Golden Age Cinema and Bar is dedicating winter weekends to shady characters and shadowy stories.
Throughout autumn, Golden Age Cinema and Bar flirted with darkness. It contemplated fate, twisty rendezvous and chance meetings, in fact, all through its season-long film program. Now, with winter upon us, it's still exploring the shadows — this time via a lineup that it has fitting called Shadow Play.
Expect to see a few shady characters grace the Surry Hills venue's big screen each weekend between Saturday, June 5–Sunday, April 15. Expect noir thrillers, twisty crime sagas, all-night adventures and quests for eternal youth, too. Private detectives will make more than a few appearances, as will femme fatales. And more than one acclaimed actor will play famed fictional PI Philip Marlowe.
Among the highlights: The Big Lebowski, which kicks off the season with a big dose of The Dude; Blade Runner, because this Ridley Scott-directed dystopian tale never gets old; After Hours, Martin Scorsese's Manhattan-set after-dark caper; and Inherent Vice, which sees Paul Thomas Anderson spin a shaggy dog tale in 70s Los Angeles. Everything from The Maltese Falcon, The Big Sleep and Le cercle rouge to The Long Goodbye, To Die For and Death Becomes Her also features — screening at various times on Saturdays and Sundays.
