Come and join us for our special Film screening to celebrate seniors week.

This is a great opportunity to see an iconic war film, Peter Weir's Gallipoli on the "Big Screen." This powerful depiction of personal struggles and experience of Gallipoli in 1915 has brought this important national stroy to an internation audience.  

Gallipoli is a 1981 Australian film, directed by Peter Weir and starring Mel Gibson and Mark Lee, about several young men from rural Western Australia who enlist in the Australian Army during the First World War. They are sent to the penisular of Gallipoli in the Ottoman Empire (in modern day Turkey), where they take part in the Gallipoli Campaign. During the course of the movie, the young men slowly lose their innocence about the purpose of war. The climax of the movie occurs on the ANZAC battlefield at Gallipoli and depicts the futile attack at the Battle of the Nek on 7 August 1915.

Gallipoli will play in our BAE Systems Theatre at 10:30am -111minutes.
