You'll be stocking up on soundtracks after Projections of Dance, a new late night film program at the Astor Theatre in St Kilda. Presented by alternative dance music media collective 6am at the Garage, the inaugural calendar features a trio of titles that chart the history and influence of electronic dance music.
Screenings take place on select Tuesday evenings, beginning on October 20 with Berlin Calling, about a Berlin DJ, played by musician Paul Kalkbrenner, who is institutionalised for drug abuse. Next up on November 24 comes Shut Up and Play the Hits, the acclaimed documentary about the final days of LCD Soundsystem. Finally on December 15, Mia Hansen-Love's Eden chronicles the rise and fall of a pioneering DJ over a twenty year period against the backdrop of the exploding house movement in France.
All three screenings will be preceded by sets from local DJs — and naturally, the Astor Bar will be open all night.
