Reels is the South East’s official Film Society. Members enjoy viewing a variety of award-winning art-house and foreign films as well as Australian and International classics at the Sir Robert Helpmann Theatre in Mount Gambier.
Each month lovers of cinema come together to appreciate quality movies, socialise and chat over nibbles and enjoy a pre-movie glass of fine wine from the Limestone Coast region.
REELS Film Society, Sir Robert Helpmann Theatre, Mount Gambier
Reels Film Society, previously known as Reels @ Wehl Film Society, was created in August 2008 to bring art-house Australian and international films to Mount Gambier and the region. Many of the films shown in the art-house theatres in the capital cities, such as Palace Nova, are not available in commercial cinemas in many regional cities or country Australia, as there is no population to support a profitable screening.
Reels was established as a not-for-profit and run by volunteers to enable the screening of these films for the local community.
In the early years, members enjoyed the ambience of the historic Wehl Street Theatre. In 2015, the Reels Film Society relocated to the Sir Robert Helpmann Theatre. This centre continues to provide a social atmosphere, a haven for good company where members can enjoy a pre-screening glass of wine and a chat. It’s easy to become a member and everyone’s welcome.
