And we’re off! For our second week of our new programme, we are screening acclaimed revenge thriller PROMISING YOUNG WOMAN, the return of everyone’s favourite (maybe second favourite) prehistoric family in THE CROODS: A NEW AGE, a French romantic fantasy in LA BELLE ÉPOQUE and a celebration of the 60th anniversary of rom-com classic BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY’S.
As always, please do remember to register to attend screenings, as per ANU safety regulations. Registration links for this week’s screenings, as well as the upcoming fortnight’s are copied in below for your convenience. You’ve all been doing a terrific job of this so far, so keep it up!
Another pertinent reminder is to please ensure you maintain appropriate social distancing at all times while attending screenings. This means leaving at least one seat between you and the next person/party, as well as keeping 1.5 metres apart when queueing up outside. If you have trouble finding a socially distanced seat upon arrival, an ANUFG volunteer will be stationed inside the cinema prior to every screening and who would be happy to assist.
