Screening on Saturday 8th April, 2017

Below is the program for the evening of April 8th, 2017.
We have two episodes of “Sweetness and Lightning” to make up for last month
This week will be the last episode of the original “Bubblegum Crisis”, and this last episode is so long that we will need to shorten the Dinner Break to fit it in.
The winning vote for the new Late Night timeslot was “Attack on Titan” second season, and we hope to have the first episode for this week.

Thank you to everyone who last week attended our Bunnings sausage sizzle at Cannington.
