Sunday at the Movies

WHEN:              Sunday 20th June, 2021

TIME:                 1.30pm                                        

WHERE:             Palace Theatre, Norton Street  Leichhardt.

WHATS ON:     Dream Horse

The true story of race horse Dream Alliance, an unlikely champion bred by small town bartender Jan Vokes (Toni Collette). Set and shot in Wales.

With very little money and no experience, Jan convinces her neighbours to chip in their meagre earnings to help raise Dream and compete with the racing elites. Their investment pays off as Dream rises through the ranks and becomes a beacon of hope in their struggling community.

The Palace conforms to all COVID restrictions, and online or phone bookings are recommended. Bring a mask just in case they’re required. This link will take you to the online ticket sales portal.

 Hope to see you in the foyer before or after the movie for a snack or coffee.
