April’s Silver Screen features Lion on April 30.

Silver Screen is a free monthly screening programme of iconic and important Australian films. It’s a great opportunity for audiences to access Australian film, meet other film lovers and hear from the actors, directors and producers at a post film Q&A. The films screen monthly in the comfortable theatre at Wide Angle, with plenty of opportunity for refreshments. This programme is possible through support from the Hobart City Council.
