Film producer Gus Berger, who was the brains behind the sadly short-lived George Revival Cinema in St Kilda, has lovingly renovated an Art Nouveau garage and turned it into a 57-seat cinema on High Street in Thornbury.
The cinema shows current releases, classic films, documentaries and cult hits most days of the week, and it is also available to book out for private functions. The space has no kitchen of its own but has teamed up with local favourite Umberto’s to offer small and shared Italian plates, along with the usual cinema fare of popcorn and choc tops.
Craft beer is available from 3 Ravens, Stomping Ground, Hawkers and Two Birds Brewing, and you can also get Four Pillars gin and coffee from East Brunswick-based Padre Coffee.
Full-priced tickets are $18.50, and there are special screenings for parents and babies.
