CAST - Sullivan StapletonRodrigo SantoroEva GreenDavid Wenham

SYNOPSIS - Based on Frank Miller's latest graphic novel XERXES, and told in the breathtaking visual style of the blockbuster movie 300, this new chapter of the epic saga takes the action to a fresh battle on the sea as Greek general Themistokles (Sullivan Stapleton) attempts to unite all of Greece by leading the charge that will change the course of the war.  300: RISE OF AN EMPIRE  pits Themistokles against the massive invading Persian forces led by mortal-turned-god Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro), and Artemesia (Eva Green), vengeful commander of the Persian navy.

GENRES - Action | War Drama

CLASSIFICATION - MA15+ (Mature/adult themes: Sustained sequences of stylized bloody violence, a sex scene, nudity & some coarse language)



WHERE TO MEET - The group will gather upstairs in the cinema's Coffee Lounge, then head into the cinema a few minutes before the scheduled screening time (otherwise we risk getting bad seats!). The Coffee Lounge bar serves a nice range of hot and cold drinks, as well as some delicious sweets! Please regroup in the Coffee Lounge after the movie, and we'll go from there to a nearby restaurant for dinner and drinks.

TICKETS - Being the opening week, this is likely to be a busy nite! To avoid the hassle of lining up at the box office, it's recommended that you buy your tickets online prior to the event and collect them at the automated ticket machine in the cinema foyer. PLEASE NOTE - Cineplex places a limit on the number of online ticket sales. If you miss-out, simply come a little early and buy one at the box office.

DINNER & DRINKS AFTER -  Let's make a night of it! If you'd like to join us for drinks and a bite to eat after the movie, you're most welcome!. There are plenty of excellent eateries very close to the cinema, all with reasonable prices. 


FREE PARKING for up to 4 hours is available under the cinema via Ernest St, close to the Grey St intersection. At busy times there can be a delay in entering the carpark, because the system is automated and only allows a car into the carpark when another car leaves. Just be patient, you WILL eventually get in! Remember to have your parking ticket validated at the box office when you leave the cinema. Be careful not the exceed the 4-hour parking limit, as a hefty $35 penalty applies.

Google image details of the carpark entrance are available at the following web address:

$2 CONTRIBUTION - It would be sincerely appreciated if members could contribute a $2 coin at the event to help cover our group's ongoing fees. Please give your coin to the Event Host. Thanks so much!
