What’s On Screen

Take a pre-emptive strike against the downpour this weekend, and get to the cinema. From 4:30pm everyone’s favourite funny (and leading ) lady Melissa Mccarthy stars in ‘Life of The Party’ at The Flicks.

Or get your culture on from the offset and get over to META House. At 4pm they will be showing ‘Kim’s Story- The Road From Vietnam’. The film tells the story of that infamous image from the Vietnam War of a naked child running and screaming in agony from napalm burns. To keep the upbeat tempo of the weekend on track then stay with META House. At 7pm, they will show ‘Fire at The Sea.’ This timely documentary looks at the European migration crisis.


What’s On Stage

The Hard Rock Cafe will be kicking of the ‘choooones’ this weekend with DJ Marcus Ill taking over Happy Hour from 4pm- all the more reason to bunk off early from work. From 8pm, the hard rocking Aussie Moi Tiet will take stage at Alchemy.

Ah, it’s nice when journalists can be journalists.

What Else?

The Canadians are probably too polite to mention this but, they kind of have a big day this weekend. Mad Monkey will be putting on a big celebration for Canada day, eh. They will be celebrating with plenty of drink promos and, of course, poutine (chips and cheese, basically).

Finally if you actually want to do some good for our city this weekend then Farm To Table are hosting a plastic clean up from BKK 1. What’s more is that they have promised to create a ‘big surprise’ with all the plastic loot.
