Somewhere in the Swiss alps, a grande dame of best-selling crime literature lives with an impressive collection of books, and a somewhat sinister collection of guns and knives.

But when a mysterious international visitor barges in to her home unannounced, will her love of fictional murders become a dangerous reality?
A lover and a fighter, Cyrano de Bergerac is a man’s man. Peerless in battle and heroically eloquent in love, what he lacks in physical allure he makes up for in swordplay and wordplay. In this lavish production, Richard Roxburgh dons the nose that launched a thousand quips. With the irresistible panache that Australian audiences have fallen in love with time and again, Roxburgh proves that the brain can be the greatest erogenous zone.
In a wondrous world of riddles and hidden treasure, bumbling Jack Hare is on a race against time to deliver a message of love from the Moon to the Sun.

But when Jack’s mission goes topsy-turvy, Joe and his mum come to the rescue, and the line between the two worlds becomes blurred forever.

Showing March 4-April 26, 2015. Photography by Brett Boardman.
