in partnership with
Your Friday night dose of nostalgia.
From February to June this year, Event Cinemas at the Myer Centre will screen cult film classics. You won't need to take a day off to head to one of the screenings (they're on Friday night every fortnight) — but the program does start with the most famous movie character that did, Ferris Bueller of Ferris Bueller's Day Off.
The cult hits will keep coming whether you're seeing them for the first time or the twentieth. Dose up on nostalgia with Stand By Me and E.T. the Extra Terrestrial, or adopt Tyler Durden's mindset by watching Fight Club. Johnny Depp (sans banned puppies) will make an appearance in Edward Scissorhands, before the festival goes gangster with The Untouchables and The Godfather Part II.
One flick isn't always enough, so select evenings will screen double features. On February 17 it's The Fly and Gattaca (for those who like their sci-fi bleak) and RoboCop and Flash Gordon on April 28 (for some trashy fun).
Screenings start at 7pm on Friday nights (double features start at 6.30pm).
