The Fitzroy Outdoor Cinema aims to open up a little crack in the invisible wall that separates the rest of Fitzroy from the Atherton Gardens public housing estate. In 2010 the inaugural cinema was a great success, with over 350 Fitzroy residents and guests sharing an evening of entertainment under the stars. It returns in 2011, and Fitzroy’s Atherton oval will again be illuminated by film, music, fashion and food on Saturday 26 February from 6pm.
The evening will start with a performance from the Many Moons Choir, a group of seniors who have been learning English and singing together for ten years now. The Social Studio’s dynamic designs will take over with a jaw-dropping fashion parade featuring local models and the designs of the talented crew at Social Studio.
Massive Hip Hop Choir will perform their crowd thrilling collection of tunes and moves before dusk falls, when locally made short films featuring refugee and migrant young people will precede the exuberant feature Bran Nue Day. Bring a blanket, a pillow and a picnic, or buy your food and drink from one of the food stalls on the night.
