Cult at the Capri

What better place to catch some cult than in the retro setting of the Capri? This year we have a range of doubles and cult classics to satisfy everyone's visual pleasures, from our favourite alien of the 80's to Marilyn madness and 90's action heroes for Father's Day to Hitchcock heaven.

So when the cold weather sets in, you can curl up in one of the love seats with a glass of vino, some Haigh’s chocolates and a tub of salty popcorn from the Candy Bar! 


Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (PG) + How to Marry a Millionaire (PG)

Sunday 20 August, 2:00pm

Marilyn was a modern day Cinderella. Born in poverty and cast off by her mentally unwell mother into a string of foster homes, it was this vulnerability combined with flashes of intelligence and wit that made this blonde bombshell so accessible and so loved by her audiences. 

These two fun romps provide some iconic Marilyn moments and established her star image as the 'dumb blonde'. She did have a desire to play serious roles, but was quote as saying 'Hollywood's a place where they'll pay you a $US1,000 for your kiss, and 50 cents for your soul'.

Terminator 2 (M) + Universal Soldier (MA15+) - Father's Day Double 

Sunday 3 September, 2:00pm

It's time for a little nostalgic nineties action for Father's Day this year. 

Terminator 2 rates as one of the greatest action films of all time, not just for the cutting edge special effects at the time, but a gripping story and stellar performances by Linda Hamilton and Arnie...well playing a robot is perfect for him!

And you can't have nineties action without Van Damme! We've got a nice link here with killer cyborgs featuring in another battle of good and evil.

The Exorcist (R18+) + The Shining (MA15+) - Halloween Double 

Sunday 29 October, 2:00pm

These two psychological horror films are regarded as the best ever made and have scared us senseless so make sure you bring a good friend who likes a squeal and you're not embarrased in front of. 

There'll be head spinning and door axing ahoy. 

An interesting link to the two films is that Stanley Kubrick reportedly turned down the role of Director for The Exorcist.

Psycho (M) + Rear Window (M) 

Sunday 12 November, 2:00pm

Hitchcock was the master of suspense and these two titles see him at his best and at the height of his popularity. Both stories are well known, but have you seen them on the big screen?

Often dubbed as B movies by the Hollywood establishment, Hitchcock proved the suits wrong again and again, because he understood better than any filmmaker at the time what audiences really want...to be shocked and frightened.

Geez, we really are a bunch of masochists.
