"There should be no boundaries to human endeavour. We are all different. However bad life may seem, there is always something you can do, and succeed at. While there's life, there is hope". Stephen Hawkings

The Theory of Everything is a 2014 British film which is set at Cambridge University about the life of the great theoretical physicist, Stephen Hawkings. Hawkings is a world renown physicist whose theories changed the scientific outlook of the world. His life was greatly impacted by his diagnosis of Motor Neuron Disease, but his tenacity and determination to continue his work in the face of a great physical disability inspires millions to this day. Hawkings died on March 14, 2018, leaving a game changing legacy behind him. Mourners the world over lamented the loss of a great mind, and a warrior of peace. The Nimbin Bush Theatre is proud to present this great film as a gesture of love and respect for this inspiring man.

Directed by James Marsh and adapted from the memoir Travelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen by Stephen's wife, Jane Hawking, the film deals with Jane's relationship with her husband, his diagnosis of motor neurone disease and his groundbreaking work in physics. The film stars Eddie Redmayne as Hawkings, a role which saw him win an Academy Award for his sympathetic portrayal of this complicated modern genius.

While studying at Cambridge Stephen Hawkings speculated that black holes may have been part of the creation of the universe, and decided to write his thesis on the subject. Stephen presents his thesis to the examination board, arguing that a black hole created the universe in a Big Bang. It was a game changer in every sense.

While pursuing his research, Stephen's muscles begin to fail and he learns he has motor neurone disease and that he will be unable to talk, swallow, breathe, or move most of his body; and has approximately two years to live. After a tracheotomy he learnt to use a spelling board to communicate and received a computer with a built-in voice synthesiser and used it to write the book that changed the world, A Brief History of Time, which was an international best-seller.

See this movie on the big screen with big sound and be moved by the passion of one man and how he changed the world. The Cafe will be open serving delicious meals and coffee. BYO.
