Oscar Week at the Film Group

11th March, 2013

With four of this year's Best Picture nominees in a row, we can't think of a better time to join up if you haven't already done so!

Most of this week's films are 'No Guests' screenings too, so if you have friends who wish to come along, don't forget that we also have Weekly Memberships for sale. They cost only $15 and provides entry into all films a week from the date of purchase. Fantastic value for a fantastic week of films!

Without further ado, here's the line-up for Oscar week at the Film Group:

• Wed 13 Mar @ 8 PM: ARGO

A CIA specialist (Ben Affleck) comes up with a risky plan to extract American hostages from Iran: by posing as a film crew for a fake sci-fi movie. Winner of 3 Academy Awards in 2013, including Best Picture.


Winner of 4 Academy Awards, including Best Director (Ang Lee), LIFE OF PI follows a young man who survives a disaster at sea and is hurtled into an epic journey of adventure and discovery. Then, in THE SESSIONS, a paralysed man (John Hawkes) who wishes to lose his virginity seeks out a professional sex surrogate (Helen Hunt in her Oscar-nominated role) for help.

• Sat 16 Mar @ **7 PM**: BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD followed by ON THE ROAD

In the Oscar-nominated BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD, a six-year-old girl sets out from her magical community to find her long-lost mother. Then, in the star-studded film adaptation of Jack Kerouac's ON THE ROAD, three friends travel across the country and encounter people who impact their journey indelibly.
