Our Autumn 2023 season officially begins tonight with a free screening of one of 2022's most acclaimed, original and talked-about films!
Nominated for a leading 11 Oscars including Best Picture, EVERYTHING EVERYWHERE ALL AT ONCE follows Chinese-American immigrant Evelyn (Michelle Yeoh) who runs a struggling laundromat with her husband (Ke Huy Quan). During a meeting with a tax auditor (Jamie Lee Curtis), Evelyn’s world suddenly fractures and she discovers that she must ‘verse-jump’ into the lives of her parallel universe counterparts to save them all from a powerful being. As profound as it is profane, this metaphysical epic must be seen to be believed.
Entry to tonight’s screening is free and everyone – whether you’re a current member, former member or have never been a member at all – is welcome to attend. Doors will open from 7 pm for a prompt 7:30 pm film start, so don’t be late!
Note: we will be screening the re-released version of the film, which includes an introduction from the Daniels and an additional eight minutes of outtakes during the credits.
Although we’re already partway through the month, there is plenty to look forward to in February as part of our new Autumn 2023 season. The full programme can be found now at www.anufg.org.au/news/522 with memberships available for purchase at any screening or online at www.anufg.org.au/join
