Cowra Civic Centre will present three films about three of our favourite sports – cricket, tennis and soccer. The films have all the drama, excitement, highs and lows that sports fans would expect from watching a game. They will be inspiring, moving and a must-see for anyone who loves sport.
Venue Manager, Jonathan Llewellyn said of the program, “We are programming films that connect with our local audiences in all sorts of ways. We don’t just have blockbuster films. We actively seek out titles with stories that will connect with audiences and their diversity of tastes and interests. The world of sport is full of theatrics and drama with inspirational stories to tell.”
