Getting cult films out of the basement and on the big screen
Cult films are coming back to the big screen thanks to Valhalla Social Cinema. Old and neglected classics, as well as some newer films deserving of cult status, are now being screened regularly at this drop in cinema space at Electron Workshop in North Melbourne.

Valhalla Social Cinema is not only getting cult movies out of the basement and back on the big screen where they belong; it also hosts film festivals, drive-ins, a pop-up cinema and an epic 24-hour sci-fi marathon.

A community cinema, those behind it are motivated by the desire to recreate the movie experiences of their youth, rather than making a profit. Run solely by a man, his wife and a handful of volunteers on a shoestring budget, it was born purely out of a passion and love for cinema.

Fully equipped with the classic movie staples popcorn and choc-tops, and deckchairs, and with the ability to be indoors or outdoors depending on the weather, Valhalla Social Cinema is perfect for sitting back and catching up on any cult classic you somehow seem to have missed over the years or re-watching an old favourite,be it winter or summer, rain or shine.
