Aberdeen's Golden Oldies screening Aussie classic The Man From Snowy River II

ANOTHER Aussie classic will hit the big screen at Aberdeen’s Golden Oldies for Golden Oldies next week.

The Man From Snowy River II, starring Sigrid Thornton and Tom Burlinson, is the group’s latest offering at the Aberdeen Sport and Recreation Club on Tuesday, August 14.  

During the 1880s, handsome young cattleman Jim Craig (Burlinson), accompanied by his herd of Australian horses, returns to his hometown of Snowy River to be with his love, Jessica Harrison (Thornton). 

However, Jessica's father, Harrison (Brian Dennehy), steadfastly opposes their relationship, preferring Alistair Patton (Nicholas Eadie), an egotistical banker's son, as a potential suitor. 

When Patton learns Jessica wants to be with Jim, he sets out to steal Jim's prized horses.

The auditorium doors, at the Aberdeen Sport and Recreation Club, open at 11.30am and a three-course luncheon will be served prior to the screening of the movie, which is hosted by the Upper Hunter Museum of Rural Life.

Free tea or coffee is available, too.

However, a donation of $10 is requested to cover costs.

As numbers are limited, early bookings are essential and can be made by telephoning Daphne on 6543 8356.
