After his wife, Alice, tells him about her sexual fantasies, William Harford sets out for a night of sexual adventure. After several less than successful encounters, he meets an old friend, Nick Nightingale - now a musician - who tells him of strange sex parties when he is required to play the piano blindfolded. All the men at the party are costumed and wear masks while the women are all young and beautiful. Harford manages to find an appropriate costume and heads out to the party. Once there, however, he is warned by someone who recognizes him, despite the mask, that he is in great danger. He manages to extricate himself but the threats prove to be quite real and sinister.

Meet Big and Little Edie Beale: mother and daughter, high-society dropouts, and reclusive cousins of Jackie Onassis. The two manage to thrive together amid the decay and disorder of their East Hampton, New York, mansion, making for an eerily ramshackle echo of the American Camelot. An impossibly intimate portrait, this 1976 documentary by Albert and David Maysles, codirected by Ellen Hovde and Muffie Meyer, quickly became a cult classic and established Little Edie as a fashion icon and philosopher queen.

The 21st Annual 24Hour Movie Marathon 2020

The 21st Annual 24Hour Movie Marathon 2020

R18ID Required

Each year we have a 24 hour movie marathon at the Hollywood Avondale where we show a secret line-up of films that run non-stop. We have a dinner break and breakfast break. BYO $ for candy/ coffee and any food needs. No hot food allowed in cinema. No annoying crinkly bags in cinema. No talking during the films. No cellphone use inside cinema. Doors Open : 2.30pm Marathon Starts : 3pm GA Tickets : $60 Beanbag Tickets : $85 (Limited QTY, First in First served) FAQ WHERE IS THE AMAZING HOLLYWOOD CINEMA IN AUCKLAND? 20 St. Georges Road, Avondale - only 400m away from the train station. HOW HARD IS IT TO STAY AWAKE THE WHOLE TIME? Fresh air between films, smart food on the breaks, and water intake always helps. CAN I FALL ASLEEP? Yes, but please don't blame us if you awaken to a badly drawn moustache across your face. Any snorers will be woken up and forced to get some fresh air. WHAT DO I WEAR? Wear comfortable clothing/shoes or even pajamas/ dressing gown. Tight leather pants may work for you at the club but watching 24 hours of movies will turn them into liquid cheese. WHAT SHOULD I BRING? Cash or card to support the theatre's snack bar, breakfast and munchies, Aspirin, Nurofen, water bottle, flashlight, pillow, toothbrush/toothpaste. No fucking laser pointers. Instant removal from cinema if you use one. No refund. Oh and charge your phone then turn it off on entry. The world will not stop rotating, we promise. CAN I USE MY PHONE DURING THE 24HRS? Sure, it's a Mobile Phone, so get mobile, and get the Phuck Outside of theatre or be asked to leave / no refund. This is about the movies and not about you. CAN I BRING FOOD? NO HOT FOOD EVER IN CINEMA. it's okay to bring nibbles along but we really encourage people to buy snacks from the theatre itself - This is the cheapest cinema candy bar in NZ. The theatre's doing us a huge favour by opening their doors, the least we can do is support them by buying some munchies. Hot coffee and drinks are available in the lobby thanks to our marathon Barista. CAN I BRING IN HOT FOOD? Okay Caps time. HELL NO! No one wants to smell your Mobil beef burrito at 4am. Hot food stenches can cause riots... eat out in the lobby or better still outside the theatre. There are Dinner and Breakfast Breaks. There are many fine Cafes and restaurants in Avondale 5mins away. CAN I BRING IN BOOZE? No. 100% NO. There is beer/wine available during normal licensing hours. We don't recommend boozing it up. Mainly because you'll be annoying and loud - and secondly you'll start snoring asap. DO I HAVE TO BE 18 OR OLDER? Yes you do, and ID is required. Even if only one film is Restricted, it means the whole 24hrs is. And there will always be a few R rated titles, that's for sure. NO refund if you can't provide ID. HOW OFFENSIVE DOES IT GET? Well there is always a good dose of sex, drugs and violence. Probably no worse than what you can see on TV these days but the bottom line is : Do not come if you are likely to be offended or triggered. There's a good chance there will be some material that will upset you if your tolerance is low. We're not mean-spirited and want everyone to have a good time but the marathon showcases many retro titles and morales/ attitudes were different then. We aren't revisionists and we understand that everything must be viewed in context of the time it was made. MAY I TALK DURING THE FILMS? No you may not. Gibbering to your mate during a film will piss off people around you. Take it to the lobby. This is not your living room, this is my goddamn church. You might think your sleep deprived whispering in your gals ear is too quiet to be heard... guess what padrone.. it aint. It sounds like a fucking lawn mower. Take it to the lobby. WILL IT SELL OUT Beanbag seats always sell out. FAST. GA seats we are usually ok. See Less
