Lapsis

Rating: PG, Coarse language

Running time: 1 hr 48 mins

Set in an alternative New York, the quantum computing revolution has begun, and investors are lining their pockets. However, building the network requires miles of infrastructure to be laid between huge magnetic cubes by "cablers", a group of unprotected gig workers who have to compete against robots to pull wires over rough terrain.

Delivery man Ray Tincelli is both sceptical and suspicious of this new technology. However, to support himself and his ailing younger brother, he scores a shady permit and starts cabling, hoping to finally change his fortunes. What he doesn't expect is to be pulled into a conspiracy involving hostile fellow cablers, corporate greed and the mystery surrounding someone called Lapsis Beeftech, who may have previously owned his permit.

GHOST WORLD (2001)

One Night Only
Tuesday 29 June
Doors at 5:30 show at 6:30

Starring
Thora Birch
Steve Buscemi
and Scarlet Johanson in her first film appearance

Adapted from the brilliant graphic novel of the same name by Daniel Clowes.

A tale of the pursuit of authenticity: Ghost World is an offbeat comedy telling the story of two young outsiders recently out of high school trying to make sense of things. In a world filled with shopping malls and sports bars they feel out of place... they face a rift in their relationship as one of the girls takes interest in an older man named Seymour, (an introverted record collector) and becomes determined to help his romantic life.

The film was nominated for an academy award and given huge praise by critics but has flown under the radar. A very special film... like no other. Very funny too.
