Aus­tralia Fair, Coolan­gatta, Pa­cific Fair, Robina, Nerang Cine­plex, Tweed City, Har­bour Town There are big changes brew­ing in Gotham, but if Bat­man wants to save the city from the Joker’s hos­tile takeover, he may have to drop the lone vig­i­lante thing, try to work with oth­ers and maybe, just maybe, learn to lighten up.

LOV­ING (PG)

The Arts Cen­tre From ac­claimed writer/ di­rec­tor Jeff Ni­chols (Mud, Mid­night Spe­cial), Lov­ing tells the true story of Richard and Mil­dred Lov­ing, who fell in love and mar­ried in 1958, de­fy­ing Vir­ginia’s laws against in­ter­ra­cial mar­riage. Jailed then ban­ished from their home state, the Lov­ings spent the next nine years search­ing for a way back home, tak­ing their civil rights case all the way to the Supreme Court. Driven by pow­er­ful per­for­mances from Joel Edger­ton and Ruth Negga,

Lov­ing is a beau­ti­fully crafted, warm-hearted film, at once an ur­gent, rel­e­vant drama and an in­ti­mate story of the heart.
