Lindrum, the Australian dynasty is synonymous with five world class billiards champions in only four generations.
The sporting family began with Australia's first billiards champion Friedrich Wilhelm Von Lindrum in 1865 and continued for more than a century.
Frederick Lindrum II was crowned Australian Champion in 1887 and Frederick Lindrum III was named Australian Champion in 1908.
The three were later eclipsed by arguably Australia's greatest billiards player Walter Lindrum, who held the World Professional Billiards Championship from 1933 to 1950.
Finally, Horace Lindrum held Australia's first World Snooker Championship victory in 1952 and achieved an international touring career of more than 50 years in the sport.
The conquests and turbulence of the family are on show in Port Macquarie with a Majestic Cinemas and Australian Theatre Live screening, The Uncrowned King from 6.30pm on Monday, December 16.
Eldest daughter of Horace, author Dr Janne 'Jan' Lindrum has the arduous task of shaping the family history into print, film and theatre for the benefit of future generations.
"It's quite remarkable that there were five world class champions in only four generations in one family," she said.
"They were professional billiards champions in an era when players were equivalent to great matadors or opera singers that travelled the world.
"They were absolute heroes but the female sides of the family were enormously skilled as well and their story is there as well."
She admits it hasn't always been easy to move out of the family shadow and establish her own reputation.
"Obviously I knew my dad was a champion but I didn't know many things about the family that I came to know," she said.
"I don't know how I will feel seeing it on the big screen. It's a deeply and profoundly human story. It's a great Australian story and I hope people like it.
"I felt for a long time that I couldn't live up to what they achieved and I think a lot of children who grow up in a family like this one feel quite fragile.
"Going to university and volunteering gave me to confidence to make my own path and do good things in the community."
Dr Lindrum said she would continue the family tradition of dedication to charity work by contributing funds from the cinema screening to NSW Rural Fire Service crews.
Proceeds will also be contributed to a bushfire appeal for those who have lost family members, homes and memories.
"Bushfires have certainly put a lot of strain on firefighters and also families who have had to pack cars to be ready to evacuate. The stress that goes with that is enormous," said Dr Lindrum.
"When I saw what is happening with the bushfires I thought we can do some good here. We decided all the proceeds can go to the appeal."
The show includes a 15 minute question and answer session with Janne Lindrum.
The Uncrowned King screens at the Majestic Cinema Port Macquarie from 6.30pm on Monday, December 16. Tickets are $20.
