PUBLIC HEALTH EMERGENCY IN THE ACT

A Public Health Emergency has been declared in the ACT for the response to the COVID-19 pandemic. See the COVID-19 website for more information.

Starstruck: On Location features 16 of the most striking images from the Starstruck: Australian Movie Portraits exhibition, previously seen at the National Portrait Gallery and other venues around Australia.

These beautiful and poignant images tell the story of Australian cinema through the faces of our film actors – from the early 20th century through to today.

In addition, On Location features the incredible 1930s Cinesound casting books displayed as digital flip-books. They are a record of mostly unknown and keen amateurs; ‘starstruck’ hopefuls dreaming of making it big in the local industry. Might you find a familiar face?

Finally, kids (and kids at heart) will love getting dressed up in iconic Australian film costumes with Magic Mirror! This interactive photobooth features costumes from Moulin Rouge! (2001), Ned Kelly (2003), The Dressmaker (2015) and Picnic at Hanging Rock (1975), so come along and get a snap in your favourite outfits.
