To celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Moon Landing, please join us at The Athenium Theatre, Junee to watch the classic Australian Movie — The Dish on the Theatre’s new HD projector and sound system.
The Dish tells the story of how a remote Australian community, populated by some very quirky characters, played a key role in the first Apollo moon landing.
Apollo 11’s astronauts are set to walk on the moon – and a huge satellite dish found in the paddock of an Australian sheep farm has been chosen to beam the live footage around the globe. The whole world is depending on a group of eccentric Australian scientists, lead by Cliff Buxton (Sam Neill), stumble through a sea of mishaps and disasters that threatens to spoil the small town’s finest hour. Watching over them is a by-the-book NASA representative who can’t quite understand their quirky working methods. A comical culture clash erupts in this effortlessly funny tale of how history’s biggest televised event was almost cancelled. The Dish is a warm-hearted and hilarious comedy based on a true story of what the world didn‘t see.
