Young, rich, and obsessed with death, 20-year-old Harold finds himself changed forever when he meets fun-loving 80-year-old Maude at a funeral.
Join us to celebrate the 50th anniversary of this much loved film, with an introduction by SMSA member, Peter Rainey.
The film will be introduced and given context by Peter Rainey, an SMSA member and cinema enthusiast, who returns to an earlier passion for films as a Program Director for a Queensland Cinema Group, now that he has retired after 40 years in the education profession.
This event will be held in person at our newly renovated Henry Carmichael Theatre (formerly known as the Mitchell Theatre), Level 1, 280 Pitt Street Sydney.
Registration to attend this event is essential due to limited capacity (as per COVID-19 safety regulations).
