The Luna Outdoor is officially open for the Perth summer season. The program is packed with gems which will improve your street credibility and reputation in The Zeitgeist.
Music fans can lend their ears and eyes to some fine sonic documentaries such as Muscle Shoals, about the Alabama recording studios that produced hit records that shaped the history of popular music; Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer about the feminist punk band and art collective that scared President Putin and Made of Stone Shane Meadows’ fan film covering the 2012 reunion and tour of The Stone Roses.
A-listers Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill and Matthew McConaughey are in Martin Scorsese’s Wolf of Wall Street. In addition you can experience the likes of Bruce Dern in Nebraska; Spike Jonze’s Her with Joaquin Phoenix, Amy Adams and Scarlet Johansson, the wonderfully engaging In Bob We Trust, “one of the best Australian films of any kind in years” about outspoken Melbourne Priest Father Bob Maguire.
But wait, there’s more…the crime drama American Hustle directed by David O. Russell with Christian Bale, Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Adams; Ben Stiller’s Secret Life of Walter Mitty and cult sensation The Room returns hosted by the avuncular Tristan Fidler.
You’ll want to keep up with the ever-changing lazy susan of filmic delights and for that, you need the Luna Outdoor calendar in glorious pdf.
It’s going to be one helluva summer…
