Pastures of the Blue Crane
Special Film Screening hosted by Friends of Tweed Regional Museum - THIS EVENT IS NOW BOOKED OUT

Sunday 25 November 2018
Regent Cinema, Brisbane Street, Murwillumbah

Pastures of the Blue Crane - Copyright Tweed Shire Council
A scene from the movie. The house used in filming still stands today.
This beloved Australian classic, adapted from the novel by local author, Hesba Brinsmead, is now available to the public again after nearly 60 years. Starring Jeanie Drynan and Harry Lawrence, this iconic coming of age story was filmed locally in the Tweed and showcases the landscapes around Murwillumbah, Terranora, Tweed Heads and Coolangatta in the 1960s.

This event marks the successful end of a two year project between the Museum, the ABC, and the local community to have this iconic piece of film re-released. The film has sat in the archives of the ABC since the 1970s, unable to be viewed due to a complex web of copyright issues. The Museum has worked with local community members to help the ABC contact all the relevant rights holders and re-negotiate contracts, so that Pastures of the Blue Crane can once again be enjoyed by those that remember it, and introduced to a generation who would have otherwise never seen it.

The black and white mini-series will be shown in full (2.5 hours) with an interval. This is the first time since 1969 that audiences have seen it on the big screen; this is a once in a lifetime opportunity - don't miss out!
