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 Blues Brothers John Landis • 1980

Fri 23 Jan /9pm

At 214 Swan Street Richmond.
Doors open 8pm, film starts 9pm.

The Blues Brothers. In Richmond. On a Friday at The Val. Yes, it's happening. No, we can't release more tickets when we sell out.

Need more words? Jake. Elwood. Mission From God. Neo-Nazis. Rawhide. The Car Chase. Put 'em all together and you have the quintessential cult film of the 80s – this is as revered as they come, and for good reason.

Starring Dan Ackroyd, John Belushi, James Brown, Cab Calloway, Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles, John Candy, Carrie Fisher, Steve Lawrence, Twiggy, Paul Reubens, Frank Oz and Steven Spielberg.

Presented in 2k and 5.1 HD surround. Thanks to our Klipsch sound system, we promise to get very loud and happy. There's even room for a little dancin'.

Weekend At Bernie's Ted Kotcheff • 1989

Sat 24 Jan /9pm

At 214 Swan Street Richmond. Doors open 8pm, film starts at 9pm.

What's more odd? That Ted Kotcheff, the director of Wake In Fright (1971), was also responsible for Weekend At Bernie's? Or that a movie about a corpse being passed off as alive still manages to be as funny as you remember? New York in the summertime. The Hamptons of the bourgeois 80s. Necrophilia 'jokes' you never quite understood as a kid. Inept mafia henchmen. They're all there. Grab some hungover/comatose mates, slip on the sunnies and come see us for guaranteed, inappropriate laughter.

Starring Andrew McCarthy, Jonathan Silverman, Terry Kiser, Catherine Mary Stewart and Ted Kotcheff himself.

Presented in 2k and 5.1 HD surround.

Picnic At Hanging Rock Peter Weir • 1975

Sun 25 Jan /9pm

At 214 Swan Street Richmond.
Doors open 8pm, film starts 9pm.

One of the greatest Australian films ever made. Neglected for too long, we've taken matters into our own hands for this beautifully strange film about students who go missing at Hanging Rock. To say more is to rob you of a rare trip into the Golden Age of Australian cinema. Just come already.

Starring Anne-Louise Lambert, Jacki Weaver, John Jarratt, Rachel Roberts, Helen Morse and Vivean Gray.

Presented in 2k and 5.1 HD surround.

Spring Breakers Harmony Korine • 2012

Thu 29 Jan /9pm

At 214 Swan Street Richmond.
Doors open 8pm, film starts 9pm.

The best film of 2012 wasn't Argo. Or The Avengers. Or Zero Dark Thirty. Not by a whisker. It was (and remains) Harmony Korine's riff on The Great American Dream™, Spring Breakers. If beauty is indeed in the eye of the beholder, this is one magnificent specimen.

Preconceptions? You will have many. Best be leaving them at the door and be at one with the force that is Spring Break, bitches.

Starring James Franco, Vanessa Hudgens, Selena Gomez, Ashley Benson, Rachel Korine and Gucci Mane.

Presented in 2k and 5.1 HD surround.

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.
