PVT. Wars @ Alex

It’s 1975. Three U.S Servicemen, now Vietnam veterans, find themselves in a hospital. They tease, torment, and amuse each other in a vain attempt to distract from the reality of returning to a world that doesn’t want them. $35/$30

You know the songs. Suzanne will be supported by Deborah Conway and Willy Zygier
MIFF 2018 Special Event: Tampopo @ Astor

The greatest of all food films. Simmering in newly restored 4K digital splendour, Juzo Itami’s cult classic Western about a band of ronin on the quest to find the perfect ramen noodle recipe.
The Antipodes @ Red Stitch
Until 12 August
TWISK REVIEW: A dynamic cast unpack the story of all stories, playing with myth, time and power. Watch on as the plot spirals towards … where it all started. Clever storytelling that stays with you long after the applause.
Don’t delay, the last Red Stitch season sold out!
