Meerkat Maantuig

28 June 2018 at 7pm

Meerkat Maantuig is inspired by the youth novella Blinde Sambok by renowned South African author Riana Scheepers. Writer-director Hanneke Schutte, decided to use the book as a point of departure and turn it into a cinematic story set in the majestic forests of Magoebaskloof, South Africa. Gideonette de la Rey is a fearful 13-year-old girl who believes in a family curse that has been passed down from generation to generation. Scared and desperate she’s unable to escape this story that has shaped her identity. Ultimately, it’s only by facing her fears that she’s able to transcend it. This is an enchanting film about the stories we tell ourselves: The stories that define our lives and, more often than not, limit our lives. With elements of magic realism, Meerkat Maantuig is a truly unique film unlike anything we’ve seen in South African cinemas – it’s a beautifully told story that shows us how to become braver than we ever thought we could. Age Restriction: 13H. Running Time: 93mins. Tickets R35 at the door.  Read more about the film

Breathe

A tender love story about two strong, resourceful people whose existence is jolted by a devastating setback, but who together choose to fight back and live meaningful lives filled with love, laughter and joy. In 1957 Robin Cavendish (Andrew Garfield – Hacksaw Ridge, Silence) , a dashing, charismatic young Englishman, meets a beautiful woman named Diana Blacker (Claire Foy – Golden Globe Winner, The Crown, Wolf Hall) and swiftly decides to marry her. He takes his new wife out to Kenya, where he works as a tea broker. But within months he is struck down by polio, which leaves him completely paralysed from the neck down, and dependent on a respirator to ‘breathe’ for him. More than anything, Robin wants to live in the world rather than in a hospital bed, and Diana resolves to help him achieve his wish. Together they refuse to be imprisoned by his suffering; dazzling others with their humour, courage and lust for life. This radiant and life-affirming film is based on a true story and scripted by twice Academy Award-nominated writer William Nicholson (Everest, Les Misérables and Gladiator), and marking the feature directorial debut of Andy Serkis (War for the Planet of the Apes, Star Wars: The Force Awakens).

Darkest Hour

21 July 2018 at 7pm

Oscar winner winner Gary Oldman stars for BAFTA Award-winning director Joe Wright in Darkest Hour, a thrilling account inspired by the true story of Winston Churchill’s first weeks in office during the early days of the Second World War. Academy Award nominee Anthony McCarten’s original screenplay takes a revelatory look at the man behind the icon. A witty and brilliant statesman, Churchill is a stalwart member of Parliament but at age 65 is an unlikely candidate for Prime Minister; however the situation in Europe is desperate.  With Allied nations continuing to fall against Nazi troops, and with the entire British army stranded in France, Churchill is named to the position with urgency on May 10th, 1940. With the support of his wife of 31 years, Clemmie (Academy Award nominee Kristin Scott Thomas), Churchill looks to the British people to inspire him to stand firm and fight for his nation’s ideals, liberty, and freedom. Putting his power with words to the ultimate test, with the help of his tireless secretary (Lily James), Winston must write and deliver speeches that will rally a nation. As Winston withstands his own darkest hour, he attempts to change the course of world history forever. Age Restriction: 10 – 12 PGDL. Running Time: 122mins. Read more about the film

The Shape Of Water

5 July 2018 at 7pm

From the inspired mindscape of master storyteller and visionary Guillermo del Toro – who gave us Pan’s Labyrinth, Cronos, and The Devil’s Backbone – comes another astounding and mind-blowing cinematic experience: The Shape Of Water, this year’s Oscar winner for Nest Film and Director. Del Toro casts an other-worldly spell with The Shape Of Water, merging the pathos and thrills of the classic monster movie tradition with shadowy film noir, then stirring in the heat of a love story like no other to explore the fantasies we all flirt with, the mysteries we can’t control and the monstrosities we must confront. This other-worldly fairy tale is set against the backdrop of Cold War era America circa 1962 where a lonely lab assistant (Sally Hawkins) is trapped in a life of isolation in the hidden high-security government laboratory where she works, until the day her life changes forever when she discovers a secret classified experiment. Age Restriction: 16 LNSV. Running Time: 126 mins. Tickets R35 at the door. Read more about the film.
