David Lynch has brought a sublime array of stunning sights to screens large and small over the past four-plus decades, but getting Nicolas Cage to serenade Laura Dern with Elvis Presley's 'Love Me' in Wild at Heart is among the most spectacular. So it's no wonder that Pleasures Playhouse, Sydney's new six-week music and arts festival, has chosen the 1990 movie to kick off its film season — and for free as well.

Running on select Tuesdays from the end of September through till late October, Send Noods Cinema will pair classic flicks with Biang Biang Noodles and P&V's natural wine. And yes, every part of that equation is impressive. Also worth heading along for: the entire fest's venue, aka the old, usually abandoned Harbour City Cinema in Chinatown.

Wild at Heart starts the program at 7pm on Tuesday, September 27, with 1996's Queen Latifah-starring heist film Set It Off following on Tuesday, October 4.

Also on the bill: a hefty dose of the Material Girl on Tuesday, October 18 courtesy of Madonna: Truth or Dare, aka In Bed with Madonna; and, on Tuesday, October 25, 1974's rock musical comedy horror gem Phantom of the Paradise.

While Wild at Heart is free, all other sessions are ticketed, with tix on sale from 10am on Thursday, September 8.
