Freda's, Chippo's idiosyncratic neighbourhood bar, has added yet another happening to its program. From October through until February, the crew is hosting weekly film nights every Tuesday — and they won't cost you a cent.

Presented by Afterhours, the films are screening in Down/Under Space, Freda's underground gallery. The selection spans four decades of ace flicks, including 20,000 Days On Earth, Jane Pollard and Iain Forsyth's part-drama, part-doco feature depicting 24 fictitious hours in the life of Nick Cave; Jean-Luc Godard's Masculin Feminin, which captures the story of Paul, a young, disillusioned man whose girlfriend pursues a career as a pop singer; and Jonathan Auf Dur Heide's Van Diemen's Land, which tells the true tales of Alexander Pearce, a convict who escaped Macquarie Harbour with seven others, only to spend years in the Tasmanian wilderness.

Other highlights include some Aussie horror on Halloween thanks to Body Melt, ever-rewatchable high school satire Heathers and the original animated Ghost in the Shell. All films start at 7pm, but bookings aren't possible, so if you're hearts set on your flick pick, arrive early. There's room for 50 people, comfortably, and 80, if they're incredibly friendly.
