R16Violence & Horror

Due to her controversial methods, young doctor Tatiana Yurievna is on the precipice of losing her medical license. Her career may not be over, though. After she’s recruited by the military, Tatiana is brought to a secure science research facility to assess a very special case, that of Konstantin Sergeyevich, a cosmonaut who survived a mysterious space accident and has returned to Earth with a unique condition: there’s something living inside of him that only shows itself late at night. The military has nefarious plans for it. Tatiana wants to stop it from killing Konstantin. And the creature itself thrives on destruction. Due to the ever-large shadow of influence and importance cast by Ridley Scott’s Alien, extraterrestrial malevolence in genre cinema more often than not feels as if it’s been beamed down directly from the Nostromo. Sputnik bucks that tradition of pastiche and delivers something fresh to the interplanetary monster-movie canon. And with its massive scale and brutal carnage, this sci-fi gem signals the arrival of a major new voice: first-time Russian director Egor Abramenko.

Doors open 7pm. Show starts 8pm. Some people baked bread during New Zealand’s first lockdown; others learned how to knit. In addition to homeschooling and mastering the art of the slow-rise boule, Bic Runga created a lockdown soundtrack; started a side project (King Sweeties) that has already been nominated for a Silver Scroll Award; and wrote songs for her next record, to be released mid-2021. This spring, the internationally heralded pop songstress is excited to tour select New Zealand locations, celebrating both the warming of weather and the freedom to perform. With Bic on this tour is her all-star band, comprised of Kody Nielson (Silicon, Opossum, UMO); Cass Mitchell (Tiny Ruins, Carnivorous Plant Society, King Sweeties); and Michael Logie (Opossum, Silicon, The Mint Chicks). Bic’s performances are an elegant treat, a musical journey of songs that span her career, including reimagined favourites, rarities, te reo Māori interpretations and new tunes. Lockdown quite literally cleared the air, offering respite from auto emissions and an opportunity to consider the importance of our impact on the environment. Because touring is a resource-intensive activity, a focus of this run of shows will be measuring and offsetting the tour’s carbon emissions. To help us achieve this goal, Zilch, New Zealand’s all-electric car sharing company, is sponsoring vehicles to enable emissions-free car travel. Supporting Bic at the Hollywood Theatre are Na Noise, with their fuzzy doo-wop, Velvet Underground-esque sounds.

Deborah Kerr gives a virtuoso performance as Miss Giddens, the emotionally repressed vicar's daughter who takes up a job as governess at a vast country mansion but finds herself comprehensively outmanoeuvred by the precocious children she is caring for. "The Innocents is too elegant and subtle to be labelled a mere horror film, but too genuinely marrow-chilling to fit any other pigeonhole, with cinematographer Freddie Francis giving a masterclass in the use of black-and-white CinemaScope to convey the full panoply of night-time scares and lurking (his use of candlelight is particularly effective)."

Johnny is a successful banker who lives happily in a San Francisco townhouse with his fiancée, Lisa. One day, inexplicably, she gets bored with him and decides to seduce his best friend, Mark. From there, nothing will be the same again... The Room has been slaying audiences now for over 10 years throughout the world with rabid fans called Roomies screaming out lines and tossing plastic spoons in the air. Why? No matter what you’ve already heard, nothing can prepare you for the once-in-a-lifetime big-screen experience of seeing actor/director/producer Wiseau mumbling his way through this excruciating love triangle about a kind-hearted banker, his best friend and his cheating bride-to-be. It has many unforgettable scenes, but keep your eyes peeled for pictures of spoons, close football tossing, characters vanishing and emerging and even one that announces ‘I definitely have breast cancer’ as a throwaway conversation starter.
