Sin City (In Melbourne and Perth)
Two states converged and joined together to enjoy the Frank Miller classic. 70 people attended across both states to enjoy what is hailed as Robert Rodriguez' best ever film. Stunningly visual, artistic and noir, the movie truly brings the comic book to life.

65 people turned up to enjoy the classic film, and the q&a by Ian Tregonning. It was remarked that the open delight and exclamations of the children in the audience really made the experience and reminded people why they enjoyed the film so much.

Howl's Moving Castle (IMDB)
69 people turned up for the advanced screening, and were wowed by the detailed brilliance of Miyazaki's direction and animation style. The classic book by Dianna Wynne-Jones has now become a gorgeous timeless animated feature.
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (IMDB)
85 people arrived to ogle Johnny Depp in the much anticipated Tim Burton interpretation of this story. There was applause and most comments were positive - from the movie being closer to the book, to the difference in style so that it didn't appear to be competing with the previous movie.
Serenity (the Firefly movie)
I aim to misbehave" seems to be the catch cry of this movie, and 120 people turned up to do so. There was extensive group laughter and applause and not a few tears. This film is hailed as being the start of a new sci-fi era... and it would seem fans agree.
Night Watch (Trailer, Official Site)
57 people arrived to indulge in the gorgeous Russian movie, the first ofwhat promises to be a spectacular trilogy. It has come back with a very positive response - including the comment 'Best subtitles ever'. Not even remotely Hollywood-esque, and all the better for it, much more gritty than pretty.
