APRIL MOVIE EVENT - Once
Director: John Carney
Wednesday 8 April at 6:40pm for supper. Movie starts at 7:05pm.
A thirty-something Dublin busker ("Guy", played by Glen Hansard) sings and plays guitar on Grafton Street, a Dublin shopping district. He struggles with the trials of performing on the street. Lured by his music, an unnamed young Czech immigrant flower seller ("Girl", played by Markéta Irglová) talks to him about his songs. Delighted to learn that he also repairs Hoovers (a brand name that became synonymous with vacuum cleaners in the United Kingdom and Ireland), she insists that he fix her broken vacuum cleaner. Next day she comes back with her vacuum cleaner, and soon tells him that she is a musician, too. At a music store where she regularly plays piano, he teaches her one of his songs ("Falling Slowly"); they sing and play together. He invites her and her ailing vacuum back to his father's shop, and on the bus home musically answers her question as to what his songs are about: a long-time girlfriend who cheated on him, then left ("Broken Hearted Hoover Fixer Sucker Guy"). Review the movie here or view the trailer.
Once screens on Wednesday 8 April at 6:40pm for supper (movie starts at 7:05pm) at Eumundi School of Arts Hall, Cnr Memorial Drive and Pacey Street, Eumundi. BYO drinks and a camping chair if you wish.

MARCH MOVIE NIGHT - THRILLER
At our March movie event, we enjoyed a spine tingling, edge of your seat thriller from Norwegian director Morten Tyldum called Headhunters. If you missed the movie, you can now access a blu-ray dvd from Elfi at The Nest @ Eumundi. Just drop in and show your membership badge.
Our food art expert chef Max Porter from Native Sun Foods tucked us in for the winter with a supper of horseradish potato pancake with smoked salmon, cucumber and onion pickle, greens with mustard dressing and snow blind dessert of baked white chocolate cheese cake, crisp meringue and cold bits. Tea and coffee were accompanied by Norwegian Wood crunchy rum raisin biscuits and our cooling beverage was barley water. Max also starred in his own movie 'Max Porter: Celebrity Chef' by our film maker President Arnold Kopff who wrote, directed and produced a film tribute to our wonderful sponsors.
Thanks again to Trent and Katie Harvison of Starry Night's Outdoor Cinemas (screen and equipment), Lisa and Bruce Williment from Parti Events (fabulous art gallery theming), Amanda Isler from Berkelouw Books (lucky door prize books) and Elfi Fairchild from the Nest@Eumundi (delicious coffee). And the event would not be possible except for our fabulous volunteers Bruce, Paula, Viv, Marilyn and Sharon. Thank you for taking us around the world one movie at a time!
