Word reaches us of a collaboration between the Spiegel Garden and the National Film and Sound Archive:
Imagining The Capital: Canberra on Film is a free programme of Canberra-related memories, which will be presented by The National Film and Sound Archive of Australia on March 10 from 7.30pm.
The magical evening – set in the beautiful surroundings of The Senate Rose Garden – includes fascinating snippets of the capital’s life from its earliest beginnings to the present day, as well as speakers, musicians and hosts, including a rare performance by 60s pop superstar, Little Pattie (Patricia Amphlett).
Others on the bill include Fred Smith, Alice Cottee, No Hausfrau, Rachael Thoms, Elaine Loebenstein, Louise Page & Christina Wilson, and The Stiff Gins.
Patrons are invited to bring along picnics to celebrate the city’s centenary at the movie event of the century, which will also be the biggest open-air cinema stage show of the year.
