Finally the exams are over and our new season has started. We can take a step back, and look forward to the rest of the season, which is already shaping up to be one one of the best we’ve ever had. After an excellent Sci-Fi packed weekend, our full lineup can be found on our website, but this week:
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Tuesday 27th January at 19:00
The first film in our regular Tuesday slot this season is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The villainous criminal organization known as the Foot Clan has been terrorizing New York City. The future seems bleak, until four brothers emerge from the sewers as the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Wakolda (The German Doctor), Wednesday 28th January at 19:30
This weeks showing from the Phoenix Film Society is the Argentine film Walkolda. Set in 1960, the film depicts Nazi war criminal, Josef Mengele as he is exiled to South America. Famous for his abominable human experiments that he performed in Auschwitz, a family take him in, unaware that they were housing one of the most dangerous criminals in history.
Acclaimed at many international film festivals, Wakolda is definitely worth a watch.
