Free Preview Screening - Cairns

All tickets have now been allocated. Thank you for your interest.

In partnership with Event Cinemas, RSL Queensland is pleased to invite you to a free preview screening of Danger Close: The Battle of Long Tan.

Late afternoon, 18 August 1966, South Vietnam: For three and a half hours, in the pouring rain, amid the mud and shattered trees of a rubber plantation called Long Tan, Major Harry Smith (Travis Fimmel) and his dispersed company of 108 young and mostly inexperienced Australian and New Zealand soldiers are fighting for their lives, holding off an overwhelming force of 2,000 battle-hardened Viet Cong and North Vietnamese soldiers. With their ammunition running out, their casualties mounting and the enemy massing for a final assault each man begins to search for his own answer, and the strength to triumph over an uncertain future with honour, decency and courage. 

Please be aware that the film contains realistic depictions of combat and violence which may distress some members of our community. If you think you may be affected, please consider carefully before taking up this offer.
