Photographic And Wine Appreciation Group

I have started planning our 2020 Photography & Wine Appreciation outings, with a visit to Port Adelaide first up.  A Heritage Self Walking Tour around Port Adelaide.  A bit of culture education.

Details are, when: Thursday 20 February 2020, time: meeting 9:00am at the church carpark for car pooling.  A walk around Port Adelaide in the morning with 12:00 noon lunch at the Birkenhead Tavern on the riverfront..  Hopefully it will not be too hot.

Please let me know if you are coming by the next general meeting, i.e. 9 January 2020, so I can book the tavern for lunch.

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.

 

Tuesday January 21 | 10:45am – Judy and Punch

Seaside (nowhere near the sea), puppeteers Judy and Punch are trying to resurrect their marionette show in an an anarchic town on the brink of mob rule.

Friday January 24 | 10:45am – The Good Liar

Consummate con man Roy Courtnay has set his sights on his latest mark: the recently widowed Betty McLeish, worth millions. But this time, what should have been a simple swindle escalates into a cat-and-mouse game with the ultimate stakes.

Hopgood Theatre.

Most performances begin at 11:00 am with morning tea served at 10:00 am.
