What’s On: Mar 13 – 19


This week everything is Awesome with the LEGO Movie 2 finally hitting Australian Cinemas, Xena Warrior Princess on your small screen and Madfest starting it’s 2019 season in Sydney. Here is your complete guide to Everything happening this week in Geek across Australia.

1On Streaming/TV

If you are looking for something to stay indoors this week and Season 5 of Arrested Development on Netflix (on Friday) is not on your watch list then from Thursday Foxtel will be airing Xena: Warrior Princess. Starting from season one, get your Lucy Lawless/Sam Raimi fix every weeknight from 6:30 PM.

2In Cinemas

Everything is Awesome in Cinemas (and selected outdoor/rooftop cinemas) this week with The LEGO Movie 2 out across Australia. Picking up directly after the first movie you can check out our full spoiler-free review later this week.

Also in cinemas, we want to give a shout out to McFlyFest at the Ritz Cinema in Sydney. It’s all Back to Future with the entire trilogy playing back to back on the big screen this Sunday.

3Stuff To Go Do

Looking to head out this week? Kicking off for 2019 is MadFest Anime Festival in Sydney this weekend. Touring the country throughout the year Sydney is first with everything anime culture and brought to you by Madman.

If you are closer to Canberra than Sydney you might already be heading to Goulburn Comic Con at the Goulburn Mulwaree Library on Saturday. We love cons outside the capital cities so make sure you support this one if you are near so it can bigger and better every year!

If you are hunting that hard to find toy or collectable then you might want to checkout the Rockingham Intergalatic Stock Exchange just south of Perth on Sunday. Cosplay is not only welcome but encouraged.

And lastly, if you haven’t been to the Star Wars Exhibition at the Sydney Powerhouse (or even if you have) we are currently giving away a double pass to check out this massive event of official Star Wars awesome. To enter just head over to the competition page.
