Meetup time: 6.30pm. [Note from the theatre organisers: "We recommend arriving 30mins before the show starts."] Meetup place: Bar area near ticket desk Film start time: 7pm QTheatre: Rangatira Loft - Floor section Tickets: I have pre-purchased online - my seat is AG-11.

Tickets are likely to go early also. https://www.qtheatre.co.nz/opening-night-assholes-theory Opening night tickets include a ticket for the screening, a glass of bubbles and an invitation to the opening night event at Citizen Q. SYNOPSIS With venomous social media, resurgent authoritarianism and rampant narcissism threatening to trash civilisation as we know it, the time has come for Assholes: A Theory. Ever get the impression that assholes are taking over? A timely and novel hypothesis investigates the breeding grounds of contemporary asshole culture and searches for signs of civility in a rude’n’nasty universe. Lively commentary is provided by the likes of actor John Cleese and Italian LGBTQ activist Vladimir Luxuria, who famously locked horns with Silvio Berlusconi, the p***y-grabbing prototype of the 21st century demagogue.
