the movie reel is closing

Sad times in Westgarth Village – The Movie Reel will be closing in April. This treasure trove of film has been open since 1988, and has done sterling work to satisfy my arthouse, cult and kung fu cravings. Thanks Robert, Ben and all the other staff – you are awesome, and will definitely be missed! Look out for their huge DVD sale, which starts on March 17.

living the dream

A sunny Saturday with one of my favorite people, both of us in tiki-fabulous attire. Buying Richie Fahey’s Waikiki Wahine at The Outre Gallery sale (in black faux bamboo frame, obviously), a new panama at Smart Alec, a wander through the Victorian Hot Rod Show, and gelato at Il Melograno. So happy…

Cinerarium is moving from 303 – and Northcote! 2015 screenings will be happening The Wilde Bar in Fitzroy. The 86 tram stops right out the front, so it’s still easy to get to. To attend screenings this year you need to have a membership, which can be yours for just $15. Get on it!
