The Quad is thrilled to present its first-ever outdoor cinema! Set over three nights from the 21-23 May, we're bringing you some cult classics to kick-back under the stars and enjoy. The program will be presented with headsets delivering crisp and perfect sound in a truly immersive experience.
The program has been put together by highly regarded film critic and programmer, Peter Castaldi, and is designed to offer something for everyone; a selection of music and performance-oriented features on Friday night, family friendly classics on Saturday and a deeper dive into the world of arthouse and high end on Sunday.
“This program is designed to delight, entertain and shake the audience around a little. Each night is specifically tailored to suit different age groups and tastes, but also to appeal to all who might just want to drop in on any of them,” says Peter Castaldi.
“I’m especially thrilled that this Quad series is the perfect combination of picnic, gathering and great films under the stars - with the bonus of perfect sound heard through WiFi headsets!”
Friday is an epic Aussie double bill featuring One Perfect Day, taking you into the wild and dangerous world of clubbing, trance and dance, followed by Baz Luhrmann’s modern masterpiece Romeo + Juliet.
Saturday night could not get more family-friendly, warm and fuzzy! The original, and the best Storm Boy, remastered, will always be one of the most moving and captivating family movies to have ever been produced in Australia.
Sunday night is for all those who want to take a leap into the truly unusual. Cory McAbee’s The American Astronaut is a post punk cowboy rock’n roll sci-fi western rich in both reference and originality.
Bring the picnic blankets and hampers and head to The Quad for a great night of outdoor cinema in the heart of Lismore, 21- 23 May.
Prices: Adult $15, Conc $10. Double bill and group discounts available. Also available at door, but pre-purchase encouraged.
