Hitchcock Winter Matinees at Golden Age Cinema & Bar
Throughout July and August, Golden Age Cinema & Bar is celebrating the master of suspense by screening some of his best work. Starting this weekend with one of Hitchcock's most-loved pictures, Shadow of a Doubt, the matinees are a must for film fanatics. The movie starts at 3pm.
Movie Club: Celebrating Sydney Filmakers
This month the Museum of Sydney’s Movie Club keeps things local by showcasing the best Sydney-based documentary filmmakers. On Sunday, catch 88, a documentary that covers a key moment in recent Australian history: the March for Justice, Freedom and Hope that took place on the Bicentennial. Over 30,000 Aborigines marched to remind Australia of its black history. Screening at 11am, the film has interviews with key players of the time and will be followed with a Q&A with the filmmakers.
Scandinavian Film Festival
It’s the final weekend of the festival and it’s finishing on a high. As well as showing several of the most-loved films from the event, in both the Leichardt and Paddington Palace cinemas, you can catch Ingrid Bergman: In Her Own Words, an intimate documentary about the beloved and talented Swedish actresses.
Premiering at the Sydney Film Festival, this movie shines a light on attitudes to drinking in Australia. Writer and director, Brendan Cowell, drew from his own experience when he decided to lay off the booze for a year. The film follows a Sydneysider who goes cold turkey and the reactions of his friends, family and colleagues. It’s funny, poignant and perhaps, for a lot of Australians, uncomfortably familiar.
007 Marathon at the Hayden Orpheum
Bond fans, this one’s for you. In anticipation of the return of everyone’s favourite spy later this year in Spectre, the Hayden Orpheum is holding a series of movie marathons. This Sunday from 1pm, it’s showing three of the best Bond flicks, The Living Daylights, Golden Eye and Skyfall. Load up on snacks because you’re in for a few hours of action.
