ABBOTSFORD CONVENT OPEN AIR CINEMA

The venue will open at 3pm, offering a recovery session with DJs, ping-pong, hairs of the dog and the Taco Truck’s culinary stylings to ensure you’re feeling shipshape before the night’s screening. And of course, no pop-up cinema program would be complete without a screening of ’80s cult smash Heathers , a murderous look at high school cliques starring everyone’s favourite sticky-fingered waif Winona Ryder. Think turn of the 20 th century pebble-dash walls lit with subtle projections, an amply stocked bar housed in the oldest building on the site a rustic former industrial school and faint calls of the wild drifting up from the nearby Yarra Trail. Rayner also recommends Ten Canoes , and rightly so. The program also features recent hits like Woody Allen’s return to form, Midnight In Paris , starring Owen Wilson as a jaded screenwriter who mourns the golden days of yore; Attack The Block , a tongue-in-cheek sci-fi romp from the producers of Shaun Of The Dead , and We Need To Talk About Kevin , the adaptation of Lionel Shriver’s bestselling novel, in which Tilda Swinton plays the tortured mother of a particularly malign progeny. Bartenders will be serving up an array of summer cocktails, as well as a selection of wine, beer and cider. For tickets, the full program and further information, visit shadowelectric.

The main challenges have arisen from Rayner’s ambition to create an open-air cinema that measures up to its indoor counterparts. The Shadow Electric is offering an eclectic mix of current buzz films and old favourites. Curated by Mikey Leonard, who runs short film night Beg, Scream And Shout at various bars across town, these cinematic entrees should prove a big drawcard.

Centring upon a taciturn stuntman who moonlights as a getaway driver, Drive features a healthy dose of self-reflexivity and ’80s noir nostalgia. This year’s new kid on the block, the Shadow Electric, is no exception. He has imported a custom-built screen from the United States, as well as employing what he claims is the “highest quality digital projection known to man” and digital surround sound. But it is Kubrik’s The Shining that Rayner would most like to see screened at the venue – hopefully something to look forward to in the future.
