Wotz On – Celluloid Edition

ANU Film group – tonight, it’s Rusty Crowe and Helen Mirren in STATE OF PLAY. Friday night, see STAR TREK followed by Viggo Mortensen in GOOD. Saturday night, NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM 2 is followed by the classic Terry Gilliam film BRAZIL. Wednesday night we have Seth Rogen as the mall cop from hell in OBSERVE AND REPORT. All screenings start at 8pm, membership available at the door from $15,

Arc – J-Noir continues tonight, Harold Pinter concludes on Saturday, new seasons on Australian Films 1968-72, Bert Haanstra and Jerry Skolimowski start over the weekend and, if you’re in the mood for Cliff Richard and jiggly bits (not Cliff Richard’s jiggly bits) then EXPRESSO BONGO will fill that need.

And there’s a Q&A preview of BALIBO at Dendy on Tuesday night, but apparently it’s sold out.

A tenner is not really that hard on the pocket 😉

UG Beats at Transit tomorrow night has some sort of ‘rock’ theme, as opposed to the usual ‘repetitive beats’ theme.

Also Downsyde are at the same venue tonight. You’ll have to pay to get in (a tenner I believe), which is unusual, but there you go.
