PHSG Fundraiser Movie Gone With The Wind

Home > Perth > Win Stuff | Volunteering | Fundraisers | Cinema | Charity

The Perth Homeless Support Group (PHSG), will host a Genuine Blockbuster Movie Fundraiser at the intimate Backlot Studios, on Sunday, September 22, 2019 from 3:00pm. Celebrate the 80th Anniversary of Gone With The Wind with a special screening of this epic landmark movie in the comfort of your luxury leather seats, within this 50-seat state-of-the-art private cinema.

The proceeds of Gone With The Wind go directly to the Perth Homeless Support Group, a not-for-profit charity organisation, to purchase of food and toiletries for the homeless on the streets of Perth, Western Australia.

Gone With The Wind

Margaret Mitchell's classic tale of love and war, is brought to life in this carefully restored print, emphasising the original, brilliant three strip Technicolor and stereo sound.

This Epic American Civil War drama centres on the life of a strong-willed southern belle Scarlett O'Hara (Vivien Leigh). Beginning with her idyllic life on a sprawling plantation, the film follows her survival through the tragic history of the South during the Civil War and Reconstruction, and her tangled love affairs with Ashley Wilkes (Leslie Howard) and Rhett Butler (Clark Gable).

Get a group together and have some fun looking for a character you identify with, and reveal something about yourself. With 151 cast members, there is enough for everyone, three times over. Watch out for the performance of Olivia de Havilland as Melanie Hamilton and Hattie McDaniel as Mammy.

Book here for your classic movie experience

You can purchase your tickets here, at just $25.00 per person and enjoy an epic time at the movies while helping to support the homeless in Perth. The Backlot Studios, 21 Simpson Street, West Perth. Moreover, all proceeds from the movie will provide essential items to feed the homeless.

Gone With The Wind is the sort of classic movie experience that this intimate cinema takes advantage of. You may even feel the heat as Atlanta burns.

MGM, with no CGI in those days, spectacularly captured the burning of Atlanta on seven Technicolor cameras. The flames engulfed 40 acres as remnants of some old movie sets burnt down. Flames reaching over 500 feet high, required more than 15,000 gallons of water to douse the inferno.

Dress up and win a prize

Can you match this moustache?

As usual, door prizes, and the ever-popular raffles, ensure a PHSG event is always an epic experience. There are prizes for the best dressed, so have some extra fun and come in your finest civil war outfits. I wonder how many men can turn up sporting a moustache to rival Clark Gable (real of fake).

The doors and bar are open at 3:00pm, and the movie starts at 3:45pm. As this is a long movie, you will experience an intermission as in the original showing.

Some great movies coming up . . .

Activities and events are added regularly, so stay connected and do not miss the fun. How about joining their mailing list and receiving the news first hand.

By seeing the needs of the homeless and those at risk of being homeless, the Perth Homeless Support Group Inc (PHSG) adopts a 'hands-on' approach acting in a way that makes a difference to their situation.

Making a difference

PHSG volunteers meet every Sunday from 9:30am, at Wellington Square, East Perth, where the homeless can collect Care Packs (food and toiletries), and seasonal items (beanies, socks, blankets). If you would like to donate or contribute items for their Care Packs, please email to arrange drop-off and pick up.

Surprise yourself and see how many ways you can assist this small charity with a big heart. Why not volunteer, and discover how you can put your skills to work and make a difference?

Vans needed for the homeless

PHSG feed, clothe and support over 200 homeless people each week. This is a massive effort by their volunteers, but with homeless numbers growing each week, and the volume of equipment and supplies being transported means that two vans are needed. You can make a difference by clicking here and help to make this happen.

As a registered charity all donations to PHSG over $2.00 are tax deductible.

Wait, book now before the seats are gone

Book now and ensure your seat for this for this genuine blockbuster for only $25.00 per person. Remember, drinks and enticing treats are available from the bar, before the movie and at intermission.
