Gates open 6:30pm Film starts at sunset approx. 8pm.
(Film duration 82 mins).

After a plane crash, Saï, a capuchin monkey born and raised in captivity, finds himself alone and lost in the wilderness of the Amazon jungle. Delightful and beautiful. It is a visually stunning and very sweet look at life in the jungle for one bred-in-captivity little monkey who by fate is suddenly free to be what he was always meant to be.

Tragically, man's greed and gross stupidity is destroying vast areas of the Amazon and this is very good at keeping the viewer in the jungle's glory with subtle overtones of humanity and a stark moment or two of reality. Definitely a film for the whole family and reminds us of what a treasure our glorious planet is.

So bring a blanket, cushions, chair, picnic and settle down in the sub-tropical surroundings of these wonderful gardens for this special outside screening (weather permitting). Gates open at 6:30pm time for a garden walk, settle down with a picnic and the film starts at 8pm on the big garden screen 5 metres wide!

Please note no BYO alcohol, but the licensed bar will be open serving wine and beer and soft drinks.
No advance ticket sales, cash on gate only, but if you want to book a ticket you can call on 818 2489 and make a reservation.

With thanks to Rialto Distribution for licensing the screening.
