Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson star in the incredibly inspiring and heartwarming film, Wonder (PG), screening on this weekend.
The film is based on the best seller Wonder, which tells the heartfelt, funny and witty story of August Pullman, who was born with facial differences that until now prevented him from going to a mainstream school.
Auggie becomes an unlikely hero in fifth grade.
As his family, classmates, and community all struggle to find their compassion and acceptance, Auggie’s extraordinary journey will unite them all and prove you can’t blend in, when you are born to stand out.
The second film screening is All The Money In The World (MA15+).
The film follows the kidnapping of 16 year-old John Paul Getty III and the desperate attempt by his devoted mother Gail to convince his billionaire grandfather to pay the ransom.
When Getty Sr refuses, Gail attempts to sway him as her son’s captors become increasingly brutal.
With her son’s life in the balance, Gail and Getty’s advisor become unlikely allies in the race against time that ultimately reveals the true value of love over money.
These films will screen on the new end of daylight saving times of Friday, April 6, and Saturday, April 7, at 6pm and on Sunday, April 8, at 5pm.
Screening on the weekend of April 13, 14 and 15 is Steven Spielberg’s, The Post (M) starring Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep.
Katharine Graham is the first female publisher of a major American newspaper — The Washington Post.
With help from editor Ben Bradlee, Graham races to catch up with the New York Times to expose a massive cover-up of government secrets that spans three decades and four US Presidents.
Together they must overcome their differences as they risk their careers — and very freedom — to help bring long-buried truths to light.
Kevin Costner stars in the second film, Molly’s Game (M), which is based on a true story.
A beautiful, young, Olympic-class skier ran the world’s most exclusive high-stakes poker game for a decade before being arrested in the middle of the night by 17 FBI agents wielding automatic weapons.
Her players included Hollywood royalty, sports stars and business titans.
Her criminal defence lawyer comes to realise that there is much more to Molly than the media stories.
