Ticket Information:

  • General Admission: $5.12

A collection of comedic productions from the mid-seventies by Geoff Murphy and the Acme Sausage Co

Percy the Policeman:
Five 6-minute episodes of a children's television programme produced for NZBC in 1974. The shows were never actually broadcast as they were deemed to show the police force in a bad light.

Percy, the good-natured but bumbling policeman, attempts to solve crimes in a variety of slapstick episodes evoking memories of the silent era and The Keystone Cops.

Filmed on location around Wellington, including Kilbirnie and the Pacific Films Production house and backyard. Written and directed by Geoff Murphy.

Tank Busters:
Using the skills of their subjects, five university students plan to rob a safe. Inadvertently they foil each other’s plans and all get caught... except Bruno who takes a psychological approach!
