Season finale for Silo Cinema

2 April 2013

Season finale for Silo Cinema featuring ‘Forrest Gump’, the original Willy Wonka and ‘The Goonies’

After an amazing summer season, Silo Cinema is excited to announce its season finale, taking place over the first two weeks of April.

Friday 5th April will see one of the greatest film characters of all time projected onto Silo 7 in all his glory – none other than Forrest Gump. This epic 90s feature follows the highs and lows of a simple man, as he comes of age, falls in love, and experiences the 70’s – and that’s only half of it! Filled with infamous one-liners and remarkable twists and turns, this is a screening not to be missed.

The Silo Cinema season finale will be on Friday 12 April, showcasing an epic double feature, as voted by Silo Cinema fans – ‘Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory’ (the 1971 original) at 6:30pm, followed by ‘The Goonies’ at 9pm. Neither film need any introduction and both will send the Silo Cinema 2012/13 season out with a bang! The Silo Market will also accompany Silo Cinema, kicking off from 5pm.

Silo Park is also pleased to let fans know that Saturday afternoon activity will take place throughout April; with the Silo Park Bar, music and street food open for business until Saturday 27th April.

Summer may be on its way out, but Silo Park never sleeps – watch this space for events taking place throughout the winter months. And of course, Silo Cinema, Sessions and Markets will be kicking off again for 2013/14 in November.

Max Rashbrooke: Review - The NZSO And Nature

This was a lovely, varied concert with an obvious theme based on the natural world. It kicked off with Mendelssohn's sparkling Hebrides Overture, which had a wonderfully taut spring right from the start, and great colour from the woodwinds, especially the clarinets. More>>

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.
