161 Battery picture theatre at Nui Dat, circa 1968-1969

Makeshift picture theatre set up by 161 Battery, RNZA at Nui Dat, circa 1968-1969. Most units set up their own outdoor picture theatre for use when they were in camp. You brought your own chair normally, and wet nights and the odd enemy mortar attack made watching a movie quite interesting.
