Saturday 5 September,  7 pm: Green Book  (Drama, Comedy, 2018, M)

Winner of Best Picture at the 2019 Academy Awards. A working-class Italian-American bouncer becomes the driver of an African-American classical pianist on a tour of venues through the 1960s American South. A startling reality check in these times of Black Lives Matter.


Saturday 3 October, 7 pm: Celia (Docu, 2018, Exempt)

Former 20/20 and 60 Minutes journalist Amanda Millar directs this portrait of Celia Lashlie, who campaigned relentlessly to raise awareness of the social issues facing New Zealand.


All movies are held at 705 Swanson Road, the hall behind the church next to Swanson Road. As usual, movies are free thanks to the Swanson Railway Station Trust funding the movie licence. A koha appreciated for the use of the hall. Everyone welcome, free coffee & tea before we start, ice creams for sale in the intermission and bring friends and family for a cosy night out in our own village.
