Every Monday during Semester, the Derkenne Courtyard in the Shortland Building is transformed into an outdoor cinema. Fully licensed with snacks available, it’s a comfortable way to get over your Monday-itis. And best of all, it’s FREE!
The film centres upon teenage Sarah, who lives in a fantasy world of myth and magic, evil spells and wondrous enchantment. She is baby-sitting her little brother when she cavalierly wishes that goblins would take him away. She gets her wish, and a coterie of goblins abduct him. She then encounters Jareth, the ruler of a mystical world one step removed from reality. He tells Sarah that the only way to get her brother back is to find her way through a M.C. Escher-like labyrinth and find the castle at the centre. As she makes her way through the maze, she faces a number of horrific challenges (like the Bog of Eternal Stench) before she finds her way to the gravity-defying castle, where her brother is being held by the evil goblins.
Staring David Bowie, Jennifer Connelly and Toby Froud.
Fantasy, rated PG, 1986
