Movies 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.

Suggested outings for the movie group for June and August are as follows.

Little Woods. Friday 28th June. 10:45 am.

Lily James and Tessa Thompson are left with little when their mother dies after a painful final chapter, only to have hung over them the threat of losing their family home. Set in North Dakota, the sisters navigate the border between the US and Canada under a dire set of circumstances, crossing north for healthcare, and smuggling drugs back.

Rocket Man. Friday August 2nd. 10:45 am.

Taron Egerton fills the platform boots of the one-and-only Elton John, in what is the latest and most spectacular in a cycle of musical biopics. True to Elton’s life as it tracks his rise to stardom, through his complications and controversy, Fletcher presents it with an uncompromising explosion of fantasy and glam matched only by the man himself.

Camino Skies. Tuesday 13th August. 10:45 am.

Six antipodean pilgrims between the ages of 50 and 80 with very different personalities and abilities embark on the 900-kilometre Camino de Santiago to seek life’s answers. How will they motivate themselves in the face of blisters, shin splints, heat and snow?
