Westgate Flicks operates in partnership with Vic’s Flicks

Vic’s Flicks is a not-for-profit organization. Its aim is to bring the Classic Movies of the Golden Age of Hollywood to special groups of people and it does this free of charge.  Vic’s Flicks aim is to assists Life Style Co-coordinators and Careers at aged care services, nursing homes and other community organizations to present these classic movies on a big screen. It does this by loaning free of charge its services, it's fully tested equipment and it's very large movie collection. 

Our audiences are mainly the elderly and others who can appreciate and who deserve to enjoy these great old movies. We do not show movies to the general public. Please note that the responsibility for showing the movies and the welfare of audiences lies with the facility/organization where the movie is being shown and the appropriate level of staff must be provided at all times. 

Movies from America, England and Australia make up the bulk of our collection.  The Golden Age of Hollywood has produced some great classic movies. We have a large range of movies across all genres from Action and Adventure, Comedy, Drama, Film Noir, Horror, Musical, Sci-Fi, and Western to Romance. All movies have been donated or purchased in Australia or overseas. Some are rare classics and some were purchased as a VHS and converted to DVD for easy showing. The collection also includes some silent movies.  We are continuously adding to our collection so if anyone would like to donate old movies that are in good order please let us know.


The movies shown at Westgate Flicks are shown on an 8ft (approx 2.4 mts) screen so if you intend to donate any,  the quality needs to be good.

 

There are not many theatres that show these classic movies anymore. Vic’s Flicks brings Hollywood to the Community! That's our aim and that is our passion.

YARNS & THREADS

Established in 1952, the Pascoe Vale Uniting Boys' Club is an acitivity of the church, managed by a committee, which teaches gymnastic skills and promotes the development of boys into respected members of our community.

The Club’s aim is to improve the strength, coordination, balance and teamwork of each

gymnast in a non-competitive, safe and inclusive manner.  The gymnastics performed are conducted under the guidance of volunteer Leaders, who themselves were once junior members of the Club.

There are four levels based on age with activities undertaken including: games, mat work,

trampette, box horse, parallel bars, climbing ropes and team-building activities. The Club also

offers external activities including ‘Bounce’ nights, Police/Fire Station visits, camps and family

friendly events.

The volunteer nature of the Club allows it to provide a low-cost program.

The Club operates every Monday evening during school terms (start time: 6:30 pm) in the

Pascoe Vale South Uniting Church Hall on the corner of Westgate Street and Cumberland Road
in 
Pascoe Vale South 3044.

DIDI BAHINI SAMAJ

Didi Bahini Samaj Victoria (DBSV) is a Nepalese women’s organization, formed in 2012 by a group of Nepalese women living in Victoria, Australia.  DBSV was the first Nepalese women’s organization in Victoria, Australia.  The primary concept in establishing DBSV was to provide a common forum for all Nepalese women living in Victoria to discuss issues related to immigrant women and strengthen support networks.  It was anticipated through discussions, publications, celebrations, programs and activities would evolve. Additionally, DBSV is also committed to supporting women in Nepal in the area of health and wellbeing. 

The overall aim of DBSV is to facilitate the participation of Nepalese women in social, economic, cultural and developmental activities for the purpose of improving women’s quality of life.

To achieve this primary aim, DBSV is committed to focusing on the following key roles: 

  • Provide a forum for women to share ideas, knowledge, skills and experiences;

  • Establish a system of supporting women in need;

  • Create a forum for celebrating women related cultural opportunities, festivals, and events;

  • Explore opportunities for women’s participation through linking with other organizations for up-skilling, building confidence, addressing related issues and capacity building;

  • Develop a sense of active participation among women to contribute to wider society;

  • Raise fund as appropriate to support programs and projects to help women in need in Nepal.

DBSV works collaboratively with other Nepalese organizations, communities groups, multicultural agencies and individuals to promote women’s empowerment and enhanced quality of life. We are very open to receive your support in any forms and constructive feedback.
