Neruda Theatrical Poster

Special Screening of Neruda
Jul 18 2017

*** Due to demand we have two special screenings in July. ***

A glorious mix of history and imagination, NERUDA is multi award-winning director Pablo Larraín’s lavishly mounted and grandly entertaining depiction of the manhunt for titular Chilean poet and politician.

Blending visual grandeur and literary wit, NERUDA is a beguiling reinvention of the ‘standard’ cinematic biography. Playfully confounding expectations at every turn, the film offers a startling rumination on the split between the person and persona, the man and the artist.

Gripping, funny and ingeniously conceived, this is undoubtedly Larraín’s finest achievement to date.

God Willing Theatrical Poster

Special Screening of God Willing
Jul 25 2017

A #1 smash-hit comedy, this wildly entertaining and multi award-winning debut feature from writer-director Edoardo Falcone is the story of an almighty battle of wills that pits a man with a God complex against the hip local priest.

Featuring delicious performances from the talented ensemble cast, and a series of set pieces that are mined for explosive laughs, GOD WILLING also has a sly subtext about how change can be triggered not only through personal introspection, but also by a good shock to the system.
