Movies and Theatre group:

Seniors on Screen at the Mercury Theatre.

The Mercury Theatre screens movies from the Seniors on Screen listing on Tuesdays and Fridays at 10:45 am and on Sundays at 2:00 pm. The offerings on Tuesdays tend to be a little on the alternative side whereas those shown on Friday and Sunday are more main stream.

The cost is $7 which includes a cup of tea or coffee and a biscuit or two.

If we go on a Tuesday or on a Friday we can take the free bus from the Hub just after 9:00 am and this will get us into the city in plenty of time to walk to the theatre and have a cuppa before the show. 

After the show those who wish to can go for a light lunch. There are a couple of nice places near the theatre or we can walk back down Hindley St. and eat at one of the many places in the food courts in Southern Cross Arcade and other arcades nearby.

“Never Look Away” – Friday 16th August 10:45 am.

Through the eyes of an artist, we track Germany through three eras of the nation’s cataclysmic and catastrophic past. Academy Award winner Donnersmarck sensitively combines romance with the dramatic scale of history, as a condemned love reveals a series of complex and long-hidden secrets. Twice nominated at the Academy Awards 2018 for Best Foreign Language Film and Best Cinematography.

“Slam” – Tuesday 20th August 10:45 am.

Direct from the Sydney Film Festival. A proudly assimilated café owner and refugee is estranged from his sister, a highly politicised, hijab wearing slam poet. When she disappears after a gig he must search for her alongside his mother.

Starring Adam Bakri (Omar) and Rachel Blake (Lantana)

“The Keeper” – Friday 23rd August 10:45 am.

Period romance meets sports movie meets war drama in an adoring look into the true-life tale of a German POW turned Manchester City goalie. The film is packed with superb performances from British and German actors alike, brought together in an international co-production wonderfully melding each nation’s cinematic heights.

“Florianopolis Dreams” – Tuesday 27th August 10:45 am.

An Argentinean couple on the verge of separation and their near-adult children go on vacation together to a Brazilian beach resort.

“Claire Darling” – Friday August 30th 10:45 am.

The remarkable Catherine Deneuve plays a flamboyant ageing heiress alongside her real life daughter Chiara Mastoianni. In her house in Verderonne, a small village in the Ois, a woman wakes up under the conviction that it’s her last day and begins to discard all of her household objects. Her long estranged daughter appears to put a stop to all of this nonsense.
