** NO GUESTS SCREENINGS THIS WEEK: FORD V FERRARI, JUDY **
FREE SCREENINGS NEXT WEEK
Fortunately, you won’t have to wait long until screenings kick off for our new season – just two days, in fact!
Our Autumn 2020 programme kicks off on Monday 17 February with a FREE screening of KNIVES OUT. This encore screening of the all-star whodunit screens as part of O-Week, courtesy of the ANU Students’ Association.
And if one free screening isn’t enough, the ANU Disabilities Students Association is also partnering with us on a free sensory screening of JUMANJI: THE NEXT LEVEL on Wednesday 19 February. Sensory-friendly screenings are intended to provide a safe environment for all by reducing sensory stimuli for those who may be sensitive to it, so this screening of the film will feature dimmed lighting (i.e. not fully off), reduced volume levels, and on-screen subtitles.
JUMANJI: THE NEXT LEVEL will also screen as part of our members-only programme on Saturday 29 February at 5 PM.
Doors will open for both screenings at 7 PM, with the film commencing at 7:30 PM. Both screenings are open to anyone to attend – no membership is required – so spread the word and invite everyone you know along to check out Australia’s biggest and best film society for free!
• MON 17 FEB @ 7:30 PM: KNIVES OUT (M, 130 mins)
• WED 19 FEB @ 7:30 PM: JUMANJI: THE NEXT LEVEL – SENSORY SCREENING (PG, 123 mins)
Stay tuned next week for more updates on the rest of our screenings for the week, including FROZEN II, PORTRAIT OF A LADY ON FIRE, THE GENTLEMEN and COOL RUNNINGS. New memberships and renewals for our Autumn season are available prior to any screening or online at www.anufg.org.au/join
