Spinning tops at the ready — it's time to enter the dream within a dream that is Christopher Nolan's filmography. With Oppenheimer, the British writer/director's 12th feature, on its way to the big screen in July, Pentridge Cinema is dedicating its regular Palace Encore! retro screening program to his flicks for two action-packed months.

Memento, The Prestige, Inception, Interstellar, Dunkirk, Tenet — they're all on the lineup, with the season running from Friday, May 12–Friday, July 14. Largely, the sessions take place at 6.30pm on Friday nights and cost $10 for Palace members and $15 otherwise, but there is one big exception: a day-long marathon of The Dark Knight Trilogy (aka Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises) from 11am on Saturday, June 17, where you'll pay $25–30 for grim caped-crusader antics.

At Beyond the Infinite: The Influences and Films of Christopher Nolan, as the program is called, there's another dream layer to plunge into as well. Palace is also celebrating the films that've left an imprint on Nolan and his work, which opens up the door to a couple of other masterpieces.

Everyone should see Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey on the silver screen at least once. The same goes for Ridley Scott's OG Blade Runner, too. And, also on the ten-week bill is a jump back almost a century with 1927's highly influential German expressionist gem Metropolis.
