John Travolta in 'Saturday Night Fever' (1977)



Join a volunteer-run community of cinephiles for fortnightly screenings of retrospective films and talks across all genres.

Founded in 2012, Cinemaniacs was created to make cinema a truly unique experience. Collaborating with acclaimed directors, writers, actors, producers, academics and composers, Cinemaniacs allows audiences to see their most beloved films on the big screen again, or for the first time.

Each screening is presented by Melbourne’s finest film historians, and includes panels, presentations and video introductions by cast and crew from the films being screened.

If you want a truly unique experience alongside friendly, welcoming folks, then join Cinemaniacs, a film collective of movie-lovers.

Follow Cinemaniacs on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Vimeo.
