DUSTY FILM in conjuction with ROMSEY PS 150th Anniversary

Press Release:

The Picture Show Man returns to Romsey.

Films were shown at the Romsey Mechanics Institute (RMI) throughout the 1920s to the late 1940s. In that wonderful tradition we are pleased to announce that on Saturday 24th of October the RMI, 122 Main St Romsey, will be showing the Australian movie Dusty. Dusty was made in Romsey and surrounding areas in 1982. Many locals were used as extras in the film, the Mechanics’ Institute featured in one scene. Scenes were also filmed at Romsey House (now 5 Kings Café and Baytree Café) the Lobb family farm “Woodlands” and the Scanlon sheep yards and shearing shed in Springfield.

The Lancefield and Romsey Community Bank Branches are sponsoring the film. The Mechanics’ Institute wish to thank them very much for their support in bringing this event to Romsey. The screening of the film is in conjunction with the Romsey Primary School 150th Anniversary celebrations which are running from Thurs 22nd to Sat 24th of October.

Tickets will be on sale at the door on the night from 7.00pm, $4 per adult, $10 per family (Two adults & two chn under 16). Popcorn, Maltesers, Choc Tops etc (before the show) and supper (at intermission) will be on sale from the GRAAP committee. There is plenty of parking behind the hall, entrance off William St.
