The Luna Outdoor Cinema in Leederville is, once again, presenting Perth filmgoers with some intense movie experiences. This week, Sam Mendes’ epic 1917 creates a vision of the First World War that is a technical and historical marvel and THE LODGE is an effectively scary horror that takes you to places you will not expect. It’s time to get your people together and have an entertaining and thrilling evening watching movies and enjoying food and drink under the stars.
1917 (8.00 PM, TUE 18 – WED 19 FEBRUARY)
At the height of the First World War, two young British soldiers, Schofield (Captain Fantastic’s George MacKay) and Blake (Game of Thrones’ Dean-Charles Chapman) are given a seemingly impossible mission. In a race against time, they must cross enemy territory and deliver a message that will stop a deadly attack on hundreds of soldiers—Blake’s brother among them. Over here at Accessreel, we rate the film highly.
THE LODGE (8.00 PM, THU 20 – SUN 23 FEBRUARY)
A snowstorm has trapped Grace (Riley Keogh) in an isolated alpine lodge with her boyfriend Richard’s (Richard Armitage) two kids. The atmosphere is chilly, as Aidan and Mia refuse to replace their beloved mother Laura (Alicia Silverstone). More unnerving for Grace, the sole survivor of an evangelical cult, is the Catholic paraphernalia filling the lodge. As temperatures drop and paranoia grows, is she right to suspect the children of manipulating her? Are malevolent spirits haunting the lodge? Or perhaps the never-exorcised demons of Grace’s childhood are being unleashed, to harrowing effect… With masterly command of tension, The Lodge will keep you guessing until its devastating finale.
