Nineties nostalgia, eat your heart out – head to the independent cinema for intergalactic animation-meets-live-action basketball, with Space Jam-themed subs and live DJ sets.

If you want a throwback to pre-Flash basic HTML websites, visit the Space Jam website] for a good time. If you're feeling nostalgic for the Loony Tunes crew and out-of-this-world basketball, rewatch the 1996 film. And if you want to catch the reboot, visit Lido Cinemas.

The Hawthorn cinema is celebrating the next installment in the beloved franchise with a '90s-themed party complete with sub sangas, ice-cold beers and live-printed merch.

Space Jam: A New Legacy is the sequel to the 1996 Loony Tunes space-basketball classic. But instead of Michael Jordan bouncing around with Bugs, Lola, Daffy and the gang, this time around they're passing the ball to LeBron James. He and his son Dom must escape digital space by leading the Loony Tunes team to a basketball victory over a team of rogue robots.

The party begins at 7pm in the Lido Arcade with DJ Milo Eastwood spinning records, Saul's Sandwiches serving up Space Jam-themed subs and custom screen-printed merch by streetwear brand 1st Product. Plus, Kaiju is cracking open tinnies, and homewares and furniture pop-up Didi and Dora is staying open till late.

At 9pm, head upstairs and sink into the cinema seats as Space Jam: A New Legacy plays on Lido's big screen.

Tickets are $30 and include party access and seats for the screening.

From 7pm onwards.
