Classic Films Light up Lumen Room Each Month

The first rule of sword club is you don't talk about sword club...because you're in a silent film.

Have you ever wanted to travel back in time? Well now you can, cinema style! The Lumen Room is opening its doors again this year for Roaring Twenties Cinema. The first event is kicking off this Friday the 20th of January.

Roaring Twenties Cinema takes audiences back to the times of silent era, black and white film. Sometimes films were colourised - a process that involved hand-painting individual frames of a movie shot in black and white. Just like the silent movie screenings of the old days, there is a musician who plays a stirring soundtrack along with the shows. Any dialogue appears as words on screen. Otherwise the stories are told with silent actors' amazing facial expressions.

Each evening of Roaring Twenties Cinema delights audiences with a two-hour long program that usually consists of a short film or two followed by a feature.

These poor punters missed out on buying tickets. So silently sad.

The Lumen Room is situated at Metro Arts, 109 Edward St Brisbane. It's really easy to get there via public transport and there's also heaps of parking on street and off street nearby.

Moon cops an eyeful in a film that surprisingly isn't anything to do with how much it hurts to get mascara in your eye.

Tickets to see Roaring Twenties Cinema are only $15 per person plus booking fee and because the movies are from a simpler, more innocent time, they're fine for viewing for all ages.

You can stay up to date with what's showing at each of the monthly screenings via the Facebook page. Bookings can be made at Sticky Tickets or by calling Joel on 0409 620 670.
