Locks of Love are a world-wide phenomenon—lovers from Paris, Rome and Florence to Seoul, Moscow, and even Wollongong, who have etched their names into padlocks, and adorned fences, gates and bridges around the world. Sadly, in Canberra’s case, the locks on the Carillion Bridge will meet their end this weekend.
But, there is still a chance to see Locks of Love on the big screen prior to the national release of the film on DVD on 16 February. Starring Lorraine Bayly, Aaron Jefferey, Les Hill , Inge Hornstra, Kathryn Beck and a host of other well-known Australian stars, padlocks is the theme that locks 11 stories together.
The location for the padlocks is a set-piece in Glebe Park, Canberra—a purpose built gate which had to be moved at the end of each shoot.
To celebrate Valentine’s Day, there will be two special screenings:
- NSW residents can enjoy some cheese and crackers while watching Locks of Love at the Avoca Beach Cinema, Avoca on 13 February at 7pm. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with key crew and cast, including actress Inge Hornstra (McLeod’s Daughters), producer Janine Kaiser and writer Rebecca Fillipczyk.
- ACT locals can watch Locks of Love at the Palace Cinema in New Acton, Canberra on 15 February at 6:30pm. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with key crew and cast, including director Christian Doran and Kris Kerehona.
