Die Hard

Nothing gets an action-movie lover in the Christmas spirit better than Die Hard. We’re excited to present the original John McClane masterpiece in partnership with the Hamilton Film Festival.

Get ready for trivia, prizes, costumes, and an awesome movie! Yippee ki-yay!

New York City policeman John McClane (Bruce Willis) is visiting his estranged wife (Bonnie Bedelia) and two daughters on Christmas Eve. He joins her at a holiday party in the headquarters of the Japanese-owned business she works for. But the festivities are interrupted by a group of terrorists who take over the exclusive high-rise, and everyone in it. Very soon McClane realizes that there's no one to save the hostages -- but him.

Who’s your favourite character - is it Alan Rickman’s skulky bad guy; is it Reginald VelJohnson’s lovable sidekick cop; Alexander Godunov’s hunky terrorist; or John McClane’s sharp-tongued take-a-beating hero? We love ‘em all.

Get dressed up in your best action hero (or villain) costume and join us December 21 at 8pm for some naughty Christmas joy.

Moulin Rouge Sing-Along!

The revolution started with our Grease Sing-Along and now we're taking it up a notch and doing it Baz Luhrmann style! Over the top, glitz'd up, stunning, sexy, showy, and sassy - that's you at our Moulin Rouge Sing-Along! Bring your best singing voice and make that crowd putty in your hands.

Experience the movie like you never have before. Don't know all the lyrics? Don't worry, we'll have them onscreen to help you out. You know you want to sing out - well, at The Zoetic it'd be wrong not to!

Complete with costume contest and prop bags, get ready for Moulin Rouge Zoetic-style. Bring the gang and do it up.

Set in 1899, this musical drama features Ewan McGregor as a young poet who defies his father by moving to "the absinthe-soaked, amoral, bohemian" neighbourhood of Montmatre. It is here that he meets the diminutive artist Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (John Leguizamo) and is drafted to write a nightclub spectacular. In this seedy world of sex and drugs, he begins a passionate but ultimately doomed love affair with the most famous courtesan (Nicole Kidman) in Paris.

Quench your thirst with a signature cocktail, and don't forget your interactive Prop Bag to bring the movie to life!
