Every Thursday night there will be screenings of a selection of cinematic classics and the latest short films including the likes of Hunt for the Wilderpeople, Wings of Desire, and Poi E and many more. And don’t worry, we’ve got the kiddies covered too as come January three very special movies, The GruffaloThe Gruffalo’s Child and the classic series from 1994, The Magical World of Margaret Mahy will be gracing our screen on selected Sunday mornings. 

Then to make your relaxin’ Sunday arvos become that little bit sweeter, we’ll be screening a drool-inducing line-up of documentary greats including Hip Hop-eration, Dancing in Jaffa and China Love
