They Saved Paradise….Including the Parking Lot!
Set in the seaside suburb of St Kilda, politics, big business and communities collide in a battle over controversial plans to transform ‘triangle’ terrain between iconic landmarks Luna Park and the Palais Theatre into a high residential and commercial complex.
Spanning over four years, the documentary directed by Rosie Jones, gives all sides of the Triangle an opportunity to tell their story, including many colourful protagonists, from Rachel Griffiths to Dave Hughes.
Triangle Wars goes beyond the borders of St Kilda examining much larger themes around citizen activism, grassroots campaigning and the contest of ideas surrounding urban planning.
Join us, and bring your friends and a few snacks for a free screening of the hit documentary. All are welcome. Complimentary popcorn provided upon arrival.
