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.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show Jim Sharman • 1975

Fri 27 Feb /8.45pm

At 214 Swan Street Richmond.
Doors open 8.15pm, film starts 8.45pm.

You ask. You get. An old favourite rides again in its spiritual home of Richmond. In the vein of starting some musical traditions up all over again – last month it was The Blues Brothers – we bring you The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Outside of making the millionth reference to "do the time warp again", there's not much more we can say about the experience of Rocky Horror. Maybe just make sure you don't miss out.

Starring Tim Curry, Richard O'Brien, Susan Sarandon, Barry Bostwick and the mutherflippin' Meat Loaf.

Special $13 pricing for the last Friday of every month!

From Dusk Till Dawn Robert Rodriguez • 1996

Sun 1 Mar /8.45pm

At 214 Swan Street Richmond.
Doors open 8.15pm, film starts 8.45pm.

Dear God. Where do we start. From Dusk Till Dawn is about the most fun you could ever have in a cinema as it criss-crosses genres in ways never matched before or since. It puts the insanity machine of Tarantino/Rodriguez into high gear before Death Proof and Planet Terror hit in 2007 and has George Clooney trying to bust out of his ER scrubs as he shoots for the stars in his first, leading Hollywood role. Also. Salma Hayek and snakes.

Starring Juliette Lewis, Salma Hayek, Harvey Keitel, George Clooney, Tom Savini, Cheech Marin and Quentin Tarantino.

Reservoir Dogs Quentin Tarantino • 1992

Thu 5 Mar /8.45pm

At 214 Swan Street Richmond.
Doors open 8.15pm, film starts 8.45pm.

The QT Pounder With Cheese begins! We start our Quentin Tarantino weekend retrospective with the blistering debut that is Reservoir Dogs, a film so perfectly aligned to our infatuation with cinema and homage to those that came before us, there was no way we couldn't revisit this before too long.

Starring Steve Buscemi, Harvey Keitel, Tim Roth, Chris Penn, Michael Madsen, Eddie Bunker and too many more to mention.

Pulp Fiction Quentin Tarantino • 1994

Fri 6 Mar /8.45pm

At 214 Swan Street Richmond.
Doors open 8.15pm, film starts 8.45pm.

QT's second album was (and remains) a groundbreaking work of art. Pulp Fiction is the film that took the world by the scruff of it's m*****f******g neck and conquered all comers. It marked Tarantino as a 90s wunderkind and inspired legions of aspiring filmmakers to embrace intertwining narratives, disjointed time jumps and complicated sub-plots – with mostly terrible results. Often copied, but never equalled, Pulp Fiction is the genuine article. If you've never seen it, you've no excuse. If you have... come see an old friend and how it's ass has aged like fine wine.

Starring John Travolta, Samuel L. Jackson, Uma Thurman, Ving Rhames, Bruce Willis, Harvey Keitel, Tim Roth, Christopher Walken, Amanda Plummer and about a million other people.

Jackie Brown Quentin Tarantino • 1997

Sat 7 Mar /8.45pm

At 214 Swan Street Richmond.
Doors open 8.15pm, film starts 8.45pm.

The movie that infamously starts to the tune of Bobby Womack's Across 110th Street, Jackie Brown has been somewhat forgotten in a career spanning more than 20 years. It's the one many have skipped over, and in doing so miss out on Tarantino's 'smallest', most personal yet uncompromising take on the blaxploitation genre of the 70s. These are just some of the reasons it holds a very special place in The Val's heart. Of all the QTs in our weekend retrospective, Jackie Brown is our pick as the most unmissable – It's Samuel L. Jackson's personal fave, too.

Starring Pam Grier, Samuel L. Jackson, Robert De Niro, Michael Keaton, Bridget Fonda, Robert Forster and Chris Tucker.

Kill Bill Vol. 1 Quentin Tarantino • 2003

Sun 8 Mar /8.45pm

At 214 Swan Street Richmond.
Doors open 8.15pm, film starts 8.45pm.

One the greatest revenge movies ever committed to celluloid. After seven long years between drinks, Tarantino's follow up to Jackie Brown was a real attempt at rewriting the rules on what a "QT movie" was: blending genre, film stocks and stealing a bit from here and there, Kill Bill Vol. 1 gave rise to Tarantino's detractors who claimed mimicry over originality. You'd best not do the same yourself. Incredible, beautifully choreographed, expertly written, unrelentingly bloody and possibly one of Tarantino's funniest movies.

Starring Uma Thurman, Daryl Hannah, Lucy Liu, Michael Madsen, David Carradine and Vivica Fox.

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.
