Dendy Cult Classics

Cult Classics 2016 EPH

Its time to celebrate Mondays again with the return of the Cult Classics series at Dendy Canberra.

Each Monday in March through to May, at 10am and 6.30pm Dendy Canberra will be showing a selections of films which have inspired dedicated followings and are rarely able to be seen on the big screen.  This series has been going for a few years now and always bring a cineliterate crowd, a cracking atmosphere and the chance to see some classics films up where they belong.

Highlights for me this year are Pulp Fiction, Jaws, Goodfellas, Blade Runner and the opportunity to take my two girls to see The Princess Bride in its full glory.

The full program is listed below, tickets are only $12, so what better way to bring Mondays back.

My CIFF Casualty List

After a lot of pondering, my CIFF schedule is now locked in and can be seen in full here.  As with any schedule there are inevitably casualties due to screening clashes and as I am quickly learning you just can’t see everything.

Therefore I have had to regretfully say farewell to :-

The Angels’s Share – I could only make the opening night screening which was $50 which seems a bit steep for a film that I can rent from iTunes for a tenth of the price

Save Yer Legs – Closing night screening and again priced at $50, decided to take the cheaper option and see Paris-Manhattan instead.

Smashed – Clashed with Room 237 which I was very keen to see.  This was a tough call.  Still not convinced I have got it right.

The Shining – Clashed with Like Someone In Love and whilst it would have been great to see The Shining on the big screen, especially directly after Room 237, I had to prioritize seeing new films over rewatches.

There is also a three-day block in the middle of the festival that I am missing due to a wedding of a good friend which knocks out a whole range of films, but the biggest being Monsieur Lazhar; probably my biggest casualty of all.
