Based at Electron Workshop's drop in cinema space, Valhalla Social Cinema specialises in cult films, quality new releases and lost treasures. Now screening fortnightly in North Melbourne.


Battle Royale Kinji Fukasaku / 2000

Fri 03 Oct

$13. Online registration advised. Limited ticket availability at door (while they last). SELLING FAST

Where is it?
At 31 Arden Street North Melbourne. Doors open 7pm, film starts at 8pm.

Based on a book. Well before Hunger Games. A major influence on Tarantino's Kill Bill (2003). Death Race 2000, Turkey Shoot, The Running Man... it's a story told many times: high-school students thrown into a deadly game of survival where it's kill or be killed. A sole remaining survivor wins the game.

Battle Royale is the grand-daddy of 'survival as reality TV show' masterpieces directed by Kinji Fukasaku and astonishingly, was banned outright in several countries on release. Uncompromising, action-packed and duplicitous... see the film that inspired so many others.

Presented in 2K and HD audio. SUBTITLED.

What is a Valhalla screening like? Cosy. Familiar. A bit experimental. Join us and rediscover lost cinema with a big screen, surround sound, deck chairs and a bar serving old-school cinema snacks. We also host the Melbourne cult institution that is the sci-fi movie marathon. Ain't nobody like us.
