Old and Gold screen snip­pets in mu­seum show­case dis­play

Tweed Daily News - - PULSE ENTERTAINER -

THE Tweed Re­gional Mu­seum will host the fi­nal event of the Tweed on Film ex­hi­bi­tion next week.

Old and Gold, pre­sented in part­ner­ship with ABC North Coast, will see footage from the vault screen at the Queens­land Rd, Mur­willum­bah, Mu­seum from 5.30pm on Thurs­day, Novem­ber 16.

The screen­ing will show­case ABC’S record­ing of Tum­bul­gum and the Count­down to Mid­night at the First Sup­per Be­tween Now and For­ever which was per­formed as part of the If These Halls Could Talk project last year along with other his­tor­i­cal and new snip­pets of the Tweed on screen.

The mu­seum’s di­rec­tor, Judy Kean, said the ex­hi­bi­tion, which runs un­til Novem­ber 25, had been a “fan­tas­tic cel­e­bra­tion of film in its var­i­ous forms”.

“The Old and Gold pro­gram is a great note to fin­ish on,” Ms Kean said.

“In many ways it’s a snap­shot of the evo­lu­tion from news­reel and TV doc­u­men­tary through to the present, where the abil­ity to put to­gether short films that cap­ture our sto­ries is re­ally within ev­ery­one’s grasp.

“Short films be­ing made now, like the sto­ries from our Post­cards from the Tweed work­shop, will be the fu­ture his­tor­i­cal doc­u­ments of our com­mu­nity.”

Ad­mis­sion to the screen­ing is free, book­ings es­sen­tial. Email trm@tweed.nsw.gov.au or phone 02 6670 2493.
