Win tickets to THE PLACE BEYOND THE PINES + What's On This Week

29th April, 2013

We’ve got tickets to give away to a new film starring Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper, but first, here’s what’s screening at the Coombs Theatre this week:

• Tue 30 Apr @ 8 PM: THE PAPERBOY

In this steamy 1960s-set thriller, a reporter (Matthew McConaughey) returns to his Florida hometown to investigate a case involving a death row inmate (John Cusack), who he believes has been wrongly accused. Directed by Lee Daniels (PRECIOUS) and also starring Nicole Kidman and Zac Efron.

• Fri 3 May @ 8 PM: CLOUD ATLAS

An epic exploration of how the actions of individual lives impact one another in the past, present and future. Featuring an all-star cast including Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Hugo Weaving, Jim Broadbent and Hugh Grant, among many others, with each of them appearing in multiple roles across interconnected stories.

• Sat 4 May @ **7 PM**: ANNA KARENINA followed by THE MAN WITH THE IRON FISTS

In 19th century Russia, aristocrat Anna Karenina (Keira Knightley) breaks from her cold marriage to her husband (Jude Law) and enters into a life-changing affair with the affluent Count Vronsky (Aaron Taylor-Johnson). Directed by Joe Wright (PRIDE & PREJUDICE, ATONEMENT) and based on the classic novel by Leo Tolstoy.

Then, the action shifts to 19th century China in THE MAN WITH THE IRON FISTS, starring RZA, Russell Crowe and Lucy Liu. In this homage to classic kung-fu action flicks, warriors, assassins and a lone hero must unite amidst feuding factions to uncover a traitor who threatens to destroy them all.


Thanks to Dendy Cinemas and Roadshow Films, we have tickets to give away to preview screenings of the powerful new crime drama THE PLACE BEYOND THE PINES, starring Ryan Gosling, Bradley Cooper and Eva Mendes.

Directed by Derek Cianfrance (BLUE VALENTINE), the film explores the consequences of a motorcycle stunt rider’s (Gosling) fateful decision to commit a crime to support his lover (Mendes) and their newborn child. This puts him on a collision course with an ambitious local cop (Cooper), and the repercussions have a devastating impact on both of their families in the years following.

THE PLACE BEYOND THE PINES is in cinemas on May 9 and is also screening at the ANU Film Group on June 22, but here’s your chance to see it first.

Dendy will be holding preview screenings of the film this weekend, and we have four double passes to give away that are ONLY valid between FRIDAY 3 MAY and SUNDAY 5 MAY at Dendy Canberra.

For your chance to win, simply be in attendance by 8 PM at this Friday’s screening of CLOUD ATLAS. The passes will be distributed via a lucky draw to randomly selected members in attendance just before the film starts, so if you’d like to be in the running, make sure you’re there on time!
