Thank you to all 371 of you who came along to our opening night screening of DOCTOR STRANGE on Monday. And for those of you keeping count, yes, that was most definitely a full house!
Sadly, there were quite a few people who had to be turned away at the door before the film even started. So, as per our re-screening policy – but mostly because we don’t want anyone to miss out – we’re going to do it all over again this Sunday at 7 PM. And in case you were wondering, this screening will also be FREE for all to attend!
DATE: Sunday 19 February, 2017
TIME: 7 PM start; doors open for entry from 6:30 PM
Tickets not required. Entry is open to anyone and everyone, and on a first come, first served basis.
So whether you missed out or just want to see it again, come along and bring all of your friends to experience Marvel’s latest blockbuster on the BIG screen at the ANU Film Group.
