Welcome to Dome Cinema

The Dome room has long had a reputation for bewitching its guests. Lingering between the pools of soft light glowing down from the domes, wondering where in the world they are. Many think of her thick red carpet, they've kicked off many a shoe to dance bare foot where billiard balls once fell in boisterous games of old. Likewise, the Dome Cinema is a charming mixture of the modern and fun, of old elegance and romance. Somehow it makes you feel right at home.

We invite you to come cosy up with a drink, and a pizza. For some good old fashioned entertainment, an experience to engage the senses and capture the imagination, welcome to the Dome Cinema...

AIK'N'SIDES COMEDY TOUR

FRIDAY 6 MARCH (further details to come)

After a stand out show at the Christchurch Fringe Festival, Wellington’s Aiken Hutcheson along with
Christchurch lads Cameron McLeod and Snap presented by RuseWebsites are taking their stand up show, Aik ‘N’ Sides, around the country. The show has been accepted into the Dunedin and Auckland Fringe Festivals, as well as the New Zealand Fringe Festival held in Wellington.

Not content with just hitting the Fringe Circuit, these ambitious young comics have decided to
use their spare time between Fringe shows touring down the Nation. The trio will be hitting
Tuaranga, Whakatane, Gisborne, Napier, Palmerston North, Christchurch, Queenstown, Timaru, and several yet to be announced locations.

Aiken Hutcheson has been performing for over a year and a half, and in that time he’s become
a well known name within the Wellington scene, gigging regularly and often hosting open mic nights. For Aiken, this is the chance to take his career to greater heights. That’s a tall joke,
Aiken is very tall.

Snap presented by RuseWebsites comes from a radio background, most well known as the
drive time host on Chch’s Pulzar FM. Snap quickly found himself at home on stage and has
been gigging regularly. A party ambassador and local sex icon, Snap will give you an unforgettable experience.

Cameron McLeod has already impressed Chch audiences with his exceptional array of life
stories. Homo-eroticism on the rugby field, his mother asking him about bondage... Cameron is
a man who has lived, and it's a life worth re-telling.

The boys will be filming their antics on tour and releasing an episode each night, so keep an eye
out on Youtube for the Fringe to Fringe to Fringe Webseries.

On the return from their honeymoon, however, and on account of their vows, Ben gets fired from his long-time job as a choir director for a co-ed Catholic school. Suddenly, with no real savings to count on, the couple can’t afford the rent on their small Chelsea apartment.

Deciding to temporarily live apart until they can find an affordable new home, George moves in with two cops who live downstairs while Ben lands in Brooklyn with his family.

With diners fleeing in all directions, mother Ebba calls for her husband Tomas as she tries to protect their children. Tomas, meanwhile, is running for his life... The anticipated disaster failed to occur, and yet the family's world has been shaken to its core, a question mark hanging over their father in particular. Tomas and Ebba's marriage now hangs in the balance as Tomas struggles desperately to reclaim his role as family patriarch." (Cannes Film Festival)

COMING EARLY 2015

Rousing, true story comedy-drama on the bitter 1984 Miners' strike in Margaret Thatcher's Britain, which fosters an unlikely union of solidarity between embattled mineworkers and the militant gay and lesbian community. Stars Bill Nighy, Dominic West and Imelda Staunton.

At the Gay Pride March in London '84, a group of gay and lesbian activists decide to raise money to support the families of the striking miners. Though the Union seems embarrassed to receive their support, the activists are not deterred. They decide to ignore the Union and go direct to the miners - setting off in a mini bus to the a village in deepest Wales, to make their donation in person. So begins this true story of two seemingly alien communities who form a surprising partnership.

Mr Turner

Running time: 2 hr 29 mins
COMING EARLY 2015

From writer-director Mike Leigh (Another Year), an exploration of the life and work of the eccentric British impressionist great J.M.W. Turner (1775-1851). Stars Leigh's frequent collaborators Timothy Spall (The King’s Speech) in a Best Actor award-winning performance at Cannes 2014, Paul Jesson (Coriolanus) and Ruth Sheen (Vanity Fair).

"Profoundly affected by the death of his father, loved by a housekeeper he takes for granted and occasionally exploits sexually, Turner forms a close relationship with a seaside landlady with whom he eventually lives incognito in Chelsea, where he dies. Throughout this, he travels, paints, stays with the country aristocracy, visits brothels, is a popular if anarchic member of the Royal Academy of Arts, has himself strapped to the mast of a ship so that he can paint a snowstorm, and is both celebrated and reviled by the public and by royalty." (Cannes Film Festival)

STRANGELY AROUSING

Strangely Arousing are an established and playful group of young men from Rotorua
who, after enjoying recent success are looking to progress on their musical journey.
We banqueted on the finest dining table of victory and took out the National 2014
Battle of the Bands which was added to our accumulation of accolades including 2013
Smokefree Pacifica Beats National champs and 2nd place getters at the NZ ZEAL Battle
of the Bands in 2013. This, infused with the experience we have gained sharing the
stage with musical giants such as Damien Marley, Fat Freddy’s Drop, dDub and
ManaLion, has given us the knowledge we have used to navigate the quietly
competitive nature of the NZ music industry.

With music more potent than viagra, Strangely Arousing have trumped the Auckland
pub-scene and used the profits to self-fund a debut EP which includes a culmination of
tracks recorded at York St. and The Lab. We intend to relocate this kind of work-ethic
and apply it wherever our plane lands.

Currently we are working towards expanding our fan-base, as not enough people have
enjoyed having their listening holes moistened by our waves of sound.

With organic vibes derived from the roots of Reggae, Rock, Dub and Funk combined
with a compelling live performance Strangely Arousing is sure to ignite any
atmosphere.

Tickets $10 on the door

ANTHONIE TONNON - SUCCESSOR

Running time: 8pm (bar from 6pm)
On a torrential evening in November 2014, to a hundred people crowded in the time­warp glow of
Auckland's Old Folks Association Hall, Anthonie Tonnon christened his backing band (still up to that
point nameless, after almost two years of existence) The Successors ­ revealing the name of the first
record to be released under Tonnon's own name.

“Absolutely masterful performance from AnthonieTonnon last night. One of the best I've seen.” Hayden Eastmond­ Mein, The Pantograph Punch.

The album features nine songs, coming in at just under 42 minutes. Prose, rather than poetic writing,
influences the lyrics ­ most of which are written as second person narratives. “I wanted to write songs which, when you heard them, could feel like a condensed experience of reading [The New Yorker’s] “Reporter At Large” column,” says Tonnon.

Anthonie Tonnon will perform his album Successor in a solo set that is not to be missed. "A New Zealand act you need to know about" Billboard.com.
