Lido Cinemas

Saturday 24 August 2pm

The Farewell arrives at Lido for a very special preview screening following its sold-out premiere at the Melbourne International Film Festival.

To celebrate the Australian release of film studio A24's latest indie cinema hit, Lido invites audiences to bring their Grandma and connect over this special story, which emphasises the importance of time spent together. We ❤️ Grandmas at Lido, so we're inviting them to come for FREE* to this special event preview. 

Afternoon tea will be served before the film so film-lovers and their grandmas can enjoy a cuppa and a bikkie together as well.

Beloved by critics and audiences alike when it premiered at Sundance earlier this year,The Farewell stars Awkwafina (Crazy Rich Asians, Oceans 8) and tells the story of a family who chooses not to tell their adored matriarch Nai Nai that she has been given only mere weeks left to live due to terminal cancer. They decide it's better to let her live out the rest of her days in blissful ignorance of this sad prognosis.
