At the start of the New Year, 32-year-old Bridget (Renée Zellweger) decides it's time to take control of her life... After vowing to abandon her many vices, Bridget turns over a new page by channelling her opinions and insecurities in a journal that becomes a chronicle of her misadventures. With a taste for adventure, and an opinion on every subject - from exercise to men to food to sex and everything in between - she's turning the page on a whole new life. Soon, Bridget finds herself stuck in the sights of not one, but two men... her debonair boss (Hugh Grant) and friend of the family, Mark Darcy (Colin Firth).

Renée Zellweger picked up a 2002 Best Actress Oscar nomination for her performance as Bridget Jones in this romantic comedy hit, based on the Helen Fielding book.

Calypte - a sailing and surfing voyage

Running time: 1hr 29mins

SCREENING ONE NIGHT ONLY
Thursday, 14 December at 7pm

Join SurfAid and needessentials for the global premiere of Torren Martyn's feature film 'Calypte' - an epic sailing and surfing journey.

All proceeds from these premiere screenings will be donated to SurfAid, helping to improve the health, well-being, and resilience of remote communities in Indonesia.

The dream had been bobbing around in Torren Martyn and Aiyana Powell’s heads for a year or two. It seemed pretty simple: learn how to sail, then buy a boat and head off on an adventure exploring waves in exotic locations. But things don’t always go to plan. Only a few days after beginning the process of learning, an opportunity popped up. A boat in the South China Sea that needed to be delivered to eastern Indonesia - 'the job’s yours if you want it.' With thousands of remote islands and endless perfect surf between origin and destination, the decision seemed simple. 'Why wouldn’t we? Only one small problem - we don’t know how to sail yet…'

‘Calypte – a sailing and surfing journey’ is a story of taking risks and embarking on new challenges. It’s about learning to become a sailor and being shaped by the sea. The sort of experiences that can only be gained by throwing yourself in the deep end and having a crack.

Barbie

Rating: M - Mild violence, coarse language & suggestive references

Running time: 1hr 54mins

STARTING 1 DECEMBER with limited screenings

Directed by Greta Gerwig

Barbie and Ken are having the time of their lives in the colourful and seemingly perfect world of Barbie Land. However, when they get a chance to go to the real world, they soon discover the joys and perils of living among humans. Barbie suffers a crisis that leads her to question her world and her existence.

In one of the more curious mixes of talents and source material, this is the live action feature of Mattel's Barbie. It's directed by Greta Gerwig (Lady Bird), co-written by Noah Baumbach (Marriage Story), stars Margot Robbie as big B and Ryan Gosling as Ken. Will Ferrell, who plays a Mattel CEO, has called the film “the ultimate example of high art and low art... an amazing comment on male patriarchy and women in society”.
