THE SENTIMENTAL BLOKE
IMPORTANT UPDATE: Cancellation of The Sentimental Bloke on 13 June 2020
In this rapidly evolving situation as our community faces the threat of the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) and a slew of events across Australia are cancelled and venues close, we are looking very carefully at our programming and options.
We have decided that it is both responsible and prudent to cancel The Sentimental Bloke on 13 June 2020
We will offer 3 options for your ticket: to process a refund (which in most cases will be automatically credited to purchasers), you can donate your refund or you can opt to hold your refund in credit for 12 months. We will be sending an email to all ticket holders so you can inform us your preferred option. Please bear with us as we work through our lists.
Set in the Sydney working class suburb of Woolloomooloo and based on the best-selling verses of C J Dennis’ 1915 book The Songs of a Sentimental Bloke, Raymond Longford’s ﬁlm humorously tells the heart-warming story of larrikin Bill – the Sentimental Bloke – his sweetheart Doreen, and his ruffian mate Ginger Mick.
This National Film and Sound Archive version incorporates footage found in the vaults of George Eastman House (Rochester, New York) and has restored the vibrant colours of the original tinting and toning.
