Blasts from the past thrill cinema-goers
The modern love affair with all things 'vintage' shows no signs of abating.

From fashion and furniture to watches and weddings and even books, bikes and baby names, what's old is new, and cool, again.

Now a sprinkling of this same vintage fairy dust is coming to the silver screen, with Palace Cinemas' Vintage Centro program set to explore the glamour of bygone eras.

On Sunday afternoons at Palace Centro Cinemas in James Street, from September 8 until the last Sunday before Christmas, this retro film festival will showcase an eclectic selection of cult classics.

Cinema-goers are invited to "slip back in time", starting with a special launch screening of the 50th anniversary remastering of the classic Cleopatra.

Also screening in subsequent months will be Hitchcock classics The Birds (1963) and Psycho (1960) and Stanley Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange (1971).

More of a romantic? The cinema epic Gone With The Wind (1939) is also set to screen. Others on the program include 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), An Affair To Remember (1957), Roman Holiday (1953), and Breakfast At Tiffany's (1961).

There's even the original version of The Great Gatsby (1974), so no matter your genre preferences, there is sure to be something on the program to suit.

Palace Centro prides itself on providing discerning film-goers with a state-of-the-art, sophisticated cinema experience.

An additional bonus is the fact that the venue is fully licensed, which means you can sip on a fine wine or imported beer while watching your movie ... though, personally, I prefer the choc-topped ice-creams.

Vintage Centro film season competition is closed. Winners have been notified.
