Young at Heart

Back again at Palace Cinemas – the Young at Heart Film Festival offers a whole week of adventurous and diverse movies at amazingly low prices for Golden Club members

Said to be the only film festival in the world catering to film lovers over 60, but really, it’s hard to see a lot of difference in the programme to what’s regularly on offer at our art-house cinemas. A fair sprinkling of the films will be getting regular releases too– most notably Neruda, from multi-award winning director Pablo Larraín (Jackie) and starring Latin heartthrob Gael García Bernal, and Their Finest, Lone Scherfig’s (An Education) magnificent romantic drama starring Bill Nighy and Gemma Arterton.

Also noteworthy are Viceroy’s House, a sweeping period drama about the British retreat from India; the London romance for book-lovers and gardeners alike, This Beautiful Fantastic, and the Australian premiere of Whiteley, a doco on the Australian modern artist Brett Whiteley.

All up there are twelve movies, including three favourites from the past – The Lion in Winter starring Peter O’Toole and Katherine Hepburn, The Third Man with Orson Welles, and a stunning 4K restoration of Michael Powell ‘s The Tales of Hofffmann.

Perhaps best of all are the prices – just $7 for Golden Movie Club members, or $7.50 for regular pensioners discount.
