Screenings


Screenings will be happening Semester 1!

Screenings are happening five times a week in this semester. Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays are having screenings from 1 pm - 2 pm while Tuesdays are having them from 12 pm - 2 pm. Come on whichever days your timetable allows and choose from a wide range of shows to follow along with us!

If you can't find the library just inside the screening room it may not be available that day - we try and make sure it's at every screening, but sometimes it's just not possible. If you'd like to check if it'll be available at a specific day, please email [email protected].

A map of the screening locations can be found here.

If you're still (understandably) lost trying to find the screening room, we recommend using this site (they have a handy smartphone app too).

The story follows one Saki Miyanaga, who, whilst talented, doesn't like mahjong. She reluctantly gets dragged into her school's mahjong club and the cast enters into the extremely competitive world of Japanese High School Mahjong. Complete with shounen-esque powers over the tiles and a wide cast of thoroughly developed characters, the story of Saki is one of special friendships and rivalries being forged in the pursuit of reaching the nationals.

Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex is an iconic series depicting incidents investigated by a secret division of the police called Public Security Section 9, an elite task force of expert members tasked with resolving many cyber-crime related cases. This classic Sci-Fi series is set in the year 2030 when humanity has reached the heights of cyborg technology but the world is rife with political strife. With high octane action, deep philosophical and political ideas, and a unique sense of camaraderie set against a cyberpunk backdrop, SAC delivers a poignant tale of wonder and intrigue. Standing alone from the movies, Arise and the manga, SAC is widely considered the finest iteration of the Ghost in the Shell franchise, the series is an absolute must-see, showcasing many interesting ideas that still hold up today.
