The Buddy Holly Story comes to the Roxy

April 9, 2009

To celebrate World Parkinson’s Day on Easter Saturday, April 11, the Bingara and District Parkinson’s Support Group will be showing the Buddy Holly Story at the Roxy.

This is a powerful story of the early days of rock’n’roll and, when the film was produced in 1979, won rave reviews.

Gary Busey, portraying the role of Buddy Holly, won a Golden Glove as well as the National Society of Film Critics Award, also, in 1980 winning the US BAFTA Film Award. Joe Renzetti also won an Oscar in the same year for the Best Music in the film.

This is a moving film (all three lead characters cn really rock’n’roll) and is a story that can be enjoyed by the whole family.

The day will start at approximately 12 noon when our own famous muscos, Helen and Tony Cornish, will perform before the movie starts at 1.00pm.

Those of you that have seen the latest stage production of "Buddy" will really enjoy this film.

Afternoon tea will be supplied after the move. For catering purposes it would be appreciated if bookings could be made prior to the day.

Information on Parkinson’s disease will be available on the day also "surprises" and lucky ticket.

Come along and support our Parkinson’s Group. Bring the family along for a great day out.
