    Hey Curtin family!! I was wondering if we can get an all time classic on the big screen..? I was thinking down the lines of Grease! I cannot remember the last time I have actually seen the movie but it will certainly be an experience to see it on the outdoor cinema! Please make it happen..

      Hi Alex, we’re still finalising our plans for the outdoor cinema. It’s possible it will return in February next year, but that’s yet to be confirmed. We’ll keep you updated 🙂 – Emily

    Hello! When is the movie season start in 2016?? Thanku!

    • Emily Lloyd says:

      Hi Leanne, unfortunately The Curtin Outdoor Community Cinema will not have a summer season in 2016. However, Curtin University is hosting six free community screenings (March, April, May, August, December) in 2016. The first of these screenings is ‘Racing Extinction’ in Lower Henderson on the 19th of February, 6.30pm. Racing Extinction is from the Academy Award® Winning Filmmakers of “The Cove”.

      A team of artists and activists exposes the hidden world of extinction with never-before-seen images that will change the way we see the planet. Two worlds drive extinction across the globe, potentially resulting in the loss of half of all species. The international wildlife trade creates bogus markets at the expense of creatures that have survived on this planet for millions of years. And the other surrounds us, hiding in plain sight — a world that the oil and gas companies don’t want the rest of us to see. Using covert tactics and state-of-the-art technology, the Racing Extinction team exposes these two worlds in an inspiring affirmation to preserve life as we know it.
