* Movies

Opening this week

"The Dish" (PG-13) - It's July 1969, the eve of the Apollo 11 launch, and NASA has turned to Parkes, New South Wales, home of one of the world's most powerful satellite dishes, to provide back-up power for the history-making mission. Gearing up for the launch is the cardigan-sporting director of operations, Cliff Buxton, and his motley crew of electronics whiz kids, including the ever-acerbic Mitch and the shy Glenn. Sam Neill, Patrick Warburton, Roy Billing and Bille Brown star in this comedy.
