Of course, there’s no need to rush that premium Prosecco or Peroni… drinks and antipasto or cheese platters can be taken into the fully licensed auditoria, to savour and enjoy. High-backed seats with extra legroom make for a truly luxurious cinematic experience like no other in Canberra.

There are the usual favourites on offer at Palace Electric, but with an elegant twist, including award-winning olive-oil popcorn and gourmet handmade choc-tops, which our VIP winners will receive upon arrival.

I’m looking forward to Amour. Despite the trailer and synopsis, my hope is that it is a remake of Funny Games but with elderly characters.

Sleepwalk With Me so I can see writer and This American Life contributor Mike Birbiglia instead of just hearing him.

I’m anticipating seeing Mood Indigo this year, hoping for a return to form for Michel Gondry.

‘Ender’s Game’ is the one for me. I love seeing a good book that I really enjoyed brought to life, it gets the imagination going!

The Intouchables is one I’ve put to one side. I’ve seen the flashier flicks, now it’s time for some soul.

Lincoln. What he achieved with abolishing slavery was one of the most heroic acts in history. It was resisted by every nation on earth.

The Room, nothing beats a raucous and rowdy late night audience watching the worst movie ever made in the best cinema in Canberra.

Jack the Giant Slayer – with our grown-up responsibilities; mortgage, jobs, bills, it’ll be nice to escape back into childhood fairytales for a few hours

Cloud Atlas because I love the book and I’m curious to see something I considered unfilmable be brought to life.
