Press Release

Spielberg, Streep and Hanks hit the big screen on Sydney Harbour

Our 2018 opening night film…

Opening night at St.George OpenAir is one of Summer’s hottest tickets, and in 2018 it’ll be all the hotter thanks to the extraordinary film we have for you.

Steven Spielberg directs Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks in The Post, a thrilling drama about the unlikely partnership between The Washington Post’s Katharine Graham (Streep), the first female publisher of a major American newspaper, and editor Ben Bradlee (Hanks), as they race against time to expose a massive cover-up of government secrets that spanned three decades and four U.S. Presidents. The two must overcome their differences as they risk their careers – and their very freedom – to help bring long-buried truths to light.

We’re so excited and proud to open our 2018 program with this film that brings together three of the most prodigious talents in cinema’s history, and tells a thrilling story that resonates so powerfully in today’s world.
