Don’t miss! 4 DEVILS – HELL AND HIGH WATER
Thursday 24 April 7.30pm, The Regent Theatre, Yarram (ONE NIGHT ONLY!)
A play in six acts presented by The Regent Theatre and Gippsland Regional Arts, written by Lily Hibberd…
4 Devils was screened on the opening night of the Regent Theatre, on 18 June 1930.
This 1929 F.W. Murnau film is famous today because it all prints have been lost.
In a one-night live show performed by local residents, some of the key characters behind two of Yarram’s picture theatres come back from the past in an attempt to restage the lost film.
Yarram is a picturesque town in south Gippsland, featuring a beautiful cinema The Regent. Built by Mrs Margaret Thompson and opened in 1930, The Regent still operates as a cinema and multi-function venue. It will present Lily Hibberd’s play about its history intertwined with the story of the first film screened there – Murnau’s 4 Devils.
Why not visit Yarram and stay overnight for this unique opportunity to experience Lily Hibberd’s play performed by a local cast in the beautiful Regent cinema.
