Meal Tickets – Exclusive one-off screening
Join us at Dendy Cinemas Coorparoo for an exclusive one-off screening of acclaimed documentary, Meal Tickets.
A band of best friends, a roadie that wanted to be a rockstar, a documentary ten years in the making.
Director Mat de Koning captures the rollercoaster journey of a young Perth band, the Screwtop Detonators, their manager Dave Kavanagh (an ex-mentor to The Libertines) and their one-time roadie, Will Stoker, as they grapple with the music industry’s long road to the top. Initially ambitious and eager for fame and fortune, their aspirations change over time as they individually discover what truly matters in life.
“On the surface, Meal Tickets is a primer on the music industry’s evolution, but beneath the lure of stardom it draws on the struggle you men have to define the place in life…” – Craig Mathieson, Sydney Morning Herald
“At times painfully raw, capturing the unalloyed fears, insecurities and jealousies of a young band on the road and at home.” – Travis Johnson, FILMINK
“It’s intoxicating, I felt like I was living it.” – Robert Connolly, Producer/Director
