Sun Theatre in Yarraville Fundraising Event

By September 18, 2014July 8th, 2022No Comments


Children of Phoenix will host a film fundraising evening on Thursday 30th October at the Sun Theatre in Yarraville to help raise money for scholarships.The Sun Theatre is an iconic, Art Deco era cinema that has been beautifully restored… get a group of friends together and come along to support the foundation for a great evening. Nibbles and drinks on arrival, door prizes and a great movie – the premiere screening of the film Pride.

It’s the summer of 1984 Margaret Thatcher is in power and the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) is on strike. At the Gay Pride March in London, a group of gay and lesbian activists decides to raise money to support the families of the striking miners. But there is a problem. The Union seems embarrassed to receive their support. But the activists are not deterred. They decide to ignore the Union and go direct to the miners. They identify a mining village in deepest Wales and set off in a mini bus to make their donation in person. And so begins the extraordinary story of two seemingly alien communities who form a surprising and ultimately triumphant partnership.

Meet the crew of the yacht Children of Phoenix and hear about their exploits as they sail the waters of Port Phillip in support of survivors.

Make sure you bring along some spare cash – great raffle prizes to be had!
