You Shall Not Pass (Without a Ticket)
If you feel more at home in Middle Earth or the Thunderdome and simply love everything to do with the world of heroic deeds, epic journeys and sacred stories, then prepare to be amazed and entertained as some of the best stories ever told come to The Gallery of Modern Arts Cinema for its Myths and Legends Series.

The program includes 54 films in total which will be shown at various times, until 8 March 2015 - so there is plenty of time to grab the popcorn, dig out your elf ears and settle in to be transported to wonderful new worlds.

From cinematic blockbusters such as Aliens, Terminator, Indiana Jones, Lord of The Rings and Mad Max to epic battles of classical mythology including Jason and the Argonauts and the Fisher King, plus stories and sacred tales from around the world including Atanarjuat: The Fast Runner and Ten Canoes, also tales of the questing hero such as The Adventures of Robin Hood and even those heroic journeys found in everyday life in An Officer and a Gentleman.

There really is something for everyone - from the comedy of Monty Python, the romance of Pretty Woman and Casablanca and the jaw-dropping historical epics such as The Ten Commandments and Ben-Hur - all genres are covered. There is even ET for the kids.

Each film has just one or two specific slots - due to the amount of films to screen - so make sure you check times early so you don't miss your favourite.

This cinema series looks at the powerful relationships between classic folklore and modern cinematic storytelling, including biopics and retellings of classic tales, as well as modern takes and unexpected genres, such as film noir, science fiction, adventure, drama, romance, comedy and the western.

With films from the 1920's to modern day, you cannot deny each of them had a huge impact on the cinematic world, and created some classics that are still as breathtaking today as they always were.

Whether a movie geek or not, you are sure to find a film that you love, and even if you have seen them over and over on DVD there is nothing quite like seeing again at the cinema. Reconnect with an old classic, or watch for the 20th time a contemporary favourite.

See one, or see a few - individual adult tickets are $9, or a five film pass is just $36. Going to the cinema is a feeling you cannot really recreate anywhere else, and seeing a favourite film on the big screen is just even better.

Whether you head to the Gallery of Modern Art by yourself or with some mates - I know one thing, I'll be back.
