About The Event

DATE & TIME: Saturday evening 21st September 6:15 for 6:30pm start

STORY: Poppy Hill is set in Yokohama in 1963.  From up on Poppy Hill, Umi raises signal flags to the ships each morning… for her father who passed away on a boat during the Korean War.  At school, the club house is threatened with demolition, and as they work to save the building, the story follows the blossoming romance of Umi and Shun.  Nothing inappropriate for children.  It’s a happy ending. :-)   


SUITABILITY:  Rated G but the themes are probably difficult for the younger ones to connect to, hence recommended for older children and adults.  While the internet suggests age 8 and above, my personal feeling is that age 10 or 12 would be better. (I’m very conservative).  Recommended for the following classes:

Tues 5:10

Wed 5:10

Thurs 5:20 self defence class most welcome!

Fri 5:10

Sat 2:45

Sat 4:00

PARENTS and family are also welcome to stay for the movie.

3. Dinner, Movie & Cake $10 (for 4pm class only)

MOVIE BOOKING: Please book the correct ticket(s) on this web site so that we have a good idea of numbers and can cater accordingly.

SNACKS: Popcorn and ice cream will be provided during the movie.  

DINNER $10 - 4:00pm class ONLY: a light dinner will be served after your class (so that your parents don’t need to pick you up, feed you and bring you back again).  Please purchase $10 ‘Saturday Movie Dinner’ tickets as well as booking for the movie if you are in the 4:00pm class and will stay for dinner.  

CAKE:  Birthday cake will be served AFTER the movie, at 8:15pm.  PARENTS you are most welcome to come back for cake, if not staying for the movie.  Please book ‘Cake only’ tickets if you are coming for cake only.

START TIME: 6:15 for 6:30am SHARP start.  Please arrive early so you have plenty of time to get settled.
