Due to some unfortunate clashes with the ACT Government's upcoming Uncharted Territory Festival, we regret to inform you that we have been forced to cancel three of our upcoming screenings. The following films will no longer be screening as originally scheduled:
• LINOLEUM on Friday 7 July at 7:30 pm
• JASON AND THE ARGONAUTS on Saturday 8 July at 5 pm
• YOU HURT MY FEELINGS on Saturday 15 July at 5 pm
We apologise for any inconvenience and disappointment that these changes will cause, and are working hard to reschedule these films as part of our next season, which will commence on July 24. More on that to come next week.
Please also note that the 7:30 pm sessions on both Saturday 8 July (FAST X) and Saturday 15 July (THE INSPECTION) will be proceeding as normal. Only the 5 pm sessions on those days have been affected.
