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
For the next few films we are adding an earlier evening screening as well as the regular 8-15pm shows. A lot of people do not like being out too late at night and this earlier show might take some pressure off the demand for seats at the 8-15 show when on some occasions we have sold out and turned people away. Depending on the running time of the film this early evening screening will start at either 5-30pm or 6pm. Check details on NEXT FILM PAGE
'Pecking Order' certainly knocked all other films off the audience numbers perch !! attracting the biggest audiences of any film shown to date !! thanks to all those who came and enjoyed this wonderful look at life in the world of chicken breeding and poultry politics.... a perfect balance of humour and conflict. A week later I showed it at the Settlers Hall in Oratia and again the biggest audience for the year....and people loved it. Thanks to Vendetta Films for letting us screen the film.
We have been asked to put on a special screening (the first in New Zealand) of a film that is going to be touring New Zealand with the film maker....'THE BENTLEY EFFECT' Sunday 24th September at 7pm Filmed over five years, The Bentley Effect documents the highs and lows of the battle to keep a unique part of Australia gasfield-free. This timely story of a community’s heroic stand shows how strategic direct action and peaceful protest from a committed community can overcome industrial might and political short-sightedness. It celebrates the non-violent ‘Eureka Stockade’ of our time and chronicles one of the fastest growing social movements we have ever witnessed. Introduced by the film-maker Brendan Shoebridge. Admission $12 (cash sales on door) Telephone bookings on 818 2489 or text 0210 222 5558

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.
