at 10:30am and 1:30pm.

"We love seeing people come together in the cinema.There's something really special and dear to us about the cinema experience, when the lights go down," Screenwave's Artistic Director Kate Howat said.

"Sharing these wonderful films, that don't often receive widespread release and distribution, for an appreciative audience has seen audience flock in numbers to the Jetty Theatre, creating a great social scene for mature audiences around film."

There are three upcoming films throughout the next month for Cinematinee.

Marie's Story (May 26th), a moving French film about a 19th century nun and her unique friendship with a young, deaf French student.

Truth (June 23rd) features a powerhouse cast of Cate Blanchette, Robert Redford, and a cast of Australian talent delving into the ethics of journalism.

Followed by Just A Sigh (June 30th), a romantic comedy that unfolds in real-time against a backdrop of vibrant Paris starring Gabriel Byrne and Emmanuelle Devos.
