Sinematek: Winter Darkness

A weekly cinema at LongPlay where tickets are just $10 a pop.

Sinematek is a roving movie night, and it's popping up at Fitzroy North's LongPlay. It'll show a film at the bar every Sunday night in June — and tickets are just $10 a pop.

The theme for the month is Winter Darkness, and the four  chosen films will all celebrate the archetypal conflicts of one's self and surroundings. And there's certainly some twisted and conflicted flicks on the agenda.

It'll kick things off with Jesus Camp by Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady: a documentary about children attending a born again Christian 'Kids of Fire' camp. Then, it's Al Pacino in William Friedkin's Cruising, as he goes undercover in the leather gay bar scene to catch a serial killer. Penelope Spheeris's doco about punk groups on the US west coast in the 80s, The Decline of Western Civilization is next, followed by Jessica Hausner's Lourdes, a tale of a wheelchair-bound woman who experiences a miracle in the Pyrenees.

Aiming for transcendental cinema, Sinematek will make sure you're feeling even more warm and cosy with LongPlay's winter menu of gnocchi and risotto. Pop in one Sunday for a film, a plate of warmth and a good time.
