July 16-17: Movies at the Old School

Three Wise Cousins  

Saturday 16 July 8pm

Sunday 17 July 4.30pm 

Romantic comedy about a 22-year-old Samoan-Kiwi looking to impress a woman who only wants to go out with a ‘real island guy’. So, he journeys to Samoa to get advice from those who can teach him best – his cousins.

An independent, self-funded film shot on one camera, Three Wise Cousins has so far racked up more than $1 million at New Zealand, Australian, Pacific and US box offices – and delivered plenty of side-splitting laughter along the way.

Florence Foster Jenkins

Saturday 16 July 5.30pm

Meryl Streep is Florence Foster Jenkins, the 1930s-40s New York socialite who dreamed of becoming an opera singer despite being roundly ridiculed for her lack of rhythm, her lack of pitch, and her aberrant pronunciation. This true story comedy-drama is from director Stephen Frears (The Queen, Philomena) and co-stars Hugh Grant.

“Charming with moments of magic.” 3.5/5 stars. NZ Herald.

“…bright, bubbly and suitably ear-bursting biopic of surely the least gifted chanteuse ever to sell out Carnegie Hall.” Variety.
