A unique cinema & research event

New early research has discovered that tears 

could be used to detect breast cancer. 

Potentially, it’s a life-changing finding. 

But the researchers need more tears for further trials.  

So Rialto Channel is inviting women to a unique 

cinema & research event where you 

can donate your tears, 

because nothing makes you cry like a good movie.


Location/Date/Details:

Academy Cinemas, 44 Lorne Street, Auckland CBD

(underneath the Auckland Central City Library).

Tuesday 1st November 2016.

We’ll be screening the film Brooklyn at 

12:30pm, 5.00pm and 8:00pm (Note: the 8:00pm session is now sold out).


Wait - how are you going to collect my tears?

The test is not at all painful. The researcher

will gently press on the skin below one eye and

lightly place the end of a strip of absorbent fabric

in your lower eyelid. You simply close your eye

for about 3 minutes before the researcher

removes the strip.

We are looking for women aged 18 plus for

this event.  If you're not eligible to donate your

tears, you can watch our on-air screenings and

feel free to donate to the NZ Breast Cancer

Foundation here:
