Movies this weekend in Dili: "Thor" and "How To Train Your Dragon"

The Cinema Lorosa'e team is on its way back from three nights' movie screenings in the remote Timor-Leste exclave of Oecusse, where more than 3,000 people turned up to watch the shows. More on this later. However, because they will still be en route on Friday, there is NO Sunset Fair movie this week. 

But we'll be back on the case on Saturday and Sunday at Government House. On Saturday, we'll be screening "Thor" and on Sunday "How To Train Your Dragon".  Both evenings the show starts at 7pm.

The epic adventure Thor spans the Marvel Universe from present day Earth to the mystical realm of Asgard. At the center of the story is The Mighty Thor, a powerful but arrogant warrior whose reckless actions reignite an ancient war. As a result, Thor is banished to Earth where he is forced to live among humans. When the most dangerous villain of his world sends its darkest forces to invade Earth, Thor learns what it takes to be a true hero. (C) Paramount Pictures.

In "How To Train Your Dragon", the son of a Viking chief must capture a dragon in order to mark his passage into manhood and prove his worthiness to the tribe. The movie, directed by Chris Sanders and Dean DeBlois' is an adaptation of Cressida Cowell's popular children's book. Gerard Butler, America Ferrera, Jonah Hill, Jay Baruchel, and Christopher Mintz-Plasse provide voices for the DreamWorks Animation production.(from,  Jason Buchanan, Rovi)
