The Moving Picture Show presents

The Kid Stakes

As a celebration of the hundredth anniversary of the Country Women’s Association, we are showing The Kid Stakes, one of the real gems of Australian silent-era cinema made in 1927. Filmed in the area around Woolloomooloo, Potts Point, Centennial Park, and the Moore Park Showground. The part of Sydney where the CWA first began. All based on the Fatty Finn weekly newspaper comic strip

Big Business and Liberty

Big Business features Laurel and Hardy celebrating Christmas in California and is regarded today as the greatest of all the Laurel and Hardy silent comedies. Liberty shows the boys teetering around half-built skyscrapers.

These were made just before the boys went on to achieve great success in the talkies.
