The ANU Film Group is Canberra's largest film society, & one of AU's largest. (Long-Running Deal!) Stretch your film-budget! [At $60 / year, even regular visitors to ACT have incentive to join!]
"We screen up to 200 movies each year, ranging from the most recent Hollywood hits, to foreign and independent films not seen elsewhere, along with classic films not seen on the big screen in years.
And best of all membership is open to anyone!"
Ready for the LOW, LOW Membership Fees? Here they are:
"Membership is open to everyone and is available at any screening.
Weekly (valid 7 days from date of purchase) - $15
Semester One (valid for current programme) - $35
Annual (valid for all 2010 screenings) - $60
We do not sell tickets for individual films and payment is by cash only.
Remember - once you're a member then you can come along and see the films for free. This is excellent value so don't miss out! Get your ANUFG membership today!"
OK, so films are shown in an ANU lecture hall… still - at these prices - you could afford to bring a chair cushion (eg, from IKEA).
I was a member some years ago, & was told that each member could bring a friend, each adult could bring 1 - 2 kids; this magnifies the value!
NOTE: I have NOT yet confirmed this part of the deal; watch this space.
I do NOT represent the ANU Film Group; but I'd love to see a similar and/or affiliated Film Group in EVERY City in Australia.
: COMMENTARY on this Deal: This Club is worth Cloning in your City!
NOW THAT YOU KNOW WHAT VALUE-FOR-MONEY CANBERRANS GET, & HAVE GOT, FOR YEARS NOW… DON'T YOU THINK IT'S TIME TO ORGANISE A SIMILAR FILM GROUP, eg, AT YOUR Uni or in your City? WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?!?
SURELY, THE ANU FILM GROUP SHOULD BE HAPPY TO HIRE SOMEONE, if necessary, TO SHIP & CHECK BACK IN FILMS FROM THEIR SOURCES, ie, SO THAT ALL CITIES OF AU CAN ENJOY SUCH EXCELLENT VALUE.
ORGANISE A GROUP & MAKE IT SO. JUST FACTOR IN THE COST OF SHIPPING, IE, AFTER NEGOTIATING A DEAL FOR YOUR CITY.
Did I forget to mention: ANU Film Group film showing are (last time I checked) done in a Lecture Hall at ANU. :-)
(I wanted anyone, who isn't located so near to Canberra to read the comments, so they might help bring similar Deals to their City and/or Uni.)
