New Screening Times for “Volcano”

Added: Mar  1, 2015   |Posted by Admin |  Comment(s) 0

Showing in Mount Gambier at Main Corner, Volcano uses the latest scientific research and computer graphics in a movie to tell the incredible story of the eight major eruptions that created Mount Gambier.

Visit the Main Corner Facebook page to view a trailer of Volcano

The film is the cinematic centrepiece of the light, sound and interactive displays at Main Corner and incorporates the Craitbul Dreaming (Dreamtime) story. Craitbul introduces the power and inspiration of the local indigeneous Dreaming stories that are followed by the spellbinding journey starting in a local school oval, then taking you on through the dramatic volcanic landscapes of Mount Gambier and South West Victoria and finishing in the sparkling waters of the Blue Lake.

Screenings are FREE.
