Free classics on the big screen
[ADVERT]Do you love seeing movies for free?
Do you feel as though there's nothing quite like watching old flicks on the big screen?
Does your film knowledge have a gaping hole where the classics should be?
If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you should add AFTRS' new initiative, REEL Sundays, to your diary. From September 15, classic films will screen for free in AFTRS' Theatre One, every Sunday at 4pm.
Marilyn Monroe, Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis in Some Like It Hot.
The AFTRS crew has dug deep into the dusty depths of the National Film and Sound Archive to retrieve Some Like It Hot (screeing September 15) and Blow-Up Michelangelo Antonioni (September 29).
Other selections were closer to the top of the pile, such as Pulp Fiction (October 13) and two Martin Scorsese masterpieces - Cape Fear (October 6) and Goodfellas (November 24).
Then there'll be a bunch of '70s must-sees, including Badlands (September 22), The Conversation (October 20) and Nashville (October 27). The rest of the programme is available on the AFTRS site.
Uma Thurman in Pulp Fiction.
Booking is not necessary - seats will be allocated on a first-to-turn-up basis.
