Books, Wine and The Silver Screen – The Light Between The Oceans

The Sun Bookshop

Event Date: 6 November 2016
Author / Presenters: Dr. Michael Kitson

Join us for a special screening of The Light Between Oceans (in cinemas November 3rd) – the silver screen adaptation of M. L. Stedman’s novel of the same name.

A wine tasting with our friends from Scotchman’s Hill Winery, film screening and Q&A with Dr Michael Kitson. What better way to spend a Sunday Afternoon?


Australian Tom Sherbourne returns home after fighting in the western trenches of World War I in Europe. He and his wife, Isabel, move to an isolated lighthouse, where they remain for several years. While there they informally adopt a baby girl who washes up in a lifeboat. When the child is two years old, Tom and Isabel return to the mainland on leave. There they discover that “there are other people in the world”, and keeping the child “has devastated one of them.”

Time: 2.30pm arrival for 3.00pm film screening.

Tickets can be purchased from The Sun Theatre.
