What’s On: Jun 5 – 11


Want to see Dark Phoenix in Cinemas? Wish you could get to E3? Heading to OzComiccon Melbourne? Or maybe you want free tickets to the Girl Gamer Festival in Sydney this weekend? We might be able to help you out with some of those. Here is your guide to Everything happening this week in Geek across Australia.

1On Streaming/TV

Technically in cinemas but still streaming on Monday is your ticket to the Green Carpet. Microsoft is bringing E3 that little bit closer with their massive 2-hour block for E3 streaming live to cinemas across Australia. Tickets are available which will net you a seat to the stream Monday morning, a fancy breakfast, swag AND a screening of Dark Phoenix right after.

Also in streaming, this week is the massive Girl Gamer Sydney Festival. It will be streaming on Twitch but if you can make it to the event in Sydney we have some free tickets to give away below!

2In Cinemas

In Cinemas across Australia this Thursday is the final chapter in the Fox X-Men reboot that started with X-Men First Class. With the X-Men going back to Marvel/Disney we are sure this won’t be the last of the X-Men on the big screen. Check back later this week for our full spoiler-free review.

Also, this coming Monday is our favourite ongoing Pop Culture film festival – In the House across Australia. There are only 4 films left in the current season but Monday do the truffle shuffle to our nearest supporting Event Cinemas for The Goonies.

3Stuff To Go Do

This weekend is a big one if you are in Melbourne with OzComicCon. You don’t really need us to tell you what one of the biggest cons of the year is but if you don’t expect 2 days of gaming, cosplay, merch and special guests like Battlestar Galactica’s Tricia Helfer and featured cosplayers such as JusZ Cosplay.

Also for lovers of Speculative Fiction don’t forget about Continuum 15 happening this weekend also in Melbourne. Running from Friday until Monday for the public holiday in Victoria if you are looking for like minded individuals for panels on Space Dystopias or the pros of Tacos this is the event for you (there are no cons to Tacos. Don’t @ us)

Enjoying the LIVID Festival in Sydney? Make sure you also pickup some tickets for the massive Girl Gamer Sydney Festival also happening this weekend. Registration may have finished by you can still get some tickets to watch the CS:GO, Overwatch and Super Smash in addition to panels and cosplay comps. If you love eSports this is definitely one to support! AND WE HAVE FREE TICKETS TO GIVE AWAY!!!!

Jump over to the Girl Gamer Festival Website right now and enter the code ‘freeggf2019’. We have limited tickets to give away so when they are gone, well you can still pick up your own tickets because this is going to be awesome and you don’t want to miss it.
