cene S STRATHFIELD THE BEST IN ENTERTAINMENT INSIDE 12 FOOD My Kitchen Rules 13 BUSINESS Business Networking 17 WHAT'S ON IN NOVEMBER Music, theatre, arts... See box o ce hits for free By Bernadette Chua Instead of lugging around huge spools of lm, the only thing that projectionist Bob Gamblen carries around with him is a small computer disk -- and his projection screen. Movie enthusiast Gamblen has been running the popular Movies in the Park in Strath eld for the past decade, but has been working as a movie projectionist for the past 30 years. Whether it is an action-packed blockbuster, a soppy romantic comedy or an art-house lm, Movies in the Park in Strath eld has something to cater for all tastes. " e best part about se ing up these movies is the interaction you have with the audiences that come to watch them," he says. "I remember when we rst started showing the movies in Strath eld Park. We used 35mm lm so we had to keep on changing the spools." e lm veteran helped to establish the Chauvel Cinema in Paddington with a group of friends and later moved onto working at the Dendy Cinemas as a projectionist. "I've done a lot of work with the Australian Film Institute, but now I mainly run all the big movie festivals such as the Sydney Film Festival and Flickerfest," says Gamblen. "I rst discovered my passion for lms a er I started making a series of short lms with some friends." Born in South Australia, Gamblen began moving around Australia, gaining knowledge about lms and outdoor lm festivals before nally se ling in Sydney. "We opened co-ops in Melbourne and then in Sydney but now I've begun to mellow out," he says. "It is such a pleasure to run Movies in the Park at Strath eld." Although a keen advocate of art house lms, Gamblen will be o ering Strath eld residents a wide variety of lms from di erent genres during the up-coming season. "We usually source the movies from Village Roadshow which distributes movies so I always have a large selection," he says. "Another great part of the job is that you get to see a lot of movies and because everything is now digital, I don't have to change the spools all the time so I can relax and enjoy the movie." Movies at the Park screen at 8pm on selected Saturdays over the summer. Bring a blanket or chair. Entry is ee.
