Academy Award-winning director Ang Lee (Brokeback Mountain, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) delivers a comedy inspired by the true story of Elliot Tiber (Demetri Martin) and his family, who inadvertently played a pivotal role in making the famed 1969 Woodstock Music and Arts Festival one of the biggest events in musical history. Unfortunately there are no concert scenes in the film, rather the focus is on Elliot, who never got to see any artists perform either. Sexual awakening (well it was the Age of Aquarius), relationships and survival are the dominant themes, washed down with a whole lot of mud and the odd joint. Some great scenes and laughs amidst the backdrop of this generation defining event.
The Enmore Theatre plays a distinctive role in the social and cultural life of the city and occupies a unique position in Sydney’s theatrical history.
International acts such as Coldplay, Oasis and the Rolling Stones have filled stadiums around the world. The opportunity to experience these acts in an intimate theatre setting is one that Sydney’s Enmore theatre has delivered and much more since it opened in 1908.
Renowned as Sydney’s longest running live theatre venue, the Enmore has also hosted the full range of the arts from photographic, performing arts, music and motion picture. It survived the 1980s where the Sydney pro-development movement saw the demolition of the Regent theatre. It has also survived the turbulent cinema industry that a few years ago saw the demise of the Valhalla Theatre in neighbouring suburb, Glebe.
