Wild Winter Nights: A Film + Gin Festival
Golden Age is hosting a film festival that pairs double features with Bloody Shiraz gin cocktails.
Sydney's boutique Golden Age Cinema is teaming up with Four Pillars Gin for a mini booze and film festival. Each Wednesday night in June, the intimate 56-seat Surry Hills spot is hosting double bills paired with Bloody Shiraz gin cocktails.
It's quite the lineup, too, with a little something for everyone on the program. The festival is called Wild Winter Nights, however, so that's the kind of tone it's going for — whether horror flicks, comedies, dramas or romance movies are hitting the screen.
First up on July 7 is early 00s favourite Donnie Darko, followed by Jordan Peele's Get Out. Then, the next week, comes The Wicker Man and Midsommar — because, yes, Golden Age's curators are having fun with their nightly lineups. Heading along with your significant other? Perhaps July 21's pair of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and The Lobster will appeal. Lastly, wrapping it all up on July 28 is eerie sci-fi feature Under the Skin and Gaspar Noe's intoxicating Climax.
These dark cult flicks will all get a beverage to match, made with Four Pillar's highly coveted Bloody Shiraz gin. The first screenings each not kick off at either 6.10pm or 6.20pm, with the second movies starting at 8.30pm each evening — but we suggest you get there a little earlier for the drinks.
Tickets are $22.50 for each film.
