Births, Deaths and Marriages screening in March

Posted Wednesday 19 Feb 2020

One family. One weekend. One hell of a home video! It's wonderful to see Robin Murphy and Ness Simons' feature film Births Deaths and Marriages will be screening in local cinemas from 3 March! We were also pleased to hear that this independent Kiwi feature film had an all-female creative team. Enjoy this slice-of-life comedy set in Lower Hutt in 1994 at the cinemas below, and bring your questions - director Bea Joblin will do a half-hour audience Q&A after the film at selected cinemas. 

3 March at Lighthouse Petone (Q&A)

4 March Rialto Newmarket (Q&A)

5 March Lumiere Christchurch (Q&A)

5 March general release in Rialto Newmarket, Lumiere, and Rialto Dunedin
