Due to distributor release date changes, two of our upcoming films have had to be replaced, while another has had its start time pushed back. Please see below for more details and be sure to note down the changes on your calendar to avoid missing out!
1. ‘TABLE 19’ REPLACING ‘THE WALL’ ON MAY 11
Originally scheduled for Thursday 11 May, THE WALL is now no longer being released until August this year. In its place on the same date, we will instead be screening the ensemble romantic comedy, TABLE 19, starring Anna Kendrick, Stephen Merchant, Lisa Kudrow and Craig Robinson.
The film follows Eloise (Kendrick), who is relieved of her maid of honour duties at her oldest friend’s wedding after having been dumped by the best man. Deciding to hold her head up high, she attends the wedding anyway and finds herself seated with fellow unwanted guests at the dreaded Table 19. As she gets to know the fellow denizens of her table, she discovers that friendships – and even a little romance – can happen under the most unlikely circumstances.
TABLE 19 will screen on Thursday 11 May at 7:30 PM.
2. ‘MAHANA’ REPLACING ‘A MONSTER CALLS’ ON JUNE 10
In addition to this, A MONSTER CALLS now no longer has a confirmed release date and is therefore unavailable for us to screen on Saturday 10 June as scheduled. In its place as the first feature that night will be MAHANA, a New Zealand drama from acclaimed director Lee Tamahori (ONCE WERE WARRIORS).
Based on the novel from the author of WHALE RIDER, the film tells the tale of two Māori sheep-shearing families off the rural East coast of New Zealand in the 1960s who are sworn enemies battling for supremacy. But when the youngest son of the Mahana family sets out to unravel the truth behind the longstanding feud, he inadvertently risks the fragile cohesion of their tight-knit society.
MAHANA will screen on Saturday 10 June at 7 PM, followed by LOVING (the night’s original second feature) at approximately 8:45 PM.
3. ‘QUEEN OF KATWE’ ON JUNE 3 NOW STARTING AT 7:30 PM
Finally, due to Disney’s new live-action version of BEAUTY AND THE BEAST being lengthier than expected, the scheduled start time of QUEEN OF KATWE on Saturday 3 June has been pushed back.
Originally intended to start at 7 PM following BEAUTY AND THE BEAST at 5 PM, QUEEN OF KATWE will instead be commencing at 7:30 PM on the same date.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused by these changes and hope that you will enjoy the replacement films. We will also endeavour to screen THE WALL and A MONSTER CALLS as part of future programmes where possible.
