About the event

Join SurfAid and needessentials for the global premiere of Torren Martyn's feature film 'Calypte' - an epic sailing and surfing journey. All proceeds from these premiere screenings will be donated to SurfAid, helping to improve the health, well-being, and resilience of remote communities in Indonesia. The dream had been bobbing around in Torren Martyn and Aiyana Powell’s heads for a year or two. It seemed pretty simple: learn how to sail, then buy a boat and head off on an adventure exploring waves in exotic locations. But things don’t always go to plan. Only a few days after beginning the process of learning, an opportunity popped up. A boat in the South China Sea that needed to be delivered to eastern Indonesia - 'the job’s yours if you want it.' With thousands of remote islands and endless perfect surf between origin and destination, the decision seemed simple. 'Why wouldn’t we? Only one small problem - we don’t know how to sail yet…' ‘Calypte – a sailing and surfing journey’ is a story of taking risks and embarking on new challenges. It’s about learning to become a sailor and being shaped by the sea. The sort of experiences that can only be gained by throwing yourself in the deep end and having a crack.

Bar and Pizza from 5pm. Film starts at 7:00 pm. End times are approximate and vary night to night.

Bookings essential. Text the Dome Cinema with your name, date, movie and number of people to 027 590 2117. Tickets are $20 Cash Only.
