What’s On: May 15 – 21


Between John Wick Chapter 3 in cinemas, the Final episode of Game of Thrones and Battle Arena Melbourne this week looks like it might have a Thanos level body count by the time you are done. Here is your guide to Everything happening this week in Geek across Australia.

1On Streaming/TV

Look, we could tell you all about everything on Netflix and Stan this week but you don’t care. The final episode of Game of Thrones is coming this Monday night on Foxtel.

There is a host of GoT events happening this week (and expect a couple next week too) but if there isn’t one near you invite your friends over and have your own GoT party while you watch the episode. THEN obsess over the details during the Thrones360 after-show also on Foxtel with Hex from Good Games.

2In Cinemas

Baba Yaga returns this week with John Wick Chapter 3 hitting cinemas across Australia on Thursday. The continuation of one of our favourite action series picks up where Chapter 2 left off and we have been hanging out for it. Check back later this week for our full spoiler-free review.

3Stuff To Go Do

Melbourne gamers don’t need to be told but for everyone else, the major eSports event for arcade stick style fighting games is happening this weekend with BAM 11! The Battle Arena Melbourne, now on its 11th time around, is a huge even run by CouchWarriors and even if you aren’t competing but love all things Mortal Kombat/Street Fighter/Injustice this should be on your calendar too to check out.
