Steel Magnolias (1989)


Join us for our monthly ‘Cuppa & Classic Film’ morning. Auditorium doors will open at 9am for people to purchase drinks/snacks and head inside the theatre to listen to music and socialise at either the tables inside the theatre or in the theatre seating before the film commences at 10am.

Please let us know if you have physical restrictions and need assistance getting inside of the theatre or if you need a different seating option (eg. a firm chair rather than the theatre chairs). Please also note: The theatre is warm in summer and cold in winter. Please dress accordingly and feel free to bring pillows/blankets etc. to make yourself comfortable. 

STEEL MAGNOLIAS (1989): A beautiful, bittersweet human comedy set in Americas deep south, Steel Magnolias unites the talents of Hollywoods finest actresses as six very special friends bonded together by their mutual triumphs and tragedies.

Despite their differences, beautiful and impulsive Shelby (Julia Roberts in her Academy Award nominated role), her strong willed mother M’Lynn (Sally Field), beauty parlour owner Truvy (Dolly Parton), elegant widow Clairee (Olympia Dukakis), sharp-tongued Ouiser (Shirley McLaine) and mousy newcomer Annelle (Daryl Hannah) enjoy a friendship that spans the boundaries of age and status.

Sharing each others strength and loyalty, these six remarkable women survive the cycles of life, birth and death to emerge stronger, closer and still laughing!
