In R.I.P.D., a recently slain cop (Ryan Reynolds) joins a team of undead police officers working for the Rest In Peace Department and is partnered with a lawman from the 1800s (Jeff Bridges) in order to find his murderer.

Then, in a special 30th anniversary screening of MONTY PYTHON’S THE MEANING OF LIFE (at approx. 9:45 PM), the Monty Python comedy troupe take a look at life in all its stages in a series of satirical and hilarious sketches.

• Sat 16 Nov @ **7 PM**: TUBRO followed by PERCY JACKSON: SEA OF MONSTERS

In TURBO, a freak accident grants a garden snail the power of super-speed, and he sets off on an extraordinary journey to achieve his life-long dream: competing in the world's fastest race, the Indy 500.

Then, in PERCY JACKSON: SEA OF MONSTERS (at approx. 8:45 PM), the son of Poseidon and his demigod friends embark on an epic quest to the Sea of Monsters to stop an ancient evil from returning.

[NOTE: Saturday’s films replace THE SMURFS 2 and GROWN UPS 2, which were originally scheduled for November 16.]


The critically acclaimed documentary BLACKFISH, which recently screened at the Canberra International Film Festival, will be screening exclusively at Dendy Canberra from November 21 and we’ve got tickets to give away!

The film tells the gripping and tragic story of a performing orca whale that killed several people while in captivity, and explores the creature’s extraordinary nature, its cruel treatment by humans and the dangers of the sea-park industry.

For your chance to win an in-season double pass to the film, simply email info@anufg.org.au with your name, membership number (located underneath the barcode on your card) and the answer to the following question: ‘What was the title of the 1993 family film that also featured a captive orca whale?’

Entries close on Tuesday 19 November at 5 PM, with winners to be contacted via email and prizes to be collected from the Dendy Canberra box office.
