The greatest movies ever made
The Classic Cinema in Elsternwick is a distinguished movie-house with a long history. Screening its first 'talking pictures' in 1915, it's now Victoria's longest continuously-operating cinema. Its six theatres range in size from 46 to 270 seats, with all films digitally projected.

The Classic Elsternwick

This summer, the Classic adds to the latest blockbusters by branching into repertory-style movie presentations with a program of Classics and Cult movies.

Classics will be screened as Saturday matinees and will include all-time favourites, the Marx Brothers' comedy Night at the Opera, dramas Rebel Without a Cause, Gone With the Wind, Sunset Boulevard, Breakfast at Tiffany's and plenty more, screening Saturdays at 12 midday.

Perennial favourites, musicals Meet Me in St Louis and Singin' in the Rain - full of colour and gorgeous choreography - are well worth catching on the big screen, the way they were meant to be viewed.

The full program (from 31 January to 21 March) is available here.

The Cult line-up includes 2001: A Space Odyssey, Monty Python's Life of Brian and Mad Max. Screenings on Mondays at 9pm begin 2 February, continuing until 23 March.

Tickets are available online or at the box office; standard ticket prices apply.

Most places screening old and new classics like this take place outdoors in Melbourne. Here's a nice, dry, insect-free alternative.

And with the forthcoming demise of The Astor Theatre as this town's greatest repertory cinema, this programming will be extra special.

Here's your chance to enjoy sixteen of the best-loved films of all time. Popcorn optional.
