Paranormal investigations, a 1970s Retro Revivals night featuring Martin Scorsese and Bruce Lee, and Edgar Wright/Simon Pegg/Nick Frost's Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy feature at the Film Group this week!
• Thu 26 Sep @ 8 PM: THE CONJURING
Famed paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren (Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga) are hired by a family to examine their farmhouse, and discover a spectral menace that threatens to destroy everyone involved. Directed by James Wan (SAW, INSIDIOUS).
• Fri 27 Sep @ 8 PM: MEAN STREETS followed by ENTER THE DRAGON
Our 1970s Retro Revivals double feature celebrates the 40th anniversaries of two significant cinematic milestones: the film that defined Martin Scorsese's signature style, and martial arts legend Bruce Lee's final film.
In director Martin Scorsese's MEAN STREETS, a small-time gangster (Harvey Keitel) struggles to survive on the streets of New York. Also featuring Scorsese's first collaboration with Robert De Niro.
Then, in ENTER THE DRAGON (at approx. 10 PM) Bruce Lee plays a martial artist who is tasked with spying on a reclusive crime lord during a tournament. The film was Lee’s final completed film prior to his death that same year.
• Sat 28 Sep @ **7 PM**: THE WORLD'S END followed by HOT FUZZ
In THE WORLD'S END, five friends reunite and return to their home town in an attempt to top their epic pub crawl from 20 years earlier, and unwittingly become humankind's only hope for survival. The final film in director Edgar Wright's Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy.
Then, revisit Wright's second film in the trilogy with the action-film parody HOT FUZZ (at approx. 9 PM), in which a top London cop (Simon Pegg) is involuntarily transferred to a quaint English village and discovers a sinister conspiracy afoot.
Have you left anything behind at a Film Group screening recently?
In case you weren't aware of it, our dedicated committee members stay behind after every screening to clean up rubbish and to collect lost property. Items of value are left with the Coombs Building or ANU Security, while other items are stored in our lost property cupboard at the theatre.
If you've lost anything recently, be sure to ask the Duty Manager on your way into any upcoming screening and we can check to see if it was picked up. We have an assortment of hats, jackets, pillows and other items currently being kept, and would be happy to return them to their respective owners.
