WARWICK moviegoers will have the opportunity to see the Academy Award-winning movie Life of Pi this Thursday as part of an advanced screening.

The event is being organised by the Warwick Rotary morning club and includes refreshments and drinks before the movie.

President Peter Rodeck said this was a wonderful opportunity to see a first-class movie, have some pizza and a wine or a beer, and help raise money for the worldwide eradication of polio.

"The complete worldwide eradication of polio has been a Rotary project for over 25 years," he said.

Life of Pi is a movie by director Ang Lee, about a young man who survives a disaster at sea and is hurled into an epic journey of adventure and discovery.

While cast away, he forms an amazing and unexpected connection with another survivor… a fearsome Bengal tiger.

The premiere is on December 6 at 6pm (refreshments) for 6.45 pm movie start.

Tickets $20 at Olsens Hardware and Rolly's Lolly Shop.

For more details or if you would like to make a donation to Polio Eradication directly contact Peter Rodeck 0408 154 478
