Golden Age is dedicating Friday nights to formidable horror movie heroines.
If you like scary movies, then you'll probably already know where Golden Age Cinema and Bar found the title for its latest film season. When a woman is still standing at the end of a horror flick after weathering everything from chest-bursting aliens to psychotic killers — and, when they're the last character left — they're called the final girl. The trope has been around for decades, and it's part of some of the genre's absolute best features.
You've seen it in Alien, because Sigourney Weaver's Ripley definitely fits the bill. You saw it in Scream with Neve Campbell as Sidney Prescott, too. And, now you can see it on a big screen in Surry Hills' lavish boutique cinema in its Final Girls program — with both of those films on the bill.
Screening on select Friday nights in March and April, the season kicks off with Scream on Friday, March 12, then dances its way through the original Suspiria on Friday, March 19. A road trip will go awry on Friday, March 26 thanks to The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, and everyone will be able to hear the Nostromo crew's yells in space when Alien plays on Friday, April 9. Then, a trip to the prom will finish things off, with the original Carrie screening on Friday, April 16 — just avoid the buckets of blood.
