Film Circuit Brampton Presents Fall Line-Up of Films

(Brampton) - Peel Heritage Complex, in partnership with the Toronto Film Festival, presents the fall movie line-up for the Film Circuit Brampton. The Circuit will open with The Dish on Thursday, Sept. 6, 2001, 7:30 p.m., at the Famous Players Silver City, Trinity Common Mall, Hwy. 410 and Bovaird Drive in Brampton.

Based on a true story, The Dish recounts the emotions, drama and humour behind the four-day Apollo XI mission in July 1969 and the extraordinary role that Australia played in televising the historical lunar landing to the world.

On July 19, 1969, the world was about to witness the greatest feat in scientific history - man setting foot on the moon. This is the incredible story of what we didn't see. The Dish tells of a group of eccentric scientists manning a satellite dish located on a remote Australian sheep farm. On the eve of the historic lunar landing, NASA finds that the Aussie apparatus is the only receiving dish on earth capable of broadcasting images of man's first steps on the moon. In this inspired human comedy, the unconventional Australian crew must overcome a series of mishaps as they go on to play a crucial role in one of mankind's greatest achievements.

Tickets to see The Dish are $5 and can be purchased in advance at the Peel Heritage Complex or by calling 905-791-4055, Ext. 2105, or on the night of the performance at the movie theatre. There will be a draw for a pair of tickets to attend every show during the Circuit's fall season.

Other films for the Circuit's fall season include:

All proceeds from the Film Circuit Brampton go to support educational programs for Peel children and their families. The Peel Heritage Complex acknowledges the following community sponsors who helped make this project possible:
