  • -- April 27, 2024, 7:30 pm: Movie- BEFORE DAWN (7.30pm)

    Our Soldiers Story of Survival, Hope and Redemption

    X-Press magazine 6.5/10 “A solid addition to the list of Australian war films, Before Dawn puts us in the muddy boots of the diggers in France.”

    Based on real life war diaries, Before Dawn is an epic retelling of one of Australia’s biggest victories during WW1. Jim Collins, a young man from the outback, leaves his family-run sheep station to join the ANZAC and fight on the western front with hopes of making a difference.

    Soon, the realities of the muddy, ruthless, and entirely unforgiving war takes its toll on Jim. As the men in the battalion are whittled away and hope becomes a distant memory, a final chance at redemption at the Battle of the Hindenburg Line, one of Australia’s greatest WW1 military victories. Jim must risk death or forever carry the burden of leaving yet another man behind.

    Find Your Purpose. Make A Difference

    The Observer 3/4 “ You can’t ignore the value of a film that finally makes you feel good about the world.”

    Hilary Swank leads this drama inspired by the true story of a hairdresser who single-handedly rallies an entire community to help a widowed father save his critically ill young daughter.

    Sharon Steves (Swank) is a fierce but struggling hairdresser in small-town Kentucky who discovers a renewed sense of purpose when she meets Ed Schmitt (Alan Ritchson), a widower working hard to make ends meet for his two daughters. With his youngest daughter waiting for a liver transplant, Sharon sets her mind to helping the family and will move mountains to do it. What unfolds is the inspiring tale of faith, everyday miracles, and ordinary angels.

    WRITERS: Meg Tilly, Kelly Fremon Craig
    ACTORS: Amy Acker, Alan Ritchson Hilary Swank, Nancy Travis, Tamala Jones, Drew Powell, Skywalker Hughes, Emily Mitchell

  • -- May 5, 2024, 4:30 pm: Movie- ONE LIFE (4.30pm)

    Based on the book ‘If It’s Not Impossible…’ by BARBARA WINTON

    Official Selection:
    Toronto International Film Festival
    BFI London Film Festival

    Radio NZ Dan Slevin "Sir Anthony Hopkins carries this moving drama about one of the 20th century’s unsung heroes."

    ONE LIFE tells the inspiring true story of Sir Nicholas ‘Nicky’ Winton, whose unsung endeavours on the eve of World War II saved more than 600 children from their doom. Nicky considered himself a banker, not a humanitarian. Yet when he visited a recently annexed Prague in 1938 and saw the state of the fleeing Jewish refugees, he did what he believed was the right thing to do – the thing that anyone would do – and dedicated himself to the cause. War was approaching, and it was a race against time. How many children could he liberate before it ran out?

    Fifty years later, it’s 1988 and Nicky is haunted by the fate of the children he wasn’t able to help. And so it’s not until he’s surprised by the survivors on live television that he can accept that when facing devastating atrocities, saving even one life is a victory, and the British public learn the truth about the hero hidden in their midst.

    DIRECTOR: James Hawes
    WRITER: Lucinda Coxon, Nick Drake

  • -- May 18, 2024, 4:45 pm: Movie- THE HOLDOVERS (4.45pm)

    2024 OSCAR winner Da’Vine Joy Randolph (Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role) with 2024 Golden Globe winner Paul Giamatti (Best Male actor) as a cranky history teacher at a prep school, forced to remain on campus over the holidays with a troubled student who has no place to go.

    STUFF/ WAIKATO TIMES Graeme Tuckett 5/5 stars "Da'Vine Joy Randolph (The United States vs Billie Holiday) takes on the role of chef and confidant Mary, and burns the screen down in a couple of key scenes. The Holdovers is a marvel."

    From acclaimed director Alexander Payne, THE HOLDOVERS follows a bad tempered instructor (Paul Giamatti) at a prestigious American school who is forced to remain on campus during Christmas break to babysit the handful of students with nowhere to go. Eventually he forms an unlikely bond with one of them -- a damaged, brainy troublemaker (newcomer Dominic Sessa) -- and with the school’s head cook, who has just lost a son in Vietnam (Da’Vine Joy Randolph).
