Entry to the above attractions is included in general admission charges. Here's what will be showing in NSM Cinema Sport In March, 2013:
Formula 1 Racing
The film is a poignant reminder of life in Melbourne during another era and poses a stark contrast to the sport of Formula 1 today.
Featuring original footage of the 1953 race, including some rare film uncovered in the National Film and Sound Archive in Canberra, along with original photographs and interviews with a number of people involved in the event.
The documentary takes us back to a time when motorsport was possibly considered "romantic".
