Hypnotic postoned!

Wed March 17th, 2004


Hello Cinema Circus Fans!

After seeing more grey clouds sweeping over the Waitakeres we are going to have to postpone tonights Premiere Screening of HYPNOTIC until tomorrow night. The outlook is much better and the ground will be dry. We're just not having much luck with the weather in Auckland, our apologies for the inconvenience. And again, we're not fans of spam at all and getting these newsletters updating the weather must be very boring but please hang in there.

Cinema Circus and Rialto Entertainment are proud to present the NZ Premiere screening of the British thriller HYPNOTIC, at Western Springs Quarry this Thursday (Mar 18th). This is one spooky film and it would pay to bring someone with you so you can squeeze their hand during the scary bits.

This is an outdoor screening, which means; you should bring warm clothing, a blanket and some nibbles.

IMPORTANT:: If it's raining, then the screening won't happen. Please listen to 95BFM on thursday in case weather looks dodgy. If no rain and no high wind, we'll be okay.

Entrance to Quarry is off the Zoo road (motions road) and is at the Pt Chev end. Gates open from 5pm but you'd probably want to get there around 7pm onwards. Film starts around 8.30.

Howard Davis Review: From Free Press to Fancy Dress - Spielberg's The Post

Stephen Spielberg's The Post is an opportune newsroom drama in which a corrupt Republican president wages war against the "liberal media," as its plucky proprietor risks economic and legal ruin to bring the Pentagon Papers to public light. Its true protagonist is publisher Katharine Graham, a stringently diplomatic businesswoman, reluctantly compelled to take an overtly political stance in the interests of democracy and freedom of the press.

Howard Davis Review: The Black Dog of Empire - Joe Wright's Darkest Hour'

On the eve of England's contorted efforts to negotiate its ignominious retreat from Europe and the chaotic spectacle of the Tory party ratifying its undignified departure from a union originally designed to prevent another World War, there has been a renewed appetite for movies about 1940. More>>

Howard Davis Review: Anger Begets Anger - Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

For fans of what Ricky Gervais termed "number movies" (Seven Samurai, The Magnificent Seven, Ocean's 11, Se7en), Martin McDonagh's latest offering will be a welcome addition to the roster. The Irish playwright turned screenwriter and director has produced another quirky and darkly comic tragedy that evolves around the futility of anger and grief, retribution and revenge. More>>

Howard Davis: Sexting in George Dawe's Genevieve - Part I

Te Papa's permanent collection includes an enormous oil painting by the English artist George Dawe called Genevieve (from by a poem by S.T. Coleridge entitled 'Love') that was prominently featured in the 2013 exhibition Angels & Aristocrats. Compare the massive immensity of the bard's gorgeously gilded harp with the stubby metallic handle of the Dark Knight's falchion, both suggestively positioned at crotch-level. Dawe's enormous canvas invokes a whole history of blushing that pivots around a direct connection to sexual arousal. More>>


Ethnomusicology: Malian ‘Desert Blues’ Revolutionaries To Storm WOMAD

Malian band Tinariwen (playing WOMAD NZ in March 2018) are a true musical revolutionaries in every sense. Active since 1982, these nomadic Tuareg or ‘Kel Tamashek’ (speakers of Tamashek) electric guitar legends revolutionised a traditional style to give birth to a new genre often called ‘desert blues’. They also have a history rooted deeply in revolution and fighting for the rights of their nomadic Tamashek speaking culture and people. More>>

Gordon Campbell: Best New Music Of 2017

Any ‘best of list’ has to be an exercise in wishful thinking, given the splintering of everyone’s listening habits... But maybe… it could be time for the re-discovery of the lost art of listening to an entire album, all the way through. Just putting that idea out there. More>>
