MAY MOVIE MAYHEM

Created: Thursday, 14 May 2015

The Cinemachics will be at the Maldon Neighbourhood Centre again on Thursday 21 May, to ensure you have a good night while watching    the 2011 dark Irish comedy written by John Michael McDonagh and starring Brendon Gleeson.

THE GUARD portrays the lives of three very different policemen and how they attempt law and order in Galway.

David Stratton’s comments about it included this QQ ‘Augmenting a smart, witty screenplay is magnificent Scope camerawork by Larry Smith, using beautiful locations around the west coast of Ireland, which is a pretty dangerous place if this thoroughly entertaining and exceptionally well-acted film is to be believed.”

SPOIL MUM WITH DELICIOUS DELICACIES

Created: Friday, 01 May 2015

David and Christine Hinrichsen launched Delicious Delicacies almost five years ago after many successful years running Figtree Hollow Tearooms & Gallery in Bendigo. This is where they gained experience producing & serving delicious food.

"We were ready for a new challenge, saw a gap in the market & began the development of our Handmade Chocolate Truffles" explains Christine.

All the Chocolate Truffles are rolled by hand & top quality Australian ingredients are used wherever possible. After much taste testing David and Christine settled on their first six flavours & introduced them to the public at farmers markets.

Maldon Movies Success Despite the Heat

Created: Tuesday, 10 February 2015

MGM Success despite the heat

The 2015 opening night of Maldon Movies Film Society (MMFS) was a great success despite the heat of a hot January night. The ice cream sellers, purportedly from Alliance Française, considerably enhanced the evening.

Mademoiselle Laura and Monsieur David not only charmed the audience by selling cold treats and Fantales, but also introduced Mon Oncle in their delightful French accents. Scripted by our President Mr Pitts, they paid tribute to local philosophers like Dave at the Hardware store, and Mary at the IGA, as well as outlining the premise behind the film.

Membership has grown exponentially since our first night in 2014 and now stands at just over 70, which is fantastic. We are planning to rearrange the seating for the February screening. The screen will be rehung on the end wall to allow more rows of seats and an aisle down the middle for ease of movement. We will have a surprise short film prior to interval, which may feature something of our Patron John Flaus.

The February feature is Black Orpheus, a 1959 film made in Brazil by French director Marcel Camus and starring Marpessa Dawn and Breno Mello. It is based on the play ‘Orfeu da Conceição’ by Vinicius de Moraes, adapted from the Greek legend of Orpheus and Eurydice, but set in the modern context of a favela (slum) in Rio de Janeiro during Carnaval. The film is also noted for its classic soundtrack, particularly as two songs from the movie have become bossa nova standards.

Come along at 7:15 for a 7:30 pm start in the Maldon Neighbourhood Centre. Bring a plate of finger food to share at interval, and a cushion, or a chair if you prefer. We look forward to another great night at the movies on Thursday 19 February.

Nancy Whittaker, MMFS Secretary
