Origin theatre screening larger than life to help Bryce
STATE of Origin rugby league fans can enjoy a massive slice of the action tonight at Grafton's Saraton Theatre.
As a fundraiser for Lawrence spina bifida boy Bryce Cranney, the cinema is screening the big game in its main theatre.
Theatre manager Shelley Gilbert said fans were in for a treat watching the game on the big screen.
"You can see every elbow in every tackle, it's all there in front of you," she said.
Ms Gilbert and five other staff used game one of the series this year to road test the Saraton.
"It was perfect," she said. "Every tackle seemed harder than it really was."
Ms Gilbert said most of the money raised would go to help Bryce in his battle with his disease.
"We're aiming just to cover costs. Staff will be working for free, watching the football, then coming out during the break to serve," she said.
The night is strictly alcohol free.
