National Film And Sound Archive, Canberra Reviews
I was a bit disappointed...I thought there would be more displays ....... what was there was very interesting and we spent an enjoyable couple of hours there 2 movie theatres and if you’re lucky they’re playing something interesting..... the 60s and 70s tv shows brought back memories .... overall we had a good time but we just expected a bit more.....
Great display celebrating the life of Heath Ledger. Cafe is adequate and has good food choices. Would be nice to see a wider display of objects and additional galleries open to the public.
So many great things to see here. It's a shame that they had so much funding taken off them.but they are doing the most amazing job with the funding that they do have. You need to go to some amazing films etc to help them out.
Very well curated exhibition of the life and work of Heath Ledger, I would have happily paid to see it. I thoroughly enjoyed it and will be returning for future exhibitions.
