Season running March 23 – April 9

SYNOPSIS:

Rabbit Hole is an honest, brave, and searingly touching portrait of a family experiencing the most heartbreaking of griefs.

The play follows Becca and Howie Corbett, a couple in their late thirties, in the months following a horrific accident. They are searching for what is still possible in everyday existence after unimaginable agony. Becca finds pain in the familiar, while Howie finds comfort. He wants to hold on to the memories, cherish them, obsess over them; she wants to move on, erase the past, and start fresh.

Cracks begin to appear in the relationship as Howie bonds with a member of their therapy group and Becca reaches out to a teenage boy with an intertwined past. Tensions are only increased with the tumultuous involvement of Becca’s mother, Nat, and her sister, Izzy.

The journey for this couple, this family, is an intimate glimpse into loved ones learning to re-engage with one another, couples learning to love again, and people learning to piece themselves together after everything falls apart.

SYNPOSIS:

THE DUKE is the true story of Kempton Bunton, a 60-year old taxi driver, who stole Goya’s portrait of the Duke of Wellington from the National Gallery in London. It was the first (and remains the only) theft in the Gallery’s history.

Kempton sent ransom notes saying that he would return the painting on condition that the government invested more in care for the elderly – he had long campaigned for pensioners to receive free television. What happened next became the stuff of legend. Only 50 years later did the full story emerge – Kempton had spun a web of lies. The only truth was that he was a good man, determined to change the world and save his marriage – how and why he used the Duke to achieve that is a wonderfully uplifting tale.

Charlie Chaplin retrospective: the man, the myth, the moustache!

Charlie Chaplin, one of cinema’s most iconic figures returns to the big screen with stunning restorations of his work.

2021 marks the 100th anniversary of Chaplin’s ground-breaking The Kid, providing an ideal launchpad for a season of Chaplin’s magical storytelling back on the big screen. All the Charlie Chaplin classics in one place over 10 months at Dendy!

Monsieur Verdoux

Inspired by notorious French serial killer Landru, Henri Verdoux lures wealthy women by promising them sweet happy-everafters. After the wedding bells chime, however, he murders them for their fortunes. In this particularly dark comedy, Chaplin questions our perception of evil: isn’t this refined criminal a mere amateur compared to weapons suppliers and dictators? We stand ready to condemn a murderer, but when war victims are counted in millions, we celebrate a hero!

The Godfather Trilogy

I have 1 double pass to each film as part of the THE GODFATHER TRILOGY 50th ANNIVERSARY RESTORATION, at Dendy Cinemas Brisbane

For your chance to win a double pass,
1) Follow @reviewbrisbane
2) Like this post
3) Tag who you’d like to take along with you, and
4) Let me know: “What is your favourite The Godfather quote?”

Put your answer on Twitter, Instagram (with the hashtag #GodfatheratDendy, tagging @reviewbrisbane), Facebook, or on our website!

SYNOPSIS:

Dendy Cinemas is celebrating the 50th anniversary of Francis Ford Coppola’s Academy Award-winning masterwork, The Godfather.

The entire ‘The Godfather’ trilogy will play over these dates:
The Godfather – Part I: Feb 25th and Sun Feb 27th
The Godfather – Part II: Mar 4th and Mar 6th
The Godfather – Part III: Coda – The Death of Michael Corleone: Mar 11th and Mar 13th

Every effort was made to create the finest possible presentation for today’s audiences who can watch the films using technology that has advanced dramatically since 2007 when the last restoration was completed. Using that work as a blueprint, thousands of hours were spent to ensure that every frame was evaluated to create the most pristine presentation while remaining true to the original look and feel of the films.

Coppola’s masterful film adaptation of Mario Puzo’s novel chronicles the rise and fall of the Corleone family and the film trilogy is rightfully viewed as one of the greatest in cinematic history. In preparation for the 50th anniversary of the first film’s original release on March 24, 1972, a painstaking restoration of all three films was taken over the course of three years.

RESTORATION DETAILS
Over 300 cartons of film were scrutinized to find the best possible resolution for every frame of all three films. Over 4,000 hours were spent repairing film stains, tears, and other anomalies in the negatives.
Over 1,000 hours were spent on rigorous colour correction to ensure the high dynamic range tools were respectful of the original vision of Coppola and cinematographer Gordon Willis.

In addition to the 5.1 audio approved by Walter Murch in 2007, the original mono tracks on The Godfather and The Godfather: Part II have been restored.

All work was overseen by Coppola.

Tickets for all three screenings can be purchased at the box office or online at dendy.com.au
