Moving on… Underground Melbourne looking for new editor/blogger

November 5, 2013

Due to a relocation the editor of this blog is no longer able to stay in touch with the best new nearly-secret gems to be found in Melbourne.

 

We are seeking a new editor/overlord/main blogger to run this site.  We will not, however, hand the site over to a company looking to promote their own shop or shops – this blog must remain independent.  We’re looking for someone who is interested in food, culture, ideas, film, books, art, fashion… a span that reflects Melbourne’s exciting culture.

If you are interested in becoming the new editor or main contributor to this much-visited blog, please comment as a reply to this post with your details (website etc) or link to your current blog.

Thanks and looking forward to bringing some new life to this blog which we’ve loved to curate and bring Melbourne’s secrets to you.

More cult cinema = the Westgarth takes up the baton with Cult Vault

April 24, 2011

Shadows Cinema, the Astor, ACMI and the Rooftop Cinema have all flown the flag of cult films, and continue to, for a while. Good news is that the Westgarth, that ever charming delight of old-school cinema, has joined the throng, being a perfect complement to Movie Reel for the home viewer.

Their Cult Vault series screens for $10 a ticket, and the upcoming May theme seems to be chock full of schlock for horror fans. Look at their upcoming films here:
