Take a step back in time and watch the story of a group of young Australian men who leave their various backgrounds behind and sign up to join the ANZACs in World War I.

They are sent to Gallipoli, where they encounter the resolute Turkish army.

Originally envisioned as a detailed, epic narrative of war, Gallipoli was gradually narrowed in scope to focus on the experiences of the two friends, competitive runners who enlist in the army for slightly different reasons. Archie is the idealist — joining to do his duty. Frank is more cautious and self-centred, eventually talked into enlisting by his mates.

Archie and Frank bond quickly and suddenly find themselves transported to Egypt, on their way to Turkey and their respective appointments with destiny.

Join us for this special Remembrance Day screening where we pay our respects to the ANZACS who fought for our country. Lest we forget.
