Woody, Buzz Lightyear and the rest of the gang find their life with new owner Bonnie turned upside down when she makes a new friend on her first day at kindergarten. Literally – she makes a new toy out of a spork and names him Forky.

Before long, all of the toys have taken a backseat to her beloved Forky, who struggles to understand that he’s a toy and not trash. So when Forky goes missing during a road trip, it’s up to them to bring him home, embarking on a journey that changes their understanding of what it means to be a toy.

Clever, funny and winningly heartfelt, Toy Story 4 is a worthy continuation of Pixar’s best series.

In celebration of the Canberra Theatre Centre’s upcoming season of the legendary Broadway classic this October, the ANU Film Group is bringing West Side Story back to the big screen!

The 1961 musical revolves around the conflict between the Jets and the Sharks, two rival street gangs battling for turf in New York City’s Upper West Side in the 1950s. The situation is complicated when Tony (Richard Beymer), one of the founders of the Jets, falls in love with Maria (Natalie Wood), the sister of Sharks leader Bernado (George Chakiris).

With its memorable songs, score and groundbreaking choreography, West Side Story remains one of the most iconic movie musicals of all time, with 10 Oscars under its belt, including Best Picture. In fact, none other than Steven Spielberg is presently in production on a remake of the film, due for release late next year – so there’s no better time to revisit the original!
