“The Boys in the Boat” Premiere

The Saraton Theatre opening screening of the “Boys in the Boat” will be on Thursday 18th January at 7.30pm and is a fund raiser for the Grafton Rowing Club wooden boat weekend in June 2024.

Tickets are the standard price of $ 18.00 per person, of which a very generous portion goes to Grafton Rowing Club.

The film is based on the non-fiction novel about the 1936 University rowing team that competed for gold in the 1936 Berlin Olympic Games. This true story follows a group of underdogs, at the height of the Great Depression, as they are thrust into the spotlight and take on elite international rivals.

Prior to the screening, interested movie-goers are invited to meet for dinner at the Clocktower Hotel.

Numbers will need to be confirmed with both the Saraton and the Clocktower no later than Tuesday, January 16.

Please let friends and family members know about this fundraiser.

Remember, please RSVP via email by Tuesday, January 16, as per this Facebook posting or RSVP by text as per this Facebook posting.

We hope to see you there 🙂
