At the movies 

With a bit of a nip still in the air, it’s a great time to head off to the movies in August. There’s a wide range of new movies upcoming this month including the romantic comedy Falling For Figaro and a great true golf story Phantom Of the Open. This wonderful film tells the story of Maurice Flitcroft ordinary bloke, crane operator and optimistic dreamer who managed to gain entry to 1976 British Open qualifier despite having never played a round of golf in his life. Great British

actor Mark Rylance plays Flitcroft with a terrific supporting cast. One not to be missed.

If you’re after some action, then check out Bullet Train, starring Brad Pitt and Sandra Bullock. It follows the story of five assassins on a bullet train from Tokyo to Morioka. Each has a different mission but as the train progresses their missions become interwoven with each other. This is non-stop action and a fun way to spend a few hours.

If horror thrillers are your thing then Nope (11 August) will be the one for you. Set on a California horse ranch it tells the story of a mysterious force that affects animal and human behaviour.

Local comes to the movies with Bosch & Rockit, shot in Byron Bay and starring Luke Hemsworth. Inspired by true events, it tells the story of a boys magical holiday with his father. The holiday actually turns out to be a drug run. Matt Damon said, ‘ I love this movie’ and I think you will agree.


Ballina Players always puts on a great show, so make sure your circle your calendar for 26 August - 11 September when they present the musical comedy, I Love You. You're Perfect. Now Change.
