This Week At The Luna Outdoor (14-20 Jan)
Perth-dwellers, the summer season is heating up and there is no better time to spend your evenings watching excellent movies in the coolness of Luna Outdoor Cinema in Leederville. Screenings commence at 8:15 PM. Here are this week’s films .


A curmudgeonly instructor (Paul Giamatti) at a New England prep school is forced to remain on campus during Christmas break to babysit the handful of students with nowhere to go. Eventually, he forms an unlikely bond with one of them — a damaged, brainy troublemaker newcomer Dominic Sessa — and with the school’s head cook, who has just lost a son in Vietnam (Da’Vine Joy Randolph.) Beautifully bittersweet, The Holdovers marks a satisfying return to form for director Alexander Payne (SidewaysThe Descendants.)



From filmmaker Yorgos Lanthimos and producer Emma Stone comes the incredible tale and fantastical evolution of Bella Baxter (Stone), a young woman brought back to life by the brilliant and unorthodox scientist  Dr. Godwin Baxter ( Willem Dafoe). Under Baxter’s protection, Bella is eager to learn.  Hungry for the worldliness she is lacking, Bella runs off with Duncan Wedderburn (Mark Ruffalo), a slick and debauched lawyer, on a whirlwind adventure across the continents. Free from the prejudices of her times, Bella grows steadfast in her purpose to stand for equality and liberation.



When teenage Priscilla Beaulieu meets Elvis Presley at a party, the man who is already a meteoric rock-and-roll superstar becomes someone entirely unexpected in private moments: a thrilling crush, an ally in loneliness, a vulnerable best friend. Through Priscilla’s eyes, Sofia Coppola tells the unseen side of a great American myth in Elvis and Priscilla’s long courtship and turbulent marriage, from a German army base to his dream-world estate at Graceland, in this deeply felt and ravishingly detailed portrait of love, fantasy, and fame.

With quiet observations and volatile emotions, the biopic Priscilla compellingly shows the doomed relationship of Elvis and Priscilla Presley. With Cailee Spaeny‘s performance in the title role leading the way, Priscilla sees Sofia Coppola taking a tender yet clear-eyed look at the often toxic blend created by mixing first love and fame.
