Chappie

The third film from Neill Blomkamp (Elysium, District 9) tells the story of an intelligent robot child - Chappie - which may be the next step in evolution. That scares people, and while the cast-off ‘bot’s existence starts off tough, things get even worse when he’s abducted by two criminals during birth, becoming the adopted son in a strange and dysfunctional family.

That Sugar Film

ONE WEEK ONLY!

SELECTED: BERLIN FILM FESTIVAL 2015; ★★★ SELECTED FOR COMPETITION: INTERNATIONAL DOCUMENTARY FILM FESTIVAL AMSTERDAM 2014 ★★★ Aussie actor Damon Gameau’s fascinating documentary debut follows one man’s journey to discover the bitter truth about sugar. Damon embarks on a unique experiment, eating 40 teaspoons of sugar a day for 60 days and documenting the impact on his body. However, unlike Morgan Spurlock in Supersize Me, he’s not eating rubbish, rather he’s only consuming foods that are commonly perceived as ‘healthy’. Through this highly entertaining and informative journey, with guest cameos from the likes of Stephen Fry, Isabel Lucas, Jessica Marais and Brenton Thwaites, and interviews with Gary Taubes, Michael Moss, David Gillepsie and Kimber Stanhope, Damon explores the issues that plague the sugar industry and uncovers the sugar lurking on our supermarket shelves. ★★★ “A definite must-see.” – JAMIE OLIVER; ★★★ “Amazingly powerful.”– DR STAN GOLDSTEIN, PUBLIC HEALTH UNSW

Mascagni's CAVALLERIA RUSTICANA & Leoncavallo's PAGLIACCI

Opera’s most enduring tragic double bill returns in an evocative new production from Sir David McVicar, who sets the action across two time periods but in the same Sicilian village. Marcelo Álvarez rises to the challenge of playing the dual tenor roles of Turiddu in Cavalleria Rusticana and Canio in Pagliacci. Rae Smith (War Horse) has designed the moodily atmospheric 1900 village square setting of Cavalleria, which transforms to a 1948 truck stop for the doomed vaudeville troupe of Pagliacci. Eva-Maria Westbroek (Cav) and Patricia Racette (Pag) sing the unlucky heroines, and Met Principal Conductor Fabio Luisi is on the podium.
