May at the Movies

posted by Emmy O'Neill May 18, 2017 0 comments

Finally some rainy-put-on-your-winter-jacket weather for us Brisbane locals. Ok maybe not your winter jacket, but a light spray jacket and some ankle boots. May is also the perfect time of year to head inside and see the latest blockbuster at Dendy Portside.

This May at the movies, Dendy Portside are showing such variety; including the hilarious comedy Snatched starring Goldie Hawn & Amy Schumer; which actually had us inappropriately giggling out loud in the office. If #LOL comedies aren’t your thing; Dendy Portside have it all… horrors, war dramas, action and science fiction all showing this month. Next week sees the release of the highly anticipated Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales along with heartwarming Brit film, The Sense of Ending.

Now showing at Dendy Portside

Get Out  – Horror 

Snatched – Comedy

Our Picks
Now showing – The ZooKeepers Wife (War/Drama)

The Zoo-Keepers Wife is based on a real-life war story set in Poland during World War Two. In the lead is two-time Academy Award nominee Jessica Chastain, playing Antonina Zabinska and her husband, Dr. Jan Zabinski. Together they run the Warsaw Zoo until Poland is bombed and overrun by the Nazi’s. The Zookeepers Wife is a chilling tale based on a true story and like all war dramas serves to remind us of the bravery, the horrors, the humanity and atrocities of War.

May 25 – Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (Action)

Who doesn’t love Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow? That eyeliner is swoon worthy.  In case you’ve been living under a rock the past decade, Jack Sparrow is a bad-ass sexy-as pirate. Dean Men Tells No Tales is the fifth instalment in the Pirates of the Caribbean series. It is an explosive, edge of your seat, adventure, action packed movie with splashes of all kinds of classic cheeky pirate humour.

May 25- The Sense of Ending (Drama)

This charming and equally heartbreaking English drama is one of those films which gives you goosebumps, tears and laughter all in the space of 1 hour and 48 minutes.  Based on Julian Barnes’ Booker Prize-wining novel of the same name, The Sense of Ending is a drama which tells story  of ‘boyhood, first loves, regrets and heartbreaks’ alongside the current reality of an ageing man. Through flashback this film explores the concept of memories and how ‘sometimes what we remember is actually not what actually happens’. The Sense of Ending asks how often do we make up our reality by telling our own story.

#BTinsiderTip – Every Sunday after 5pm at Dendy Portside you can get 2 tickets for $22 AND 2-4-1 small popcorn; which means you don’t need to share your movie snack! #winning
