What’s On: Feb 20 – 26


Parallel Earths with Jonah J Jameson, Penny Farthing Racing in Tasmania, LEGO and Collectables Fairs in Brisbane and Perth and Junky Comics closes its doors. Here is your guide to Everything happening this week in Geek across Australia.

1On Streaming/TV

On Thursday Season Two of the awesome J.K. Simmons series Counterpart begins on SBS. Why should you care? Parallel Earths and Cold War Spies are combined in this series which could only be improved with also demanding pictures of Spider-Man. Better yet, if you aren’t already watching this series you can catch up on Season One via SBS OnDemand.

2In Cinemas

In Cinemas this week if you are looking for latest releases you can catch the Laurel and Hardy biopic, Stan & Ollie with John C. Reilly and Steve Coogan. Alternatively, if you are after something more special event’ish we have to give a shoutout to the 35mm screening of Fight Club at the Ritz Cinema in Sydney or the IMAX screening of Pulp Fiction in Melbourne.

3Stuff To Go Do

Not sure what to do this week? Aside from the Fringe Festival still on in Perth, there is tons happening. Collectors will want to check out the Toy, LEGO and Collectable Markets in Perth and Brisbane this weekend. But our pick for events this week is the National Penny Farthing Championships in Evandale in Tasmania, you may not have known this was a thing but now your life may not be complete without seeing it for yourself on Saturday.

And just one more, we have to give a shout out to Junky Comics in Brisbane closing it’s doors this Friday. Junky has been a heavy supporter of independent comics in Australia with a majority of it’s listings dedicated to it. If you have some time maybe stop by and pick up some books before they close their doors.
