Tatura’s Maureen Johnson has set up a ‘‘Private Theatre’’ in Hogan St, and is inviting seniors and other interested parties to an old fashioned matinee.
The theatre seats 12 people, is airconditioned, has toilets, is mobile-aid or scooter accessable and Ms Johnson provides refreshments of tea and biscuits for the cost of $4/session.
Movies are held on Tuesdays with two sessions, 10
‘‘Ladies remember when the wonderful old classics, gorgeous leading men (sorry gents) and the beautiful ladies who appeared with them, graced our screens?’’ she said.
‘‘We no longer have that glamour in today’s movies, so let us step back down memory lane.’’
Ms Johnson said the theatre caters for most tastes.
‘‘If you have a particular favourite, we encourage your input,’’ she said.
Movies being shown this month are Letters to Juliet (2010) and The King and I (1956) today, and Dr Zhivago (1965) and Big Jake (1971), next Tuesday.
Ms Johnson said group bookings were encouraged but not essential.
‘‘Even if you are on your own, you are most welcome,’’ she said.
‘‘Prior bookings are a help to assist with refreshments.’’
Ms Johnson said the Tuesday sessions were specifically aimed for senior members of the community, as children and others would be catered for at a different time.
‘‘We would love to hear from you,’’ she said.
