Next Event: The Bourne Legacy

15 Aug

The Bourne Legacy, Tuesday 28/8: We have put our mystery movie night on hold as we have two special fundraiser outtings. The first of which is to help WGN film club member Jo Doherty complete in the World Age Group Trianthon Championships this October in lil’old Auckland, New Zealand. (Details about the second event, coming soon).
As this is a fundraiser the tickets are a special price of $25 each. But as it’s going to a good cause (& we’ll be at the Roxy Cinema in Mirarmar) it will be worth it. Jo will make cupcakes to go with every ticket sold!

Email Jo directly for purchase your tickets (payment made to ANZ 010505-0436934-00 with your name and LEGACY as reference). RSVP on the official Facebook event page and spread the word.

Here’s about about Jo and what’s she is fundraising for:

I am a 31 year old mother of one little girl, Lilly, & work at the earthquake commission as an EA to the chief financial officer. I have a love and passion for the sport of Triathlon, and really enjoy the competitive nature of racing and all the lovely people you meet while doing this sport. Familiar faces and rivals at multiple events are great fun, and new friendships made with people who like to train like crazy is nice to have.

I think part of my love of this sport comes from the motivation it gives me to get up and go in the morning, lunch times and after work. I juggle training around a full time job, a child and life I guess. I love to be busy, and this definitely keeps me on my toes.

Qualifying for the World Age Group Triathlon Champs is a pretty big thing for me as I do not have the time or money needed to try and become elite. So getting selected is pretty awesome! But it comes at a high cost which each NZ competitor must pay participate:
$200.00 International Race licence
$550.00 Race entry fee
$300.00 NZ Race uniform
$150.00 Travel insurance for my bike
$350.00 Air fares to race venue
$800.00 Shifters & Brakes for my bike with new sponsored race wheels!

The moive fundrasier is therefore a really important part of my journey to compete at the Worlds. Thanks for your support!

Next Event: The Dark Knight Rises

30 Jun


After two standout films, Christopher Nolan will concluded his Batman trilogy with The Dark Knight Rises. Again, starring Christian BaleMichael CaineMorgan FreemanLiam Neeson and Gary Oldman with notables Tom HardyAnne HathawayJoseph Gordon-Levitt, and Marion Cotillard joining the cast.

If TDKR can come even close to matching the Nolan’s previous effort with the The Dark Knight, this will be an amazing film and will complete what would be an extraordinary series of films – perhaps even the best comic book adaptations of film history?

The WFC is going to the Dark Knight Rises on Saturday 21st July. Put it in the Calendar.

Connect with our Facebook page to get the event details.

History of Film Series and a change of plans

13 Sep

We have a bit of a change up to the TNP calendar for the rest of the year. After we complete the September series we are going into hiatus until for a while. However we will break the hiatus with a couple special movie outings we have planned. We will let you know details about these well in advanced so keep your eyes peeled.

But in the mean time…the Brief History Continues. This week – 1940s.

Maltese Falcon (1941)
Sam Spade (Humphrey Bogart), a private detective, gets involved in a murderous hunt for a valuable statuette.
Consensus: Suspenseful, labyrinthine, and brilliantly cast, The Maltese Falcon is one of the most influential noirs — as well as a showcase for Humphrey Bogart at his finest.
Runtime 1hr 40mins

Venue: Palliser, Starts 7:30pm

(Supre Brief) History of Film Continues…Modern Times

7 Sep
This week – 1930s
Mordern Times (1936)
Charlie Chaplin bid farewell to silent comedy with this funny and poignant masterpiece. Here Chaplin stars as a factory worker fed-up with the job and his tyrannical boss (who keeps an eye on all his employees via a big-brother TV monitor). When he meets and falls in love with an orphaned street waif, the two dream of a nice suburban existence…but the cops are never far behind, chasing the vagabond couple. A slapstick skewering of industrialized America, Modern Times is as politically incisive as it is laugh-out-loud hilarious.
Runtime: 1hr 27mins
Venue: 48 Palliser Rd, Roseneath. Starts 7:30pm this Thursday night.
Next Week its the 1940s and The Maltese Falcon with Humphrey Bogart
