LIVING is the story of an ordinary man, reduced by years of oppressive office routine to a shadow existence, who at the eleventh hour makes a supreme effort to turn his dull life into something wonderful – into one he can say has been lived to the full. 1953. A London shattered by WWII is still recovering. Williams (Bill Nighy), a veteran civil servant, is an important cog within the city’s bureaucracy as it struggles to rebuild. Buried under paperwork at the office, lonely at home, his life has long felt empty and meaningless. Then a shattering medical diagnosis forces him to take stock – and to try and grasp fulfilment before it goes beyond reach. At a seaside resort, chaperoned by a local decadent (Tom Burke), he flirts with hedonism before rejecting it as his solution. Back in London he finds himself drawn to the natural vitality of Margaret (Aimee Lou Wood), a young woman who once worked under his supervision and is now determined to spread her wings. Then one evening he is struck by a revelation – one as simple as it is profound – and with a new energy, and the help of Peter (Alex Sharp), an idealistic new recruit to his department, he sets about creating a legacy for the next generation.

Cast: Bill Nighy, Alex Sharp, Aimee Lou Wood.

History

The Euroa Civic Centre Hall previously acted as a cinema (The Euroa Civic Theatre), until it ceased operation in the early 1980s. Given the relatively limited entertainment opportunities, particularly for children and youth within Euroa and the wider district, the idea of restoring the Euroa Civic Theatre to its former glory was born.

Council received State Government funding from the Regional Arts Infrastructure Allocation – Regional Cinemas Program to upgrade the hall. The total cost of the project was approximately $80,000 which was co-funded by Council and the government on a dollar-for-dollar basis. After a lot of hard work by community members and Council staff, the Euroa Community Cinema was opened in November 2003.

Initially films were shown once every month, however screenings increased after sufficient demand. The cinema has now transitioned to a digital format and screens movies Saturday evenings and Sunday afternoons, with additional screenings throughout the year.
