X Ambassadors 2020 Debut Australian Tour

Coming nearly five years after the success of their much-loved debut album VHS, this latest LP demonstrates a band at the peak of their powers – something that audiences on this side of the world will behold for the first time as the band play their debut Antipodean shows in February 2020.

Watch the new main trailer for Just Mercy

A powerful and thought-provoking true story, “Just Mercy” follows young lawyer Bryan Stevenson (Jordan) and his history-making battle for justice. After graduating from Harvard, Bryan had his pick of lucrative jobs. Instead, he heads to Alabama to defend those wrongly condemned or who were not afforded proper representation, with the support of local advocate Eva Ansley (Larson).   //   One of his first, and most incendiary, cases is that of Walter McMillian (Foxx), ...

Roald Dahl’s classic Fantastic Mr Fox returns to QPAC these summer school holidays!

Following a smash-hit, sold out season in 2019, Dahl’s much-loved Fox leaps off the page (and all around the stage) in this mind-blowing, visually-stunning production.

Join Mr Fox and his team of furry friends ...

The Addams Family Movie Review

The film is filled with imaginative moments like Thing (the hand with no body) watching appendage porn on his laptop and the butler Lurch (Conrad Vernon) tickling the ivories and belting out the R.E.M. song Everybody Hurts. One strange part is that most of the tidbits of clever are tailored to an audience a generation (or two) older than the current crop of youngsters.   //   The story as it is involves the art of being yourself and not following the norm and that message is ...

The Good Liar Movie Review

Producer/director Bill Condon has a history with McKellen with Gods & Monsters and Mr. Holmes and does little to rein in his eccentricities. Mirren gives as good as she gets and does so with a thinly veiled look of superiority. With the ad and press campaign for the film leaving little doubt that both participants have something up their sleeves, the real surprises don’t arrive until the last reel reveal.   //   The twist when it does come, will catch most by ...
