Kookaburra Cinema turns 20 on the 3rd January 2017
***** Come and celebrate 20 years of screenings with us on Saturday the 7th January 2017 *****
Academy Award winner Ron Howard's authorised and highly anticipated documentary feature film about The Beatles' phenomenal early career screens at Kookaburra Cinema for one night only. Based on the first part of The Beatles' career (1962-1966) - the period in which they toured and captured the world's acclaim. Ron Howard's film explores how John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr came together to become this extraordinary phenomenen, "The Beatles". It explores their inner workings - how they made decisions, created their music and built their collective career together - all the while exploring The Beatles' extraordinary and unique musical gifts and their remarkable, complementary personalities. The film focuses on the period from the early Beatle's journey in the days of the Cavern Club in Liverpool to their last concert at Candlestick Park in San Francisco in 1966.
Academy Award® winner Ron Howard returns to direct the latest bestseller in Dan Brown’s (Da Vinci Code) billion-dollar Robert Langdon series, Inferno, which finds the famous symbologist (again played by Tom Hanks) on a trail of clues tied to the great Dante himself. When Langdon wakes up in an Italian hospital with amnesia, he teams up with Sienna Brooks (Felicity Jones), a doctor he hopes will help him recover his memories. Together, they race across Europe and against the clock to stop a madman from unleashing a global virus that would wipe out half of the world’s population.
This hilarious comedy now stands as the highest-grossing film in Italian cinema history, earning an extraordinary €65 million to date and almost equalling Star Wars: The Force Awakens three week ticket sales in its first weekend. Checco Zalone, 39 and still living at home, loves his privileged lifestyle and cushy public service job-for-life, carrying a generous pension, and which it seems impossible to be terminated from. When a new reformist government vows to cut down on bureaucracy, Checco refuses to take a severence payout and is transferred to the North Pole out of spite. But as someone who refuses to to relinquish such a privilege, this slacker will go to every length to keep his entitlements at the expense of all others. With non-stop gags and pointed satire, it is no wonder that the film was such a huge success.
The film follows Bronx-born Bobby from New York to Hollywood and back again as he falls in love and becomes swept up in the excitement and glamour of 1930s café society.
