Screenings


Screenings are back on for 2014!

Screenings happen four times a week in 2014, every week of semester. Monday is 1pm - 2pm while Tuesday and Friday are 12pm - 2pm. Wednesday is 12pm - 1pm this semester. 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 its just not possible. 

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

Next Screening: Tuesday, 29 April 2014
Time: 1:00PM - 2:00PM

This 2013 remake of the classic series from the 70's does more than justice to the space opera genre. It flew under the radar last year due to it being released straight to disc, but was one of the best anime of the year.
