19 September 2019 marks the 100th birthday of the Great Ocean Road.
A special event series which shares ‘The Story of the Road’,detailing its construction by World War I returned servicemen and their lives as they built the 243- kilometre road, joining the isolated towns lining the western Victorian coastline.
This half hour documentary tells the story of the Great Ocean Road; the building of the road, the history and the impact it had on the surrounding region.
Established in the 1930s to meet the demand of tourism as a result of completion of the Great Ocean Road, The Lorne Theatre and Apollo Bay Mechanics halls, are the ideal venues for these exclusive screenings.
The Lorne Theatre, with its original finishes include terrazzo floors, geometrically patterned ceiling panels and fixtures such as seating and lighting, is one of the few remaining early single-screen movie houses left in country Victoria. Also screened at the Apollo Bay Mechanics Hall.
Whilst viewing the documentary, guests will be exported back to the 30s, encouraged to dress for the occasion.
The immersive film event will be complete with swing band The Sugarfoot Ramblers, vintage treats and guests may enjoy a French 75 by Great Ocean Road Gin and specially brewed 1920s beer recipe from local brewery Prickly Moses.
Join us for a special night at the flicks. Three shows only.
