The SA branch has been offered 5 double passes to an advance screening of the upcoming film The Death and Life of Otto Bloom, staring Xavier Samuel and Rachel Ward, about the chronicle of the life and great love of an extraordinary man who experiences time in reverse – passing backwards through the years while remembering the future.

The screening will take place at Cinema Nova, on Wednesday March 15th at 6.45pm.

To register for the double passes please email me asap. Limit of 1 double pass per member, on a 1st come 1st served basis. I will let members who have been successful know via return email.


The film charts Bloom's rise from scientific oddity to international superstar as he searches for love and meaning in this strange, backwards world.

When the world proves to be not yet ready for Bloom's radical ideas, his fall from grace is as swift as it is tragic. But for Bloom, the end is only the beginning…
