Snow Flower and the Secret Fan

This movie is from our archive and is not currently screening.

Inspired by the bestselling novel 'Snow Flower and the Secret Fan' by Lisa See, the film is a timeless portrait of female friendship. In 19th-century China, seven year old girls Snow Flower and Lily are matched as laotong or 'old sames' bound together for eternity. Isolated by their families, they furtively communicate by taking turns writing in a secret language, nu shu, between the folds of a white silk fan.

BENDIGO CINEMAS SET FOR MAJOR UPGRADE

Bendigo Cinemas is set to undergo a $6 million upgrade, thanks to Village Cinemas and its Joint Venture Partner.

The Bendigo Cinemas refurbishment will see the introduction of a brand new candy bar complex, new seating in theatres, and a number of other enhancements providing moviegoers with a world-class cinema experience for years to come.

These changes will add to the already state-of-the-art cinema experience offered at Bendigo Cinemas, including Dolby Surround Sound, first-class projection and stadium seating.

The redevelopment will begin soon, with works to be completed in stages and after hours to ensure the cinema complex remains open throughout the upgrade. Work on the upgrade is set to be complete by the end of the year.

For almost 40 years, Bendigo Cinemas has been bringing the magic of movies to locals.

Bendigo Cinemas first opened its doors in 1975 as The Golden Twin, screening the box office hit Jaws. The seven-screen cinema was renamed Bendigo Cinemas in 1997 and continues to showcase the latest release blockbuster films.
