Enjoy open-air cinema on a balmy summer night

Situated in the historic grounds of the Abbotsford Convent, the Shadow Electric screens an eclectic mix of old, new, mainstream and arthouse cinema.

Coming up is the fascinating new doco All This Mayhem (Thu Jan 29), followed by rollicking music doco Pulp: A Film About Life, Death and Supermarkets (Fri Jan 30). Get yourself down there early for happy hour at the bar and settle down for a night of movie magic and tasty food trucks.
