Holding the Man - Charity Gala Screening

Be one of the first to experience this wonderfully moving, surprisingly funny and ultimately uplifting film about love and loss.

Directed by Neil Armfield this remarkable true life story stars Ryan Corr and Craig Stott as Timothy Conigrave and John Caleo, whose enduring love affair has been immortalised in both Tim’s cult-classic memoir and Tommy Murphy’s award-winning stage play of the same name.

This exclusive pre-release screening is a fundraiser for ACON, which Timothy worked for as a HIV health promotion officer in the early 1990’s.

Guests can choose to just see the film or to also mingle with the stars at an exclusive after party in the bar and balcony of the historic art deco cinema. All guests will get a popcorn, ice cream or drink to take into the film plus they’ll each receive a 2-for-1 pass to Bingay, ACON’s hilarious monthly bingo night at The Shift Club in Darlinghurst.
