Don’t miss the outstanding double feature screening this weekend.

We all know of Winnie the Pooh, but what do we know of his creator A A Milne?

In the first film we are given a rare glimpse into the author’s life and relationship with his beloved son in Goodbye Christopher Robin (PG).

Along with his mother Daphne, and his nanny Olive, Christopher Robin and his family are swept up in the international success of the books, bringing hope and comfort to England after World War I.

With attention on Christopher what will be the cost to his family?

The second film is the darkly comic drama, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (MA 15+).

After months have passed without a suspect in her daughter’s murder case, Mildred Hayes makes a bold move, painting three signs leading into her town with a controversial message directed at William Willoughby, the town’s revered chief of police.

When his second-in-command officer Dixon, an immature mother’s boy with a penchant for violence, gets involved, the battle begins.

These films will screen on Friday, February 16, and Saturday, February 17, at 7pm and on Sunday, February 18, at 6pm.

A unique cinematic and musical collaboration between the Australian Chamber Orchestra and BAFTA-nominated director Jennifer Peedom is screening during the weekend of February 23, 24 and 25.

Mountain (G), is narrated by Willem Dafoe who asks the question: Why do mountains hold us spellbound, drawing us into their dominion, often at the cost of our lives?

This feature documentary explores the troubled and triumphant history of our timeless fascination with the highest mountains in 22 countries.

It is a meditation on nature that leaves viewers with the chance to create their own message.

The second film has been meticulously crafted over a seven-year period.
