And we’re off! Thank you to everyone who came along and joined us to kick off screenings for 2022 on Monday – it was great to see so many people back in the cinema again after so many months out of action.
But it’s just the beginning and we’ve got a big week of films coming right up, including the first of our 2022 Best Picture nominees with the 10x Oscar-nominated DUNE, animated musical sequel SING 2, Edgar Wright’s trippy horror-thriller LAST NIGHT IN SOHO, and the controversial, 8x AACTA-award winning drama NITRAM.
As a friendly reminder, please remember to abide by our COVID-19 safety rules as a condition of entry into screenings. This includes wearing a mask at all times while inside the cinema (except when actively eating or drinking) and continuing to check in using the Check In CBR app upon arrival. Our full COVID-19 safety rules can be found at www.anufg.org.au/covid
Please also note that pre-registration for ANUFG screenings is no longer required for screenings in 2022.
