Synopsis: 

One of the world’s most spectacular events, Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour, is returning to cinema screens with a modern retelling of Puccini’s tale of love and honour, Madama Butterfly.

This is the third consecutive year an opera has been staged on the magnificent water stage, suspended over the harbour against a backdrop of the Sydney Opera House and the Harbour Bridge. This outdoor spectacle includes a giant sun and moon - both 12 metres wide - which will rise from the water to hang above the stage where Japanese soprano Hiromi Omura will portray tragic Cio-Cio San with her co-star Georgy Vasiliev who performs the role of Pinkerton.

Past Handa productions include La Traviata, featuring a giant chandelier floating above the stage, along with last year's Carmen with spectacular costumes and staging confirming Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour gets bigger and better every year!  Yes, there are fireworks, of course!

Synopsis: 

Inspired by true events, writer/director David Trueba's Living is easy with eyes closed is a buoyant and heartfelt comedy set in conserative, Franco-era Spain, about a free-spirited English teacher's quest to meet his idol, John Lennon, and the inspirational effect he has on the two young people who share in the journey.
 
It’s 1966: dedicated schoolteacher Antonio is an obsessive Beatles fan – a passion that carries through to his classroom, where he uses the lyrics from ”Help!” to teach his pupils English. When he learns that John Lennon is filming Richard Lester’s absurdist comedy How I Won the War on the other side of the country, Antonia drops everything and sets out in his tiny Fiat to find the production’s location, hoping Lennon can help him understand the lyrics to the newly released Revolver LP.

Cast: Benedict Cumberbatch, Keira Knightley, Matthew Goode, Mark Strong.
Official Website: visit official website

Synopsis: 

During the winter of 1952, British authorities entered the home of mathematician, cryptanalyst and war hero Alan Turing (Benedict Cumberbatch) to investigate a reported burglary. They instead ended up arresting Turing himself on charges of ‘gross indecency’, an accusation that would lead to his devastating conviction for the criminal offense of homosexuality – little did officials know, they were actually incriminating the pioneer of modern-day computing. Famously leading a motley group of scholars, linguists, chess champions and intelligence officers, he was credited with cracking the so-called unbreakable codes of Germany's World War II Enigma machine.

An intense and haunting portrayal of a brilliant, complicated man, THE IMITATION GAME follows a genius who under nail-biting pressure helped to shorten the war and, in turn, save thousands of lives.
