UPDATED MARCH 22: And the winner is, The Blues Brothers. Voting is now closed.

As the nights cool down, so too does the fifth season of Silo Park Cinema. Concluding with a bang, the audience will decide their choice of film for the final evening in the summer series by casting an online vote - how's that for democratic. So, what'll it be?

The Blues Brothers, the quintessential eighties comedy about two delinquent brothers endeavouring to save the catholic boarding school and the livelihood of the nuns who raised them by staging a big blues gig to pay off the school's tax arrears. Featuring all the hits from John Lee Hooker, Sam Cooke and Elmore James.

Moonrise Kingdom, the modern classic by cult auteur Wes Anderson, sees a mammoth cast of acting talent from the likes of Bill Murray, Tilda Swinton, Edward Norton, Jason Schwartzman, Bruce Willis and Frances McDormand play support roles to a pair of young actors. Off the coast of New England in the 1960s, a blossoming relationship sees two young lovers run away together, resulting in an island wide search, a host of interesting characters, and probably the most applaudable exclamation of the word 'bimbo' ever.

The Dark Horse, the touching 2014 drama based on a real-life story and touted as one of the greatest New Zealand films ever made. Declared best film at the New Zealand, Seattle, San Francisco and Rotterdam international film festivals, The Dark Horse stars Cliff Curtis as Genesis Potini, a Kiwi chess player who suffers from bipolar disorder, who finds balance and positivity in coaching local at risk youth the art of the game.
