Louth Film Club is showing a digital cinema print of Nicholas Roeg’s classic 1971 film Walkabout at the Playhouse Cinema on Monday October 28.
The film tells the story of a teenage girl and her young brother abandoned in the Australian outback where they meet a young Aborigine on his coming-of-age ritual, the solitary ‘walkabout’ that gives the film its title.
Jenny Agutter plays the girl, Luc Roeg (the director’s son) her brother and David Gulpilil the Aboriginal boy.
Walkabout is Certificate 12A. The show starts at 7.30pm. Non-members are welcome, paying the normal Playhouse Cinema ticket prices. Further details about the club and its films can be found on its website — www.louthfilmclub.com — or in its 2013/14 programme, available free from Off The Beaten Tracks, 36 Aswell Street, Louth, or the Playhouse Cinema or Louth Library.
