Based in Richmond for the summer months of 2015, The Val specialises in cult films, unseen new releases and lost treasures. Screening Thursday to Sunday, every week, at Swan Street Chamber Of Commerce.

Stand By Me Rob Reiner • 1986

Sat 31 Jan /9pm

At rear of 214 Swan Street Richmond.
Doors open 8.30pm, film starts 9pm.

Rob Reiner's contribution to the movie-going experience of nearly every 80s kid graces our cinema in all its remastered glory. After so many years, Stand By Me is a sight to behold and reminds, sometimes heartbreakingly, of a time when River Phoenix and Corey Feldman were precocious up-and-comers with talent to burn.

Beautifully shot, written and performed, it truly is one of the perfect 80s films.

Starring Wil Wheaton, River Phoenix, Corey Feldman, Jerry O'Connell, Kiefer Sutherland, John Cusack and Richard Dreyfuss.

Presented in 2K and HD 5.1 surround.

Mad Max 3 George Miller • 1985

Sun 1 Feb /9pm

At rear of 214 Swan Street Richmond.
Doors open 8.30pm, film starts 9pm.

Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome marks the third and most blockbuster-y entry in the revered Mad Max trilogy created by the George Miller of yesteryear. As relentless as its predecessors, Mad Max 3 is the sprawling, no-holds barred fantastical vision of the future Miller was finally able to put on screen with a budget that would have funded countless Road Warriors. That it remains so thoroughly entertaining and exhilarating, two decades on, is no mean feat. If anything, it serves as a reminder of how far Australian blockbuster film-making has sunk since. They just don't make 'em like they used to.

Starring Mel Gibson, Tina Turner, Frank Thring, Bruce Spence and Angry Anderson.

Presented in 2K and HD 5.1 surround. This thing kicks.

What is a screening at The Val like? Cosy, a little familiar and slightly experimental. Rediscover lost cinema on a big screen, in vintage cinema seats eating an ice-cream sandwich in air-conditioned comfort. Ain't nobody like us.
