FREDDIE MERCURY – THE KING OF QUEEN
Friday 26 April, 8:30pm
Renowned as one of the greatest performers of the 20th century, Freddie Mercury pushed the boundaries of art and music as he led his band Queen to international stardom.
This new documentary looks at the man, his life and music, music industry figures adding their perspective to his legend. His limitless vocal power and extravagant performances shocked and wowed audiences around the world but out of the spotlight he was incredibly private. With exclusive interviews and footage (on and off stage) we uncover the story of Freddie Mercury and how a shy boy from Zanzibar became one of the most iconic figures in modern history.

WAYNE’S WORLD anniversary dress-up screening
Saturday 27 April, 8:30pm
Join us for a most excellent 25th anniversary (+ 2!) dress-up screening!
Many missed this classic rock comedy on its original bodacious cinema release 27 years ago. So dudes an dudettes, (while not a prerequisite), come dressed as your favourite real and fictional Wayne’s World character hero, villain or musician – from Wayne, Garth, Cassandra, Wayne’s Dreamwoman, or Stacy, to Rob Lowe’s yuppie, Alice Cooper, Meat Loaf, Robert Patrick’s T2 bad cop, Officer Koharski, or any random Wayne’s World rock T-shirt wearing fan! Bad wigs welcome!
And what the hell, come dressed as someone from Wayne’s World 2 if you want to! (like Christopher Walken, Jim Morrison, Cassandra’s dad, any member from Aerosmith, Rip Taylor, a roadie… you name it!)
And yes, if everyone joins in on Queen’s ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, it will be totally awesome!

LORDS OF CHAOS (South African Premiere)
Sunday 28 August, 8:30pm
Based on truth and lies.
In the early ‘90s a new musical genre (germinated in the ’80s) rose from Norway: Black Metal
With dark, occult imagery, the renowned black and white corpsepaint and strong anti-Christian sentiments, the abrasive and challenging music went beyond imagery into true darkness, not only resulting in church burnings, but also violence, suicide and murder.
Directed by Jonas Åkerlund (known for Rammstein and Madonna music videos and films like Spun and Polar), he was also in fact a member of early Swedish Black Metal legends Bathory.
Starring Rory Culkin, Emory Cohen, Jack Kilmer, Sky Ferreira, Valter Skarsgård
