When the first John Wick film burst into cinemas with a finessed flurry of fantastic action scenes and all-round Keanu Reeves awesomeness, it let its star utter a particularly memorable and telling line. "Yeah, I'm thinking I'm back," the inimitable actor announced — but while the highly enjoyable movie helped remind audiences of his excellence, Reeves himself hadn't really gone anywhere.

A staple on screens for decades, Keanu boasts quite the resume, spanning cult comedies, poignant takes on Shakespeare, ace sci-fi franchises, demon-hunting and sappy romances. There's also his dalliance with the ultimate vampire, the time that he tried to save a bus that couldn't slow down, and his stellar stint as a surfing FBI agent.

All of the above are on the lineup at the Lido Cinemas event that every Reeves fan will want to head to: a nine-week Keanu Reeves-A-Thon. Every Friday night at 9pm between October 18 and December 13, the Hawthorn theatre will work through a selection of the star's hit flicks in chronological order. Start with Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure, take a trip through My Own Private Idaho, hit the waves with Point Break and dance with the undead thanks to Bram Stoker's Dracula. Then get fast and furious with Speed, enter The Matrix, go to hell with Constantine, visit The Lake House and say hello to John Wick.
