Fantastic Beasts Fundraiser

Come along to Hills Circle of Friends’ final film fundraiser for 2016!

Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them

The year is 1926, and Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) has just completed a global excursion to find and document an extraordinary array of magical creatures. Arriving in New York for a brief stopover, he might have come and gone without incident, were it not for a No-Maj (American for Muggle) named Jacob, a misplaced magical case, and the escape of some of Newt’s fantastic beasts, which could spell trouble for both the wizarding and No-Maj worlds.

WHERE: The Capri Theatre, Goodwood
WHEN: Saturday November 26th
TIME: Movie starts 6.30pm sharp

Purchase your tickets on the night from the Hills Circle of Friends volunteer table. Arrive a little early and collect some snacks from The Capri’s well stocked candy bar.  Then settle back for “the adventures of writer Newt Scamander in New York’s secret community of witches and wizards seventy years before Harry Potter reads his book in school…”

REPORTER: Mahya, what was the hardest part do you think about coming from Iran to Australia?

Writing English was another challenge.
