Winter Is Dark: A Film + Gin Festival

Sydney's intimate, boutique Golden Age Cinema is teaming up with Four Pillars Gin for a mini booze and film festival. Each Wednesday night in August, the 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 bill. The festival is called Winter Is Dark, 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 August 7 is 70s great Harold & Maude, followed by a trip to Fargo (the Coen Brothers-directed film, not the TV series it inspired). Or, if you're heading along with your significant other, perhaps August 14's pair of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Only Lovers Left Alive will appeal. The next week, on August 21, classic western McCabe & Mrs Miller will screen, accompanied by the French Alps-set pitch-black dramedy Force Majeure. Then, wrapping it all up on August 28 is John Carpenter's The Thing and the head-turning The Exorcist.

These dark cult flicks will all get a beverage to match, made with Four Pillar's highly coveted Bloody Shiraz gin. The screenings kick off between 6.15–6.30pm and 8.30–8.40pm each evening, but we suggest you get there a little earlier for the drinks.

Tickets are $22 for each film.
