Brunswick Picture House

Brunswick Picture House

After laying dormant for over 30 years, the curtains lifted on this old theatre in March 2016 and it began a new lease on life, lovingly restored by the creative team behind the award-winning and internationally acclaimed circus/cabaret sensations LA SOIRÉE and CLUB SWIZZLE.

Having survived the wreckers’ ball and the ravages of time, this iconic building’s revival has set the stage for a vibrant and charismatic mix of film, circus, live theatre and family-friendly entertainment.

.
It is our desire to establish the Brunswick Picture House as a local landmark for the community, for people to meet, be inspired, gossip, laugh and be entertained. Dedicated to putting the fun back into going to a show or the cinema, the Brunswick Picture House has re-emerged — reimagined and better than ever.

Penny Arcade's performance was beyond fabulous! What a powerhouse! How blessed are we that she visited Brunswick Heads... And how lucky am I to have her signed cleavage on a poster! It was a Bucket List dream I didn't know I had until it happened! Thank you Brunswick Picture House for the most amazing show... and thank you to Penny Arcade for being herself, and sharing so much with us. <3

Shucks - we love you too!

Award-winning doco Alive Inside at the Brunswick Picture House

Aug 23, 7:00pm - Aug 23, 9:00pm

Brunswick Picture House
30 Fingal St
Brunswick Heads, NSW  2483 Map

ALIVE INSIDE is a joyous cinematic exploration of music’s capacity to reawaken our souls and uncover the deepest parts of our humanity.

Filmmaker Michael Rossato-Bennett chronicles the astonishing experiences of individuals who have been revitalized through the simple experience of listening to music. His camera reveals the uniquely human connection we find in music and how its healing power can triumph where prescription medication falls short.
This stirring documentary follows social worker Dan Cohen, founder of the nonprofit organization Music & Memory, as he fights against a broken healthcare system to demonstrate music’s ability to combat memory loss and restore a deep sense of self to those suffering from it. Rossato-Bennett visits family members who have witnessed the miraculous effects of personalized music on their loved ones, and offers illuminating interviews with experts including renowned neurologist and best-selling author Oliver Sacks (Musicophilia: Tales of Music and the Brain) and musician Bobby McFerrin (Don’t Worry, Be Happy).

In recognition of Brain Injury Awareness Week, we present this uplifting cinematic exploration of music and the mind. ALIVE INSIDE’s inspirational and emotional story left audiences humming, clapping and cheering at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, where it won the Audience Award.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A and panel discussion led by David Roland, author of HOW I RESCUED MY BRAIN: A Psychologist's Remarkable Recovery from Stroke and Trauma, as well as a representative from Feros Care.

In this hugely acclaimed documentary, Oscar-nominated director Josh Fox (GASLAND) continues in his deeply personal style, investigating climate change — the greatest threat our world has ever known.

Travelling to 12 countries on 6 continents, the film acknowledges that it may be too late to stop some of the worst consequences and asks, what is it that climate change can’t destroy? What is so deep within us that no calamity can take it away?

“Tough. As in, tough to watch. Tough to consider. Tough to ignore.”
— New York Times

“An energetic and positive story about actions real people can take to engage in this important issue.”
— Salt Lake Tribune

“I didn’t choose ballet, it’s who I am.”

Blessed with astonishing power and poise, Ukraine-born Sergei Polunin took the dance world by storm and became the Royal Ballet’s youngest ever principal. At the peak of his success, aged 25, he walked away, driven to the brink of self-destruction by stardom — his talent more a burden than a gift. He said he had become so unhappy that “the artist in me was dying.”

Here is an unprecedented look into the life of a complex young man who has made ballet go viral — Polunin appeared in an emotionally raw music video for the huge Hozier hit “Take Me to Church” which has amassed over 100 million views. Urban rebel, iconoclast, airborne angel, Polunin is transforming the shape of ballet as we know it. But virtuosity comes with a high price. How can you be free to be yourself when you are ballet’s ‘hottest property’?

Director Steven Cantor provides intimate access to Polunin in all his shadings, from playful to petulant. The film, which follows Polunin as he travels between the UK, the USA, Russia, and his native Ukraine, offers a different view of the dance world. “It shows a lot of what happens behind the stage,” Polunin says, but adds that the film is about much more than dance. He hopes it will show how similar people are, regardless of which country they come from.

“I want to unite the different countries. I was more concerned with showing how society is, rather than just dance. There are the same kinds of people and the same culture and I knew I was going to use this film to show that people are nice everywhere. There’s not such a big difference.”

He hopes the film will combat some of the negativity surrounding international politics, with each country viewing the other in a negative light, and instead show — through his art and this film — what life is really like, “even in Siberia, where you think it is just snow.”

BIG THIEF RETURN TO AUSTRALIA THIS DECEMBER

Things have been moving at an incredibly fast pace in the world of enchanting Brooklyn folk-rock quartet Big Thief. Having conquered all and sundry on their inaugural Australian tour at the tail-end of our last southern summer, they’re returning triumphantly less than 12 months later clutching their powerful second statement Capacity, a stunning follow-up to their acclaimed debut Masterpiece which introduced them to the world in 2016.

Musically Big Thief remain resolutely in thrall to no particular genre, swinging seamlessly between sparse, atmospheric folk and beautifully refined indie rock. Despite the wide critical acclaim afforded Masterpiece, for Capacity the band chased a raw sound where spontaneity was paramount, arranging the new songs for the first time in the studio and then recording them that very same day to capture the initial spark. The results are fresh and uncontrived, brimming with subtlety and restraint yet immediate and headstrong and unfailingly potent.

On their initial Australian visit earlier this year Big Thief delighted crowds at Perth Festival as well as at their own well-attended gigs in Sydney and Melbourne (including a slot on the celebrated Melbourne Zoo Twilight series alongside LA rockers Warpaint). Now upon their return Down Under they’re upping the ante significantly, playing headlining shows in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane and Brunswick Heads, as well as a prime spot on the cherished Meredith Music Festival line-up.

They’re in fine fettle on the live front having spent the best part of a year criss-crossing the globe since Masterpiece first took root, so take the opportunity to immerse yourself in the gorgeously harrowing-yet-hopeful world of Big Thief as they return south to Australia this December: they may steal your heart, but your soul will be reinvigorated and your spirit left bolstered.

Big Thief also playing Meredith Music Festival.
