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.

Coming Up

Sci-Fi Marathon 14 Hours / 6 Sep 2014

14 Hrs
Sat 6 Sep
2014

Tickets are $56. Online registration only.

Where is it?
The September sci-fi marathon will be held at our favourite venue, Electron Workshop. Brighter, louder and better than ever. Address is 31 Arden Street, North Melbourne. See it on Google Maps

The sci-fi marathon gets corporation-y and corporeal – even slightly icky – as it gathers four decades of prophetic visions whilst abusing technology for the betterment of mankind. Cashed-up suits in power are one thing, but if we've learned anything in our travels, it's the body that is the most treacherous bastard of all. What's more evil? The wool over one's eyes or the one under the skin?

The candy bar opens 10am (serving popcorn, choc tops, assorted snacks and drinks) and the first film starts at 10.30am. Heated comfort and canvas deck chairs are provided for the entirety of the marathon, with bean bags also available and on a first come, first served basis. We recommend bringing a pillow or two for extra comfort. There are also two major intermissions: a 40 minute lunch break and 1 hour dinner break. Please note: this is a non-alcohol event.

Tickets are $56 and now ON SALE.

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.

Bottle Rocket Wes Anderson/1996

8pm
Fri 19 Sep
2014

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

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

PRESENTED IN 2K

Bottle Rocket (1996) is Wes Anderson's quiet indie debut that went mostly unnoticed in 1996 and remained somewhat forgotten since. Naturally, it's a personal crusade of ours to sow the seed of its cultdom. It's also the first film to kick off our Weekend Of Wes.

An eminently re-watchable and quotable comedy heist film, it's time well spent (re)acquainting yourself with the infinite charm of Dignan, Mr Henry, Inez and Futureman.

Almost starring Bill Murray but definitely starring Owen Wilson, Luke Wilson and James Caan.

Rushmore Wes Anderson/1998

6.30pm
Sat 20 Sep
2014

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

Where is it?
At 31 Arden Street North Melbourne. Doors open 5.30pm, film starts at 6.30pm.

PRESENTED IN 2K

Rushmore (1998) paints a picture of a filmmaker on the rise and kicks the Weekend Of Wes into gear with a slightly larger budget, access to a bigger cast and a new penchant for oddities. It's the funnier, steadier film that cemented Wes as a force to be reckoned with and re-ignited Bill Murray's career as an indie darling.

Absolutely starring Bill Murray, Jason Schwartzman, Olivia Williams, Brian Cox and Luke Wilson.
