Coming Soon

The Staging Post Q&A

Monday 17 June at 6.30pm.

When a small group of refugees were stuck in Indonesia, they started a refugee school and inspired a refugee-led education revolution which continues today. The Staging Post is an inspiring and uplifting film which proves that, when given agency and encouragement, the sleeping leaders in the refugee community are part of the solution.
Last year The Staging Post was a great sucess at The Empire Cinema, we are very pleased to announce an encore screening. The star of the film, Muzafar Ali, will be here again for the Q&A, and this time he’s bringing his wife, daughters and mother. The director, Jolyon Hoff, will also be in attendance.
This is a very special all-ages event, if you saw the film last year, you know what a inspirational evening it is and we promise you will love the film even more a second time.

All Tickets $12.00 available now at the Box Office or online.

EXHIBITION ON SCREEN: YOUNG PICASSO

Pablo Picasso is one of the greatest artists of all time - and right up until his death in 1973 he was the most prolific of artists. Many films have dealt with these later years - the art, the affairs and the wide circle of friends. But where did this all begin? What made Picasso in the first place?  Somewhat overlooked, it is time to look at the early years of Picasso; the upbringing and the learning that led to his extraordinary achievements. Looking carefully at two key early periods - the so-called Blue Period and Rose Period - the film takes us all the way to 1907 and the creation of a key painting in the history of art - Les Demoiselles d'Avignon.  It was a painting that shocked the art world but changed it irrevocably. Picasso was only 25 years old.  Working closely with all three Picasso Museums in Malaga, Barcelona and Paris this film explains how he rose to such great heights.

EXHIBITION ON SCREEN: VAN GOGH & JAPAN

"I envy the Japanese" Van Gogh wrote to his brother Theo.  In the exhibition on which this film is based - VAN GOGH & JAPAN at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam - one can see why. Visiting the new galleries of Japanese art in Paris and then creating his own image of Japan – through in-depth research, print collecting and detailed discussions with other artists – Van Gogh’s encounter with Japanese artworks gave his work a new and exciting direction. After leaving Paris for the south of France – to what he thought of as near to a kind of Japan as he could find - the productive and yet troubled years that followed must all be seen in the context of Van Gogh bending Japanese influences to his will and defining himself as a modern artist with clear Asian precursors. In this little known story of Van Gogh’s art we see just how important his study of Japan was.
