The Sound Of Music

The Sound Of Music [G]

At last, many people's sentimental all time favourite, back on the Astor SuperScreen this time in a new 4K re-mastered edition - the digital world's version of 70mm. The sweeping spectacle of the opening number alone is worth the wait. Rodgers & Hammerstein musical is based on the life of the Von Trapp family under threat in war-shrouded Austria. Winner of five Oscars. Songs include "Do Re Mi", "My Favourite Things". Scripted by Ernest (North By Northwest) Lehman.

The Lion King

The Lion King [G]

Limited reissue of this timeless much loved animated classic. No further screenings possible.

A Fistful of Dollars

A Fistful of Dollars [MA15+]

A gunfighter becomes involved in a feud between two families in this remake of Kurosowa's classic, 'Yojimbo'. The first of the Spaghetti Western trilogy that made director Leone, Eastwood and music composer Morricone famous. The first in our Leone retrospective.

Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb

Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb [PG]

Peter Sellers stars in the most hilarious and entertaining of Kubrick's political comedies. An insane general attempts to launch a nuclear holocaust that leads to farcical arguments between generals and politicians - in The War Room, no less. And although we don't have a War Room, we do have Melbourne's largest cinema auditorium and we have an insane plan to present this film, fully restored not only in 4K but through our impressive 4K state of the art projector.

Wake in Fright

Wake in Fright [M15+]

Brutal, uncompromising and stunning, the story of a young teacher who arrives in a rough outback mining town planning to stay overnight before catching the plane to Sydney. He then plunges headlong into utter destruction. There is no Australian film quite like this. Nominated for the Golden Palm at the Cannes Film Festival in 1971 and still as raw and fresh today as it was then, rediscover this lost cinematic masterpiece.

Taxi Driver

Taxi Driver [R18+]

Robert de Niro and Jodie Foster star in Martin Scorsese's disturbing drama about the degradation of a man in the twilight of insanity. Scorcese's portrait of urban decay and life on the street, according to our anti-hero De Niro, is uniquely dark and intriguing. Written by Paul Schrader. We are proud to present this landmark film projected in our new state-of-the-art 4K digital projection system.
