Winter Cult Classics at Dendy Newtown


The highly anticipated winter Cult Classics returns to Dendy Newtown with a line-up that includes some of the most popular comedies, musicals and horror films from the ’80s and ’90s.

Mel Brooks’ hilarious Spaceballs (1987) boasts a stellar cast and parodies sci-fi franchises including the Star Wars trilogy. Bill Murray stars in box office hit Groundhog Day (1993) as a weatherman who finds himself living his most hated day over and over again.

Filmed in black and white, laugh-out-loud Clerks (1994) centres on one day in the lives of two store clerks.

Alternatively, audiences can be terrorised by Wes Craven’s Nightmare On Elm Street (1984) which tells of a child murderer who stalks children in their dreams.

The Adventures Of Priscilla: Queen Of The Desert (1994) is one of Australia’s most successful movies and a 20th anniversary Priscilla party will be hosted prior to the screening.

Dendy Newtown’s Cult Classics season allows a new generation of film-goers to experience golden favourites on the big screen. (MM)
