Cheapest movies in Canberra
If you like movies, there's something you should know. the Australian National University has a film group - and you don't need to have even the most tenuous connection to the ANU to join in the films.
The first film of each semester is free - and this semester it's The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, showing at 7:30pm on Monday February 9th.
Joining the group is a great way to see a huge number of films on a big screen for a very small amount of money. Most new releases are shown a month or so after they come out in regular movie theatres, and they're combined with classics, foreign films, and others voted on by members - so if there's a film you've always longed to see on the big screen, you can probably make that happen. They often have theme weeks or show two related films on the same night.
Weekly memberships cost $15 - you can see all the films for seven days, and then get $10 off a semester or annual membership. A semester costs $40 and a year costs $70 - meaning that if you see an average of one film a month, they're costing you around $5 each, not counting your free guest passes.
The films are shown in Coombs Lecture Theatre at the ANU. There will be a poster of the semester's films on the glass door. Posters and booklets (packed with reviews) are free with semester or annual membership. This semester's full program will be announced on the website soon, or you can sign up to the mailing list to have it emailed to you.
In this picture, you can see the distinctive black and white Hedley Bull Building, with the Coombs Extension on the left (it isn't attached to the main building, but faces the entrance you want). There is some parking if you continue through the roundabout and turn left, and more on the other side of the library.
From the ANU Film Group staff: "We’re now very excited to also announce that we’ll be joined at the screening by two very special guests: actor Stephen Hunter, who plays Bombur the dwarf, and the film’s on-set colourist, Ché Baker!"
