Sword Art Online -Progressive- Aria of a Starless Night POWA Movie Outing

Location: Event Cinemas Whitford
Date: December 12th
Time: 7:00PM

POWA is off to the cinemas once again in a special after-party event following our final screening of the year! And what better way to celebrate than by watching the first part in a cinematic reimagining of the first arc in one of the most popular anime around!

The movie starts at 7:00pm, but as we cannot book ahead, we cannot guarantee seats in the cinema. Ensure that you arrive early enough to purchase your tickets at the counter so you don’t end up disappointed. This will be a screening in the original Japanese subtitled version.

Movie Synopsis:
“Asuna Yuuki was a girl in the ninth grade who’d never had anything to do with online games when she accidentally put on the NerveGear that fateful day. The game master speaks; This may be a game, but it’s not something you play. “Game Over” means you die in the real world.

Hearing this, the players are sent into a state of confusion, and pandemonium reigns in the game. One of these players is Asuna. Despite not even knowing the rules of this new world, she sets out on her journey to the floating steel castle of Aincrad, its apex not yet visible.

As she continues to live on in this world where death is always a step away, Asuna has a fateful encounter followed by a parting. Despite being at the mercy of this strange reality, she fights on valiantly until someone appears before her: the solitary swordsman, Kirito…”

POWA Screening, 5th December 2021

Location: Joondalup Library, Upstairs Meeting Room

POWA’s regular weekly screenings continue with our penultimate screening of the year!

Last week, we voted in the post-apocalyptic genre spanner ‘WorldEnd’ into our Drama slot. We also made sure to keep watching the first season of ‘Fruits Basket’ to its conclusion with a vote from members.

This week, we’ll be deciding whether we stand to attention or drift off on our comedy ‘Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle’. We are also coming to the end of the increasingly complex mystery of ‘In/Spectre’ with the final episode. Instead of voting in a new Mature show next week, the slot will instead be taken over by this year’s POWA Retrospective!

Speaking of, we’re still taking suggestions from members on a variety of categories to celebrate each and every series we finished watching in 2021. The form to do so will be open until this coming Thursday: https://forms.gle/Pj45hynmYRnX3poi6

Entry for our weekly screenings is $4 for members and $5 for guests. However, your first time is free! Every entry prior to our break receives a raffle ticket for a weekly prize. We will be in the upstairs meeting room, of Joondalup Library. Our doors will open at the same time as the library – 1:00PM and we will start screening at 1:30PM, leaving you time to find the room and settle down with some drinks and snacks.


This Week’s Schedule:
1:00PM – Library Doors Open
1:30PM – Fruits Basket (2019) – Episode 21 (Slice of Life/Romance/Arthouse)
2:00PM – Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle – Episode 4 (Comedy, Voting)

POWA Screening, 28th November 2021

Location: Joondalup Library, Upstairs Meeting Room

POWA’s regular weekly screenings continue!

Last week, we finished up the second season of ‘Golden Kamuy’ with a dramatic cliffhanger! May we all hope that season three makes it to the club at some point. For now, we’re looking for a Drama show to replace it in our line-up. Suggestions are already open on our Facebook group and website.

In terms of voting, ‘Kaiji’ survived its first vote last week! This week we’ll be doing the same with ‘Fruits Basket’, which is up for its final vote. With several shows coming close to ending, along with POWA coming close to an end-of-year break, there’s a lot to get excited about!

POWA will also be running its annual Retrospective on the year during our final screening, December 12th. We’re taking suggestions from members on a variety of categories to celebrate each and every series we finished watching in 2021. The form to do so is here.
