The Dish

Starring Sam Neill

Directed by Rob Stitch

Australia 2000 97 minutes

Introduced by Peter Hall

July 1969. Apollo 11's astronauts will walk on the moon - and a huge satellite dish outside a sheep-farming Australian town has been chosen to beam the live footage globally. The whole world is depending on scientist Cliff Buxton (Sam Neill), who must steer the eccentric crew who man the telescope 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 comic culture clash erupts in this effortlessly funny tale of how history's biggest televised event was almost cancelled.

Doors open 7.00pm, Introduction 7.45pm, Film 8.00pm       £8.00, in cash, including a glass of wine.   Tickets, up to two per person, on sale at the Library, Sharpleshall Street, NW1 8YN (on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays) or on the door.
