The world is closing in on Greta Driscoll. On the cusp of turning fifteen she can’t bear to leave her childhood, it contains all the things that give her comfort in this incomprehensible new world. She floats in a bubble of looserdom with her only friend Elliott, until her parents throw her a surprise 15th birthday party and she’s flung into a parallel place; a world that’s weirdly erotic, a little bit violent and thoroughly ludicrous – only there can she find herself. Based on the critically acclaimed production by Windmill Theatre, GIRL ASLEEP is a journey into the absurd, scary and beautiful heart of the teenage mind.
The club is part of the Federation of Queensland Film Societies and operates under the umbrella of the Mission Beach Community Arts Centre Inc. which is a not-for-profit organisation. Cinema Paradiso is run by volunteers.
Twice a month we will bring the cinema to Mission Beach, offering a wide range of films for all tastes, from Hollywood to Bollywood, from mainstream to art house. We have theme months throughout the year.
