Red Dog high­light in fes­tive sched­ule

Pilbara News - - Opinion - Peter Long Peter Long is the City of Kar­ratha mayor.

Well, it’s that time of year again — when things are on all week­end, ev­ery week­end un­til Christ­mas.

We even have West Aus­tralian Bal­let in town on Sun­day to host a num­ber of dance work­shops at the Kar­ratha Leisure­plex, thanks to Wood­side.

But this year, there is also some­thing very spe­cial — the pre­miere of the sec­ond Red Dog movie, Red Dog: True Blue, will be show­ing out­side The Quar­ter on De­cem­ber 3. The film will not be of­fi­cially re­leased un­til De­cem­ber 26, so we are very priv­i­leged.

The movie plot re­volves around Mick Miller, an 11-year-old boy who is sent to work on his grand­fa­ther’s cat­tle sta­tion, the real-life Kar­ratha Sta­tion.

On the sta­tion, Mick be­friends our favourite kelpie, who makes his life more ex­cit­ing and full of adventure than he ever thought it could be.

I was lucky to be able to watch some of the film­ing for the movie last year, be­hind Mia­ree Pool. We re­ceived a lot of rain just at the time the film crew came up, so the coun­try­side looked lovely and green — in fact, rain held up the film­ing and cost them a lot of money.

Of course, the high­light of the film set was the su­per-friendly and very like­able Red Dog — good­ness knows how they ever got him to stay still long enough for the movie.

The pre­miere ar­rival time is 7.30pm for an 8pm start.

Get there early be­cause this will be very pop­u­lar.
