Starstruck Film Screening | Picnic at Hanging Rock

Past Event


As part of the Starstruck exhibition, GRAG will be showing a special screening of Picnic at Hanging Rock in our theatrette! Make sure you check out the original costume worn by Miranda in the film, which is on display downstairs.

In the early 1900s, Miranda (Anne Lambert) attends a girls boarding school in Australia. One Valentine's Day, the school's typically strict headmistress (Rachel Roberts) treats the girls to a picnic field trip to an unusual but scenic volcanic formation called Hanging Rock. Despite rules against it, Miranda and several other girls venture off. It's not until the end of the day that the faculty realizes the girls and one of the teachers (Vivean Gray) have disappeared mysteriously.

This screening is free, but places are limited so please register. Please note no food or drink is permitted in the theatrette.

This has been made possible with thanks to the National Film and Sound Archive and the National Portrait Gallery.
