Munch - Exhibition on Screen - Jan 27

Directed by Ben Harding | 1h 30min 

Showtime: Thursday, Jan 27 at 10am

Tickets: $15 HERE or at the box office 30 minutes before showtime.


In 2013, all of Norway celebrated the 150th anniversary of the birth of Edvard Munch (1863 – 1944), one of the towering figures of modern art.

This has been hailed a “once-in-a-lifetime show”. Global interest was huge – not least as a result of one of his four The Scream paintings having recently set a public art auction record of $120 million. Many know Munch as the man who painted The Scream but his complete works are remarkable and secure his place as one of the greatest artists to have ever lived.

Munch 150 was co-hosted by the National Museum and the Munch Museum, both in Oslo. With 220 paintings on show, it brought together the greatest number of Munch’s key works in one place.

Once again, our film will be going behind-the-scenes to show some of the process of putting the exhibition together – as well as providing an in-depth biography of a man who lived from the mid-19th century right through to the German occupation of Norway in the Second World War. Special guests also offer their expert insight and knowledge to host Tim Marlow. A superb show and a fantastic event film.

Doors open 30 minutes before showtime.

Guess Who's Coming to Dinner - Feb 3

We're kicking off our first ever Black History Month Film Series on Thursday, February 3 at 7pm with the 1967 film Guess Who's Coming to Dinner starring Spencer Tracy, Sidney Poitier, and Katharine Hepburn.

Tickets Coming Soon!

When Joanna Drayton, a free-thinking white woman, and black doctor John Prentice become engaged, they travel to San Francisco to meet her parents. Matt Drayton and his wife Christina are wealthy liberals who must confront the latent racism the coming marriage arouses. Also attending the Draytons' dinner are Prentice's parents, who vehemently disapprove of the relationship.

The film was groundbreaking because it was the first film of the era to cast a positive light on an inter-racial marriage. The film was also controversial; inter-racial marriage had been illegal in most of the United States until only a few weeks before its release, when, in June 1967, anti-miscegenation laws that promoted racial segregation were declared illegal by the Supreme Court. This timing made the film incredibly relevant to its audience.
