What’s On: Jul 10 – 16


Smash Anime in Sydney and HubCon in the Blue Mountains, time travel thanks to the Abbey Medieval Festival, Drax takes an Uber and NINE-NINE! Here is your guide to Everything happening this week in Geek across Australia.

On Streaming/TV

NINE-NINE! A lot of awesome shows survived the cancel hammer last year and one of our favourites is back with Season 6 this week. While you can catch Seasons 1-5 on Netflix you will need Foxtel to watch the latest season on Sunday on the Universal channel.

In Cinemas

We have had a pretty big few weeks in movies and you probably need a break with something made for munching on popcorn and not a lot of thinking on your part. In cinemas this week across Australia you can choose from the Action/Comedy of Stuber or the Crocodile (or Alligator?) attack during a flood in Crawl.

Also this week in cinemas, sorta, exclusive to Sydney is Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince in concert! Rewatch the next chapter in the epic Harry Potter series accompanied by the Sydney Symphony Orchestra playing the score live. There are a limited number of shows this week but tickets are still available.

Stuff To Go Do

Sydney Anime fans know what’s happening this weekend with SMASH! on in Sydney back for 2019. Smash is a staple in the Anime Con scene exclusive to Sydney happening every year with everything you love from your cons with special guests, awesome merch and even more awesome cosplay but everything Anime!

If you are more Western Pop Culture inclined then also don’t forget about HubCon on this weekend in the Blue Mountains. Only an hour from central Sydney this con has a heap of local guests, cosplay and a lot more. Make sure you support this one so it can get bigger and better every year!

If you are in South East Queensland and love all things Medieval then you will definitely want to get to the Abbey Medieval Festival on near Caboolture all weekend. This is a hugely popular event with around 30,000 visitors expected to check out this fair with all things 600AD-1600AD including Jousting, Falconry and a whole lot more.

And if you are in Melbourne or even heading there in the next few weeks don’t forget to check out the Marvel: Journey of Heroes Art Exhibition at the Central Shot Tower. It is happening until September with art celebrating Marvel’s 80th birthday with such local artists as Patrick Brown, Jon Sommariva, David Yardin, Ben Templesmith and Wayne Nichols.
