Dendy Newtown’s Cult Classics season will return again in June with a new line-up showcasing 80’s and 90’s favourites across a range of genres featuring the best of comedy, musicals and horror.

2014 marks the 20th anniversary of the cinematic release of The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert. An instant Aussie classic, the film details the journey of drag-queens Mitzi (Hugo Weaving), Felicia (Guy Pearce) and Bernadette (Terence Stamp) across the outback to an Alice Springs resort to perform their fabulous cabaret show. Stephan Elliot’s hugely upbeat, hilariously camp, cult classic features an iconic soundtrack as well as Lizzy Gardiner and Tim Chappel’s colourful Oscar-winning costumes.

Dendy Newtown will be celebrating the 20th anniversary of Priscilla on August 18th by hosting an in-cinema Priscilla Party before the film with performances, music, colour and dance in tribute to the much loved Aussie classic.

One of the late Harold Ramis’ most enduringly popular and funny films, Groundhog Day (1993), will also screen as part of the season on July 7th. Starring Bill Murray as Phil Connors, the TV weatherman is caught on a time loop in his most hated day of the year: Groundhog Day.

The Cult Classics line up also includes a further selection of classic comedies including Kevin Smith’s vision of retail-hell in Clerks (1994) and Mel Brooks’ sci-fi farce Spaceballs (1987).

Dendy Newtown’s Cult Classics will screen on Mondays at Newtown with sessions at 10am and 6.30pm. All tickets will be $12 or just $10 for Club Dendy members with all sessions also available in the comfort of the Dendy Lounge. Tickets are on sale now.
