MORE ABOUT THE MOVIES:
ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD – (pictured) screening Friday 13 August. Rated MA15. A 2019 comedy-drama film written and directed by Quentin Tarantino and set in 1969 Los Angeles. Actor Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio) gained fame and fortune by starring in a 1950s television Western but is now struggling to find meaningful work in a Hollywood that he doesn't recognise anymore. He spends most of his time drinking and palling around with Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt), his easy-going best friend and longtime stunt double. Rick also happens to live next door to Roman Polanski and Sharon Tate - the filmmaker and budding actress whose futures will forever be altered by members of the Manson Family. The ninth film from the writer-director features a large ensemble cast and multiple storylines in a tribute to the final moments of Hollywood's golden age.
YESTERDAY – screening Friday 20 August. Rated M, a 2019 musical romantic comedy film directed by Danny Boyle. After a global blackout, a struggling musician awakens to realise he's literally the only person on Earth who can remember The Beatles are.
SEARCHING FOR SUGAR MAN – screening Friday 10 September. Rated M. Oscar-winning documentary Searching for Sugar Man tells the almost unbelievable story of Mexican-American songwriter Sixto Rodriguez, whose two early '70s albums bombed in America, but found a huge audience in Apartheid-era South Africa. Rodriguez had no idea he was a legend there until a group of fans found him on the internet and brought him to the country for a series of triumphant concerts. Amazing story and sensational music. This is a must-see!
SCHOOL OF ROCK – screening Friday 17 September. Rated PG. Overly enthusiastic guitarist Dewey Finn (Jack Black) gets thrown out of his bar band and finds himself in desperate need of work. Posing as a substitute teacher at an uptight elementary private school, Dewey tries to turn his class into a rock band. Big laughs with this one.
NOMADLAND – screening Friday 24 September. Rated M. After losing everything in the Great Recession, a woman in her 60s, Fern (Frances McDormand) packs her van and sets off on the road exploring a life outside of conventional society as a modern-day nomad. The third feature film from director Chloé Zhao, Nomadland features real nomads Linda May, Swankie and Bob Wells as Fern's mentors and comrades in her exploration through the vast landscape of the American West. Nomadland took out Oscars for best picture, best director and best actress.
