Golden Age’s film program takes us deep into space

Golden Age Cinema & Bar is hosting a film program of an outer space kind next Wednesday 19th August, to be presented by astronaut Chris Hadfield who is currently in Australia on his tour A Spaceman’s View of the Planet. For the ‘Guest Presents Session’, Chris Hadfield has chosen the film Moon the directorial debut of Duncan Jones (David Bowie’s son). As a David Bowie fan Hadfield is definitely taking his accomplishments and opportunities for granted with this one.

Also showing to add to theme of the outer world, are movies inspired by the man himself, following his adventures orbiting the earth. For the 1977 price of $6 a ticket, Golden Age has a spaced out program including Steven Spielberg’s Close Encounters of the Third Kind. These tickets are only available on the day of screening on Tuesday 18th August, so get in early and take advantage of drinks and toasties at great prices. If you’re keen for Date Night double on Saturday 22nd August, the out of the world duo of E.T the Extra Terrestrial and Under the Skin will also be showing.

Golden Age also presents new release Ex Machina set for release on the 20th August. The technological thriller is the directorial debut of Alex Garland (author of The Beach) and stars Oscar Isaac (A Most Violent Year) and Domhnall Gleeson (Frank). Set in the not so distant future, the film shows the test between the first true artificial intelligence, Ava (played by Alicia Vikander) and a computer programmer. For a quick glimpse, watch the trailer below.
