A working-class African-American father tries to raise his family in the 1950s, while coming to terms with the events of his life.
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.
Gates open at 6.00pm. Movies start from 7.30pm (depending on sunset)
