An Affair To Remember

G

Nickie Ferrante's return to New York to marry a rich heiress is well publicized as are his many antics and affairs. He meets a nightclub singer Terry McKay who is also on her way home to her longtime boyfriend. She sees him as just another playboy and he sees her as stand-offish but over several days they soon find they've fallen in love. Nickie has never really worked in his life so they agree that they will meet again in six months time atop the Empire State building. This will give them time to deal with their current relationships and for Nickie to see if he can actually earn a living. He returns to painting and is reasonably successful. On the agreed date, Nickie is waiting patiently for Terry who is racing to join him. Fate intervenes however resulting in misunderstanding and heartbreak and only fate can save their relationship.

Big Bike Film Night

What’s the Big Bike Film Night all about? Sharing the best cycling short films from around the world with you- our audience.

Showcasing our 2018 collection of movies that have everything a cycling-centric audience could want- action, drama, humour and plenty of inspiration; the evening is going to be unashamedly, unequivocally, and utterly Bike-alicious!

Our treasure chest of stories includes… a journey across the harsh desert landscapes of Oman mountain bike touring, a New Zealand female road cyclist who believes in the power of bicycles, an attempt to beat the record for the longest continuous bike ride in a single country (Canada) on a single speed fixed-gear bicycle, the remarkable story of an American Cellist who challenges the notion of limitations by travelling over 6,000 kilometres by cargo bicycle, Kiwi BMX riders with a passion to see the youth of today succeed, and double trouble with twin uni-cyclists strutting their stuff ALL in the mix.

These short films are a great reminder of why we love to ride our bike; with stories that captivate us, stories that make us think and most importantly of all- stories that inspire us to get on a bike. Tales of character, soul, hope, love, discovery, challenge, courage, triumphs over adversity and much much more.

SO…listen to the voice inside you; it’s telling you to go. Grab your mates, grab your tickets, GO ON… grab your bike and come along for the ride!!

ALL BIKES. ALL TERRAINS. ALL GOOD.

The shortest of Disney's major animated features Dumbo involves a baby elephant with unusually large ears. Ostracized from the rest of the circus animals, poor Dumbo is even separated from his mother, who is chained up in a separate cage after trying to defend her child. Only brash-but-lovable Timothy Mouse offers the hand of friendship to Dumbo, encouraging the pouty pachyderm to exploit his "different" qualities for fame and fortune.

Star Theatre are proud to be hosting the 2018 Fragile X Fundraising Event featuring the NZ Comedy Hit 'The Breaker Upperers'

Fragile X Syndrome is a genetic condition causing intellectual disability, behavioural and learning challenges and various physical characteristics. It is also the most common single gene cause of autism worldwide. It appears in people of all ethnic, racial and socio-economic backgrounds.

Though Fragile X syndrome occurs in both genders, males are generally affected with greater severity. Every week in Australia one child is born who is fully affected and 20 children are born who are carriers of Fragile X. It is estimated that 5 per cent of people with a diagnosis of an Autism Spectrum disorder also have Fragile X syndrome.

Although there is currently no cure, early intervention by health and educational professionals can assist people living with Fragile X to reach their full potential.

Come join us for a drink, nibbles and a movie.

About the Film:

Fifteen years ago, Mel (Madeleine Sami) and Jen (Jackie van Beek) discovered they were being two-timed by the same man. Bitter and cynical they became fast friends and formed The Breaker Upperers, a small-time business breaking up couples for cash. Now they’re in their late-thirties and business is booming. They’re a platonic, codependent couple who keep their cynicism alive by not getting emotionally involved with anybody else. But when they run into an old victim, Mel develops a conscience and their friendship is truly put to the test.
