THE CINEMA at South West Rocks has re-opened this week after being sidelined for nine months by COVID issues.
"During our closure our young cinema supervisor passed away. Josh Hennessy was our heart and soul so we have also renamed the cinema in his legacy - formerly the Roxy, now 6th toe | movies + music," cinema owner Garry Farrar said.
"Josh had a unique trait that he would boast about - a sixth toe on one of his feet!
"Part of our movie scheduling over the school holidays is an Australian movie, Swimming for Gold, starring Daniel Needs, a South West Rocks local.
"This Saturday, January 9, Daniel is dropping in to the cinema to talk about his career and the making of this movie - plus Q&A for patrons and then he will intro the movie screening."
The event will starts at 2.15pm, with the movie rolling from 3 o'clock.
"We can only accommodate 45 patrons so it will be a small intimate event. Patrons need to book via www.6thtoe.com.au," Garry said.
"The world of movies and cinema is changing due to COVID, so being able to show a local Aussie production and have a very local star of the movie in attendance is special."
