The Chinese New Year is coming soon

January 28 until February 11. And listen up folks, it’s the Year of the Dog! What we’re particularly looking forward to is the Asian Market (11am-3pm) at the Events Centre on the waterfront on Festival Day (Feb 11). The food! The crowds! But mostly the food. Festival day will also sport a parade from Courtenay […]

Midweek Fantasy Costume Night! Slick Music! Half Price Entry! $5 Drinks!

I’m sorry, no picture, this is a family site. So I’m striding purposefully along Lambton Quay, minding my own business, head down… Suddenly I am forced to pause for a moment by the unexpected obstruction of what can best be described as somewhat generous cleavage.

Arguably the most influential film producer of post-war Germany, he was also driven to produce films about victims of the National Socialist regime (when the Nazis invaded Lódz, […]

The New Zealand Film Archive

This lunchtime, I popped downstairs & around the corner from the Wellingtonista Towers, to the NZ Film Archive & spent a fascinating wee while browsing their catalogue of VCRs & DVDs. I tried picking the brain of the technician on duty in the Media Library, but he was just relieving & had sketchy information at […]
