SPE­CIALTY SCREENINGS BOYS IN THE TREES (M) The Arts Cen­tre Gold Coast

It’s Hal­loween 1997 — the last night of high school for Corey, Jango and their skater gang, The Gromits. Child­hood is over and adult life beck­ons. But for Corey, his past has some un­fin­ished busi­ness. When he en­coun­ters Jonah, a for­mer child­hood friend but now vic­timised by Jango’s cruel streak, Corey takes pity on him and agrees to walk him home for old time’s sake. What starts off as a nor­mal de­scends into some­thing darker and mag­i­cal as they tell each other ghost sto­ries, draw­ing upon their fears of the world around them. But on the night of the grave’s de­light, even the most buried truths will find a way of com­ing to life. Three shows only — Satur­day 4pm, Sun­day 12.45pm, Mon­day 7pm.
