Fact-based drama set during the 1967 Detroit riots in which a group of rogue police officers respond to a complaint with retribution rather than justice on their minds.
As the sun goes down and the stars come out, the Cape Mentelle gardens transform into an outdoor cinema beside the iconic vines. With cult favourites and box-office hits projected on the big screen and the spectacular natural environment as the backdrop, it's the ideal recipe for the perfect summer evening. Arrive early to experience the stunning Margaret River sunset and truly seize the night with gourmet food matched with your favourite bottle of Cape Mentelle wine.

In the summer of 1967, racial discrimination in Detroit reached breaking point and the city erupted into one of the largest citizen uprisings in US history. From Academy Award winning director Kathryn Bigelow (Zero Dark Thirty, The Hurt Locker), DETROIT zeroes in on one pivotal event during the civil unrest - the Algiers Motel Incident - a motel raid which spiraled out of control as police interrogated guests, ending in tragedy. A brilliant ensemble cast including John Boyega (Star Wars) and Anthony Mackie (The Hurt Locker, Captain America) portray the real-life people before, during and after this defining moment in their lives. This gripping, intimate film is essential viewing - an urgent, masterful recreation of history with heartbreaking parallels to the present.
