“The 1933 film of Louisa May Alcott's classic Little Women was the first 'talkie' version of the novel. Directed by George Cukor and starring Katharine Hepburn, the film came out during the Great Depression. Its message of resilience, frugality and the need for social reform resonated with audiences of the day. The moving story of the March girls buoyed the spirits, and it still does. Come and enjoy a large-screen presentation of this magnificent film.”
Susannah Fullerton, OAM, FRSN, author, literary tour leader, lecturer and President of the Jane Austen Society of Australia, will introduce the film and lead a Question and Answer session afterwards. https://susannahfullerton.com.au/

"It's fun to find films, to restore them, but it's much, much more fun to restore the audience." Serge Bromberg

“Well, searching for films is like…..[being] a treasure hunter. You never know what treasure you’ll find. You want to go for more. You know there are more treasures to be found out there. That’s step number one. Then, step number two: you realize that the most important [thing] is not film hunting. The most important [thing] is audience hunting. Because a film only exists in the moment it is shown to someone.” Serge Bromberg

"The audience was the final creative contributor to the process of making a film." Kevin Brownlow in the classic early cinema text, The Parade's Gone By.
