Wollombi will roll out the red carpet this week for three days of classic cinema.

After a fantastic inaugural year in 2016, the Wollombi Classic Film Festival returns for an exciting second year in the historic village.

The festival will be a mix of night time outdoor screenings in the Grays Inn garden and daytime screenings in the heritage-listed St Michael’s Church.

The festival kicks off with a bang – or maybe a shimmy – on Friday night (February 24) with a huge gala opening and cocktail party including a screening of the legendary disco classic Saturday Night Fever.

Saturday’s films include historical Australian drifter classic Sunday Too Far Away (11am), the fantastic ‘80s thriller Gorky Park (3pm) and iconic morality and redemption tale The Hustler (8pm). 

The fun continues on Sunday with quirky ‘90s hit The Big Lebowski (11am) and concludes with gangster classic Bonnie and Clyde at 2pm.  

Tickets range from $50 to $100 and are available at ticketbooth.com.au.
