Join Johann Hari live from London talking with Channel Nine journalist Laura Turner after the Australian Premiere of The Fix to be followed by Elvis.
We are screening the Australian Premier of The Fix narrated by Samuel L Jackson and the much-anticipated new release Hollywood blockbuster movie Elvis in a night of enlightenment and entertainment.
The Fix is based on Johann Hari’s 'Chasing the Scream' and explores the drug wars in the United States and society's misunderstanding about drugs and addiction.
Elvis, a movie extravaganza by Baz Luhrmann starring Austin Butler and Oscar winner Tom Hanks, explores Elvis Presley's meteoritic rise to one of the most famous performers in history.
Elvis’s dramatic fall from grace while battling food and drug addiction underscores that addiction is part of the human condition and can happen to anyone.
Johann Hari will join us live from London to discuss the making of the documentary ‘The Fix’ and his epic worldwide journey to discover the truth about drugs and addiction.
Information tables from 12 of Australia’s leading Alcohol and Other Drug charities will be present to answer your questions, hand out information and explain their services. In addition, harm Reduction Victoria will be conducting Naloxone demonstrations showing how to save someone from overdosing on opiates by administering Naloxone.
Books, Fentanyl testing strips, drug testing kits and other merchandise will be available to purchase.
Doors will open at 5:45 pm, the first movie starts at 6:30 pm and refreshments will be available.
About Support Don't Punish campaign
During the last week of June, more than 150 cities across the world will take part in the global advocacy campaign ‘Support. Don’t Punish’, calling on governments to enact drug policies that prioritise public health and human rights.
Note: We are replacing the previously advertised movie Candy with the new release Elvis blockbuster to coincide with the worldwide release on the 24th of June. Our friends at Palace offered us the option, and we couldn’t refuse. We hope you enjoy it.
