Great films, a great idea

Bay News - - Front Page - FRONT COVER: Melanie Mills at the Vil­lage Cin­ema.

I re­mem­ber watch­ing The Big Le­bowski nearly 20 years ago.

It blew my mind. Fi­nally, I was able to flexmy film ma­jor muscle and talk cin­e­matic ge­nius. I just love it when movies cross over to cult cin­ema sta­tus.

The Big Le­bowski was the very first movie of Cult Cin­ema Club— our very own club for film buffs, which is now into its third sea­son. In themix this time around is crazy hor­ror zom­bie movie Dawn of the Dead, and poignant classic Casablanca re­cently screened.

The club is for se­ri­ous film fans. I love the idea be­hind this affordable night’s entertainment. Or­gan­iser Me­lanieMills wanted the club to be a com­plete night out for adults in­clud­ing live mu­sic on big nights, in­de­pen­dent short movies, a bar and candy bar, so­cial­is­ing and of course her mix of cult cin­ema and doc­u­men­taries. The warm and cosy Vil­lage Cin­ema is also a hid­den gem at the Historic Vil­lage . . . per­fect for win­ter nights.

An­other cool event West­ern Bay of Plenty has to of­fer.
