About this event

Taking place at in the Drama Room at the WPCC, Smokescreen brings Dubbo residents the opportunity to witness iconic and influential films from the history of cinema.

The theme for 2021 is ‘From the Playwright’s Desk’; films that were originally written for, and presented on the stage. Designed to take place in only a few locations, these ‘limited setting’ films bring the focus on the psychology of the characters. And in their confinement, there is little escape.

THE CARETAKER (1963) RATED M15+

Whilst renovating his dilapidated home Aston (Robert Shaw) invites an irritable and devious vagrant (Donald Pleasence) to stay. But, when his ill-tempered brother Mick (Alan Bates) returns, an ominous yet darkly comic power struggle between the trio commences.

Starring; Alan Bates, Donald Pleasance, Robert Shaw

Written by Harold Pinter and directed by Clive Donner

Ticket price includes a complimentary standard drink for adults 18+ only at the Establishment Bar Dubbo following the film.
