A major national tour is underway this month for Ben Elton’s big-hearted ensemble comedy Three Summers, ahead of a hometown screening on Thursday October 26 at the Grand Cygnet Cinemas in Como.
This will kick off a week of Q&A screenings and appearances at Perth cinemas, including a special charity screening in Mandurah for the local Peel region where the film was shot last year.
Ben Elton will be appearing at five special events in Perth in the lead up to the film’s theatrical release on November 2 in cinemas everywhere.
‘‘It was a joy and a privilege to make Three Summers in WA, a state I have called home for many years, and I am greatly looking forward to sharing it with audiences at the many exciting events planned in Perth, Freo and Mandurah in the lead up to the release,” says Elton.
Fusing romance, music and Ben Elton’s trademark wit and satirical edge, Three Summers, is an ensemble comedy that embraces the diversity of modern Australia. At a summer music festival, the feisty lead singer of an Irish folk band (Rebecca Breeds) meets a folk music-hating Theremin player (Robert Sheehan) and sparks literally fly.
Three Summers delivers an engaging folk tale of contemporary Australia with the soundtrack and the belly laughs for the summer to come. Also starring Deborah Mailman, John Waters, Kelton Pell, Jacqueline McKenzie, Peter Rowsthorn, Kate Box, Christiaan Van Vuuren and Nick Boshier.
