Peter Jackson's documentary They Shall Not Grow Old will play at the TET Kings Theatre this Anzac Day.

Theatre manager Helen Lindley says the movie was popular when it was screened last year in Stratford.

"We showed it on November 11, Armistice Day, and it is nice to be able to show it again on Anzac Day itself.

Helen says the movie has been well received by film critics and movie goers.


"The movie really does bring the reality of the war to the big screen. It was created using original footage of World War I from the Imperial War Museum's archives, alongside audio from BBC and IWM interviews of British servicemen who fought in the conflict. A lot of the footage used had never been seen before."

Helen says the Anzac Day screening will include a feature from Peter Jackson at the end of the movie.

They Shall Not Grow Old screens at Stratford's TET Kings Theatre at 2pm on April 25. Rating: RP16 (Graphic content may disturb). Run Time: 2hrs 27mins.
