This feature length (87 minute) independent documentary on the amphitheatre was completed by Tempest Productions in early 2015. The world premiere on 4th July 2015 at the Revelation film festival was SOLD OUT.

Jenny Crabb & Susie Conte, film’s directors, will provide a short commentary prior to the screening at the Kookaburra. And I’ll be there, too.

World Premiere of Documentary Sold-out

Today Tempest Productions had a SELL OUT audience for the 87 minute independent documentary Parkerville Amphitheatre: Sets, Bugs and Rock n Roll.

Having seen two in-progress versions and now the finished product I found it really grew on me. And not just because I feature in it!

I’m too close to the story to really comment on it. Suffice to say: people are raving about it.

There are two more screenings in the Revelation Perth International Film Festival:

4pm Saturday 11 July 2015 (Northbridge), and 12 noon Sunday 12 July 2015 (Fremantle). Get your tickets NOW because they will also sell out. See

Feel free to make a comment.

Amphitheatre doco in Revelation Film Festival

Years in the making: this independent 87 minute documentary called “Parkerville Amphitheatre: Sets, Bugs & Rock n Roll” will be screened at three cinemas around Perth on 4, 11 & 12 July 2015 (Luna Palace, Cinema Paradiso & Luna on SX).

Jenny & Susie of Tempest Productions have done a great job with this massive project to collect material and interview lots of people who were associated with my late father, John Joseph Jones (1930-2000), and his amphitheatre (1966-2001). Kickstarter crowd funding helped them buy rare ABC television footage from the 1970s. They’ve fashioned a compelling story out of all the twists and turns, the big and little dramas, the private family story, and the very public story.

See a brief history of the amphitheatre and links to the doco and how to buy tickets, plus some myth busting at:

The official name of the amphitheatre was The Seddon Vincent Memorial Theatre for Australian Playwrights.
