Cinema Fiasco

Presented by Janet A McLeod and Geoff Wallis

Come on, admit it.

It's the guilty pleasure we all have - sitting at home and laughing at crappy movies.

Well, it's time to go public and join a bunch of like-minded film-goers as you chuckle along with the Cinema Fiasco team.

You'll be encouraged to behave in a distinctly un-cinema-like fashion: laughing, heckling, jeering and shrieking out loud.

The movie:  Trolls 2 (1990) Rated M.

A perfectly awful family goes to a small town and encounters a bunch of goblins who want to turn them into plants and eat them.

Bad acting, bad direction, bad editing, bad camera work, bad dialogue and bad make-up. In short, this is quite possibly the FUNNIEST BAD MOVIE EVER MADE.

Duration: 1 hour 40 minutes

Time: 7.30pm

Embrace: The documentary

The second in our MOVIES THAT MATTER series

The culture of body loathing and body shaming had reached epic proportions worldwide.

Lose weight, reduce wrinkles, fight cellulite; we’re constantly told to fight a battle to be someone other than who we are. Women and girls are constantly lead to believe they’re not as good as they should be. And why? Because every day they feel they’re being judged on their appearance and how far away it is from an unachievable ideal.

At the Body Image Movement, we’re on a quest to redefine and rewrite the ideals of beauty. Our job is to harness and facilitate positive body image activism by encouraging women to be more accepting of who they are, to use positive language regarding their bodies and others, and to prioritise health before beauty. Our goal is to reach as many women as possible around the world and speak to them about how we can learn to fully embrace and love our bodies.

We say no to …

  • Excessive “Photoshopping” of body images in the media
  • Being programmed by the media and corporations into accepting unrealistic body images
  • Prescribing to the notion that being a certain weight determines whether you’re healthy
  • Sexualisation of girls in the media and modern culture
  • The objectification of women
  • Society and advertising preying on women’s insecurities

To get the word out there, Taryn Brumfitt, Founder of the Body Image Movement is filming Embrace the documentary. Embrace uncovers why poor body image has become a global epidemic and what women everywhere can do to have a brighter future.

A funny, touching, at times gut wrenching but above all, life changing documentary, the heart of Embrace is Taryn’s story. How she went from a body hater to a body lover. From being devastated by her perceived ugliness to proudly posing nude for the whole world to see.

The Grigoryan Brothers

Presented by Raz Music

Although regarded as Australia’s finest guitar duo performing much of the instrument’s standard classical repertoire, the Grigoryan Brothers' passion is to expand their horizons through new arrangements, their own compositions and commissions. This ambition can be heard as the brothers take the guitar into genres such as jazz, folk and contemporary music. There are no boundaries, only new frontiers to cross. In concert, mix it all together and you have a dimension to guitar-playing rarely seen in the musical world.

For this performance The Grigoryan Brothers will be performing works from their latest release, which sees a return to classical repertoire. The album will include songs by composers such as Bach, Elgar, Dvorak, Rachmaninoff, Faure, De Falla and Ponce all masterfully arranged for them by their father Edward. This familial collaboration is not new, with Grigoryan senior arranging the music of Tchaikovsky’s suite for piano The Seasons, for his sons' critically acclaimed 2012 release.
 
The program will also include other works highlighting the Slava and Leonard’s diverse skills: their deep appreciation of a broad spectrum of musical styles has resulted in many collaborations involving music, both written and improvised. Combine this with their classical training and the result is a unique sound incorporating all these influences. It is not classical, not jazz, not world ... it is the Grigoryan Brothers.

Set as cabaret style, share platters are available for pre-order (sweet and savoury) for $22 each. Call box office to book in now!

Adapted from the award winning picture book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, published by Macmillan Children’s books.

A helpful dog, bird and frog find the witch’s lost things, and they all hop of the broom for a ride. But this broomstick’s not meant for five and – CRACK – the broom snaps in two! When a hungry dragon appears, who will save the poor witch? And will there ever be room on the broom for everyone?
