As part of Junee’s observance of the 100th Anniversary of Remembrance Day, the Athenium Theatre hosted two events on November 11, 2018 — a concert by Getupndans and the showing of the movie, The Lighthorsemen.

Unfortunately, we were having to much fun dancing on the dance floor and enjoying the performance by Getupndans and forgot to grab some photos of the Concert 🙁

The second event was the showing of the WWI themed movie, The Lighthorsemen. This was also the first time the Athenium Theatre’s Dress Circle was opened for use by a public event! Nearly 100 people turned out to view the movie — with the majority heading upstairs to watch from the refurbished Dress Circle.
