ACMI and the Melbourne Cinémathèque have temporarily suspended screenings at The Capitol. But don't despair, as they've launched Virtual Cinémathèque, for a weekly movie night at home.
Virtual Cinémathèque will suggest weekly double bills that showcase classic and contemporary films on specific directors, performers or a thematic. The films will be chosen by the Melbourne Cinémathèque Committee and ACMI's Film Department and where possible, will have accompanying annotations and introductions.
Every Tuesday they'll release details of the weekly Virtual Cinémathèque via ACMI's Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, or Melbourne Cinémathèque's Facebook and Twitter, so make sure to follow.
They'll choose from freely available and accessible platforms – and the free program Metastream allows you to invite your friends to watch at the same time, from your respective homes.
Virtual Cinémathèque allows you to stay entertained and feel connected while we navigate these strange days.
