Spring Season Begins + Win Tickets to DANGER CLOSE

24th July, 2019

Just one day to go until our new Spring season begins with our FREE screening of AVENGERS: ENDGAME, which just this week officially overtook AVATAR to become the biggest film of all time!

Doors will open from 7 PM for entry, for a 7:30 PM film start – or until all 305 seats in the cinema are filled, whichever occurs first. Needless to say, this screening will be a busy one and current members may wish to see the film at our members-only screening next week on Friday 2 August instead to avoid the crowds.

The week then continues with a bevy of Australian hits, including a must-see documentary for all ages, and a trippy arthouse sci-fi thriller from French director Claire Denis.

The surviving Avengers must assemble once more to undo the devastating events of INFINITY WAR and defeat Thanos once and for all, no matter the cost.

• FRI 26 JULY @ 7:30 PM: TOP END WEDDING (M, 102 min) + CELESTE (M, 106 min)

In TOP END WEDDING, an engaged couple have just ten days to pull off their dream wedding in the Northern Territory, but must first locate the bride-to-be's missing mother in this romantic comedy.

Then, in CELESTE (at approx. 9:15 PM), a widowed opera diva (Radha Mitchell) finds her retirement in Far North Queensland complicated by the arrival of her late husband's adult son.

• SAT 27 JULY @ **5 PM**: 2040 (G, 92 min)

A visual letter from a father to his young daughter showing her what the world could look like if we used technology available today to save the environment. Directed by Damon Gameau (THAT SUGAR FILM).

A father (Robert Pattinson) and his daughter are the last survivors of a space mission, and must unravel the mystery of what happened to their crew in this challenging arthouse sci-fi thriller.


Thanks to Transmission Films, we have tickets to give away to DANGER CLOSE: THE BATTLE OF LONG TAN, a new Australian war epic.

In August 1966 in South Vietnam, a company of 108 young and inexperienced Australian and New Zealand soldiers fight to hold off an overwhelming force of over 2,000 soldiers. With casualties mounting, and the enemy amassing for a final assault, each man begins to search for the strength to triumph over an uncertain future.

Starring Travis Fimmel, Luke Bracey and Richard Roxburgh, and directed by Kriv Stenders (RED DOG), the film is in cinemas from August 8. You can view its trailer by CLICKING HERE
