Catch A Movie

You’ve probably already watched Deadpool 2 or are planning to. We suggest you avoid the weekend moviegoers rush and head over to the American Centre this Saturday to catch the screening of the film Frost/Nixon. We know press freedom is important and that is why watching this Ron Howard (yeah, the same one who directed Apollo 13) movie retelling the post-Watergate television interviews between British talk-show host David Frost and former U.S. president Richard Nixon is vital. Get more deets on this here.
