Coasting : Issue 10 April 2010
10 central coast • new south wales COASTING ENTERTAINMENT ENJOYMENT: Beth Hunter in the foyer of the historic Avoca Beach Picture Theatre. Picture by Aaron Brown ® Interview with a Name: Beth Hunter Role: Owner (with husband Norman) of Avoca Beach Picture Theatre. Q: How long have you been watching movies? A: All my life, of course! As a child it was always such an event -- arriving at one of the lavishly adorned picture palaces with plush velvet curtains, gold trim and extravagant décor... such a sense of occasion that always created much anticipation. Q: First movie you can remember seeing at a cinema? A: There are a number of very clear and happy memories. I remember lining up to see Paint Your Wagon, with Lee Marvin and Clint Eastwood, here at Avoca Beach Picture Theatre. That day certainly left a positive impression. Gene Wilder's Willy Wonker and the Chocolate Factory is another great film I just love. Q: Favourite three movies of all time? A: Only three? Impossible! I'll start with some of the most amazing foreign films -- Departures, As It Is In Heaven, Angel-A, After Midnight, I've Loved You So Long, The Lives of Others, After the Wedding, Black Book and the incredible My Name is Khan. And then some English- speaking films that I would have to include are Into the Wild, Moon, Romeo and Juliet, Moulin Rouge and Babel. Q: If you were stuck on a desert island (with a perfectly functioning cinema, of course) and had only one movie musical to watch for the rest of your life, what movie would you choose and why? A: A deserted island is one of my favourite places to be stuck. However, I would love to have with me Across the Universe with the most wonderful versions of Beetle songs. I find the songs irresistible. They totally draw me in. ORIGINAL: Gene Wilder in Willy Wonker and the Chocolate Factory (1971).
