We would like to take this opportunity to thank Jackie Ostrowski of Barfoot and Thompson for helping FLICKS with some of our publicity expenses, Jackie funded our advertising flags that go up during the week when we are showing a film.
FLICKS @ LOPELL 2018
We have had capacity audiences to most of the films this year and many people who have never been to the theatre before. A big thanks to the distributors who are letting us have newly released titles to screen, giving us a great selection of films to include in our programme. The morning screenings have now got a good group of film fans coming along to have a coffee/tea and watch a film in the comfort of the Lopdell Theatre. We are trying to get the news out to mums, dads and caregivers that they can come and watch a movie in the morning whilst the kids are at school, therefore saving baby sitter fees and getting out in the evening...so pass the word around if you know anyone with young kids and can't get out at night.
Prices are reduced for the morning shows $12 and $10 for Senior/Student which includes tea/coffee and biscuits. No need to book, just turn up, doors open at 10am and films start at 10-30pm
Flicks has a great following of loyal patrons...and we have a reputation of putting events/films on that are unusual and high quality....we look forward to seeing you sometime.
NEW LASER PROJECTOR INSTALLED Jolie Hutchings (Lopdell Precinct) has upgraded the projection facilities that FLICKS uses for the film screenings, the new projector works on laser technology, not bulb and is virtuallly maintenance free. The picture quality will be greatly improved especially on HD movies...come and see the difference at our next screening.
Thanks to all of you who came to the special screening of 'Laya Project' and helped to raise much needed funds for the Sulawesi Earthquake Relief fund. (UNICEF) and a big thanks to Harold Monfils the director of the film for being at the screening, he had flown back a day early from his latest filming work in Malaysia to be at FLICKS for the event. Thanks to Jackie Ostrowski for sponsoring the publicity and Jolie Hutchings for the use of the theatre for the screening. Thanks to the Titirangi Theatre who donated the bar take to the fund, in all we raised $854 for UNICEF Sulawesi.
'The GLASS CASTLE'
WOW !!! was the one word from the audiences after watching the Glass Castle, a film, that for some reason has not featured in New Zealand Cinemas but was on my list. Some films are 'based on a true story' and often directors take and make all sorts of detours from the original threads when it comes to the re-telling on screen. Jeannette Walls talks about the film which is a memoir of the nomadic family life of her childhood and it was this interview that made me realise that this filmic account was from the heart and soul. Check this link to get an idea of the film..https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qsusT-ELIqk the trailer is on our website...This film is showing at PIHA on Saturday the 17th November 7-30pm Tickets $10
Treat yourself to a meal at the RSA or Bowling club and then come along to watch the movie.....see trailer on PAGE 2
'The ORCHESTRA CLASS'
What a wonderful film, possibly the best 'feel good' movie since 'The Intouchables' the French certainly know how to make films, a simple story, a predicatable end, and yet compelling viewing.
We will be taking a break after this fim until early December as the Theatre will be putting on their latest production
