Valentine’s Day at Oliewenhuis


Fractal’s movie evenings and events at Oliewenhuis Art Museum have become extremely popular in recent years. Events including 1000 Drawings, Construct your Skin and the annual Valentine’s Day and Halloween movie nights have become fixtures of Bloemfontein’s calendar.

On Saturday 14 February 2015, Fractal will again host a Valentine’s Day movie evening on the front lawns of Oliewenhuis Art Museum, where the classic Stephen Frears-directed film, High Fidelity (PG 13), will be shown. The film features Rob Gordon, played by John Cusack, a self-confessed music lover with a poor understanding of women. After getting dumped by his current girlfriend, Laura (Iben Hjejle), he decides to look up some of his old partners in an attempt to figure out where he keeps going wrong in his relationships. With a spectacular soundtrack, including songs by The Kinks, The Velvet Underground, Bob Dylan, Joan Jett, Bruce Springsteen, and Aretha Franklin (to name but a few), and featuring an impressive supporting cast, including John Cusack, Joan Cusack, and Catherine Zeta-Jones, this is a film not to be missed.

Bring your own picnic basket and blankets and feel free to dress up for the occasion. Popcorn and cold drinks, as well as Fractal’s fashionable branded shirts and other interesting merchandise will be on sale. Entrance is R30 per person and tickets will be on sale at the gate on the night of the event, with the gate opening at 17:30.
