When Rob Sitch’s The Castle was released on to our cinema screens, it was a surprise success, with its cast of hopelessly decent characters, and its memorable script that introduced into the Australian vernacular such lines as, Tell ’em they’re dreaming.

20 years on, celebrate The Castle, on the big screen at Eaglehawk’s Star Cinema for a special event as part of Star Cinema Eaglehawk’s Cinetopia classic film screening program.

Anthony Radford hosts John Flaus – who played the local policeman (“put them gates around the back”) to introduce this anniversary screening, then sit back on the couches of this lovely old cinema to watch the Kerrigans fight and win, against the odds, the right to their family home.
