General Admission
Unclassified 15+
89 Mins | Canada

Robin, an androgynous newcomer at school, defies the binary norms of a single-sex sports team just as Before I Change My Mind breaks the usual tropes of gender on film. This well-crafted, exciting story chooses to explore themes of personal growth and motivations for defiance, rather than treading a well-worn path of brutish bullying. Robin befriends the boys, develops feelings for the rebellious troublemaker Carter, and takes the audience on a voyage of high school drama, high emotion, 1980’s flair, and thought provoking comedy. Director Trevor Anderson also shines with over the top exuberance as a local am-dram maestro, corralling the teens into appearing in a hilarious synth-pop musical called ‘Mary Magdalene: Video Star,’ a playful pastiche of Jesus Christ Superstar.

The Rooftop Cinema will host you with a fabulous bar and sausage sizzle (with vegan options) from 7:00pm. Screenings commencing at sundown (approximately 8:30pm). Enjoy a fine selection of cheese, crackers and goodies supplied by The Little Social – available for pre-purchase below, ready for collection when you arrive!

Rooftop Cinema is an outdoor event with picnic-style seating – attendees are encouraged to bring rugs and blankets.

Food and drinks will be available from the Rooftop Cinema bar. No external food or alcohol is permitted.
