The Mystics have arrived

The Mystics have arrived

Irish whimsy is back with the arrival in cinemas nationally this week of Mystics. This new film with David Kelly (Waking Ded Divine, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) and Milo O'Shea (The Playboys & TV's West Wing) will give the audience that loves these comedies another dose of mirth.

See Mystics this week

Mystics is a comedy about pranksters, gangsters and a Jack Russell! It's full of gags and one-liners that have been pleasing St Patrick's Day preview audiences across the country. Now you can join the mystic trail!

Kelly & O'Shea play the mystics - an old music hall dog and pony act long since fallen on hard times. Setting themselves up as mediums they scam an honest living by assisting the widows of Dublin in communing with their dearly departed. Until in walks a drop-dead gorgeous gangster's moll, whose recently departed husband - kingpin of the local mob - has inconveniently passed on without letting on where the loot is hidden. And for once, our heroes actually make contact with the dead gangster who has one last crime he wants to commit and reluctantly they become his earthly accomplices.


You can see Mystics nationwide from this Thursday. It's playing at Warkworth's Mill stream Cinema , Auckland's Rialto and Academy Cinemas, the Thames Cinema, Hamilton's Victoria , Tauranga's Rialto Cinema, Taupo's Starlight Cinema , Te Puke's Capitol Cinema, Rotorua's Basement Cinema , Waipukurau's Civic Cinema , Cinema Gold in Palmerston North (starting April 13), Martinborough's Circus Cinema , Wellington's Penthous e and Lighthous e Petone Cinemas, Nelson's Stat e Cinema , Motueka's Gecko Cinema , Christchurch's Academy and Rialto Cinemas, Akaroa's Cinecafe , Timaru's Moviemax ,

Methven's Cinema Paradiso , Dunedin's Rialto and Metro Cinemas (Metro starts April 13)

Hope you make it to Mystics this coming week!
