The Wellingtonista season of NZ feature films continues this Wednesday with Kingpin (1985), the predecessor to last week’s film Mark II.

Starring much the same cast but with the addition of the wonderful and greatly-missed Wi Kuki Kaa, Kingpin tells the story of a provincial borstal: a world where only the strong survive and The Kingpin is the biggest, the meanest, the toughest, the boss. And, there can be only one.

Tickets $8 or $6 concession – which includes a complimentary glass of wine (with ID) unless you can tell us which Hollywood blockbuster pinched its tagline from Kingpin, and we’ll give you a double pass. Film commences 7pm.
