What a lovely day!
Join us at the Rio Theatre on Saturday, January 25 for an all-day, all MAD MAX movie marathon to benefit Aussie Bushfire Relief. In celebration of Australia Day (January 26), we are ready to throw our support to our friends and loved ones in “the land down under” the best way we know how: By screening all four of George Miller‘s iconic dystopian classics – MAD MAX, THE ROAD WARRIOR, BEYOND THUNDERDOME and FURY ROAD – back-to-back, on the big screen, and dialed to 11. Get ready for trivia, raffles, a 50/50 draw, a Vegemite sandwich eating contest (naturally), and, most importantly, a chance to send some love, friendship, and dollar$ to those on the front lines of this environmental disaster.
Thanks to our many generous partners (including Warner Brothers and Park Circus/MGM) for their gracious consideration in support of this fundraising event, which will directly benefit the important work being done by the Australian Red Cross.
If you or your business would like to connect directly in regards to donating prizes for fundrasing purposes, please reach out to <email@example.com> with “Aussie Bushfire Promo” in the subject line.

MAD MAX: FURY ROAD (George Miller, 2015 / DCP / 120 mins / 14A) An apocalyptic story set in the furthest reaches of our planet, in a stark desert landscape where humanity is broken, and most everyone is crazed fighting for the necessities of life. Within this world exist two rebels on the run who just might be able to restore order. There’s Max, a man of action and a man of few words, who seeks peace of mind following the loss of his wife and child in the aftermath of the chaos. And Furiosa, a woman of action and a woman who believes her path to survival may be achieved if she can make it across the desert back to her childhood homeland.
Australian director George Miller managed to reboot his own iconic MAD MAX franchise with the triumphant 2015 release of the universally acclaimed FURY ROAD, a commercial and critical hit that went on to win numerous accolades, including six Oscars. Tom Hardy stars as the titular Mad Max Rockatansky alongside Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, and Hugh Keays-Byrne in this wildly imaginative and visually stunning post-apocalyptic dystopian desert fantasy.
