A BIG thank you to you all for such great support for FLICKS this year. We have had capacity audiences to most of the films and many people who have never been to the theatre before. Also 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. Prices are reduced for these morning shows $12 and $10 for Senior/Student which includes tea/coffee and biscuits. No need to book for these morning screenings just turn up, doors open at 10am and films start at 10-30pm
Well..'Lady Macbeth' failed to draw an audience and has qualified for our smallest audience ever for any film we have ever shown !! and this despite its rave reviews from every film critic worldwide.. I know some people did not come as they thought it was a Shakespeare play...and they 'did not like Shakespeare' also someone pointed out that the school holidays might have effected our audience but it was still very puzzling. Those who did come were so impressed with the film, the dark, stark mood and brilliant acting from the twenty one year old Florence Pugh, I think we will be seeing more of her in the future. Here are some comments from critics who saw it.
"This film was absolutely wonderful- so tragic, moving, deep and heartbreaking"
"An absolutely brilliant film, with an amazing performance by Florence Pugh, and an outstanding use of scenery."
"Director William Oldroyd has breathed some fresh air to the staid old period drama, comfortably ratcheting mood and tension without any musical score"
"[Florence Pugh] delivers one of the truly mesmerising and memorable performances of the year as the compelling, conniving and at times chilling Katherine

Thank you for supporting FLICKS and even if you only managed to get to one or two films it all helps keep the show on the road. Thanks to all of you who come time and time again, we have tried to give a good range of films, catering for a wide audience, docos. dramas, thrillers, love stories and music based films. The biggest audience we had last year was for 'Where to Invade Next? Michael Moore's latest film which is now out on DVD for those who missed it. Another popular one was 'Trumbo' the true story of Dalton Trumbo the Hollywood script writer who was blacklisted for being a communist, played brilliantly by Bryan Cranston. 'The Carer' was another great drama and attracted good sized audiences. The biggest audience for a film this year (2017) was 'No Ordinary Sheila' the smallest audience ever (in 9 years) was LAdy Macbeth !!
