If you attended our Annual General Meeting last month, you would have received some exciting news about the future of the ANU Film Group. If you didn't attend our AGM, shame on you, but we figured it was about time to let you in on the news too…
The ANU Film Group will be moving to a new theatre in early 2019!
The ANU is in the process of building us a new home – a purpose-built cinema with all-new cinema-style seating and projection equipment – that will be located in the heart of the Kambri precinct, the redeveloped area formerly known as Union Court.
In addition to our new theatre, the Kambri precinct will also be home to new teaching and learning spaces, student accommodation, health and recreational facilities, a swimming pool, a concert and performing arts auditorium, restaurants, fast food outlets, a book store, a supermarket, and underground car parking – with the ANU Film Group in the middle of it all!
The current plan is for us to move into the new theatre in time for the start of screenings in Semester One 2019. We’ll be sure to keep our members updated on the progress of the construction, as well as any significant new developments, going forward.
With that in mind, we anticipate that many of you will have a lot of questions about the new theatre, so we have prepared a list of Frequently Asked Questions (and answers) that will hopefully address most of your initial enquiries. You can find this at www.anufg.org.au/newtheatre
If you have any questions that weren’t answered in the FAQ, please feel free to get in touch – email us, call us, message us on Facebook – and we’ll do our best to address them, bearing in mind that we may not have all the answers at this early stage either.
Needless to say, the next few months will be an exciting time for us and we look forward to taking all of you along on this journey!
