from film-go­ers and how cer­tain movies take peo­ple back to when they first en­joyed the movie.

The first open­ing night last year was mod­ern classic The Big Le­bowski— timed for com­ple­tion of the Vil­lage Cin­ema revamp.

Mel says the lo­ca­tion iswarm and cosy for win­ter nights and they of­ten have preen­ter­tain­ment, held in­sid­e­when it is raining. The night out in­cludes street food, mu­sic, a pop-up bar, candy and some­times even a live band.

Mel has in­tro­duced screen­ing short in­de­pen­dent films by lo­cal film­mak­ers.

“There’s a lot of great ta­lent out there and th­ese movies need to be seen.” She’d like to hear from any potential film­mak­ers.

Mel en­cour­ages mem­ber­ship, a $35 one-off fee. Mem­bers get 20 per cent off movie tick­ets, first access to on­line ticket sales, com­pe­ti­tions, free pop­corn and candy bar dis­counts, news­let­ters and a goodie bag.

Melanie Mills runs the Cult Cin­ema Club at the re­vamped Historic Vil­lage Cin­ema.
