Palace Touring: 2019 Music Film Festival

This event has passed!

AUGUST 1 - 14

Screening in Perth at Cinema Paradiso

Palace Cinemas in partnership with Young Henrys, presents the inaugural Palace Touring: 2019 Music Film Festival - a kaleidoscopic series of the most iconic music feature films covering the past 40 years.

Opening night (on August 1) is the Australian Premiere of THE DOORS: THE FINAL CUT, directed by Oliver Stone, with a complimentary drink on arrival. This stunning 4K restoration is the King Kong of rock movies, portraying the psychedelic 60’s and the myth of The Doors’ iconic front-man Jim Morrison.

The beat continues with THE BEATLES: EIGHT DAYS A WEEK, a film delving into the iconic bands touring years in the mid 60’s, exploring their inner workings, to the development of their music and the eventual phenomenon that became Beatlemania.

Continuing with the British theme, the movie CONTROL brings us a poignant, white and black biopic of Joy Divisions Ian Curtis, whilst AMY (winner of the 2016 Academy Award for Best Documentary) is a powerfully honest look at the twisted relationship between art and celebrity experienced by British star Amy Winehouse.

The ball turns to disco, with the cultural phenomenon SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER and moves to SUPERSONIC, a look at Britpop’s iconic band Oasis. A tribute to singer/songwriter Joni Mitchell is also found in JONI 75: A BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION.

The power of music is portrayed beautifully in GURRUMUL, a celebration of blind indigenous singer songwriter Yunupingu, who finds purpose and meaning through music inspired by his community in North East Arnhem Land.

Other films on show will be rock-n-roll mockumentary THIS IS SPINAL TAP, plus 20,000 DAYS ON EARTH and THE LAST WALTZ.

Hot off the heels with screenings at SXSW and Sydney Film Festival, the festival curtain is closed with THE CHILLS: THE TRIUMPH & TRAGEDY OF MARTIN PHILLIPPS. This brand new music documentary is an honest and inspiring tribute to New Zealand music’s most genius and loved bands, as told through the eyes of their eccentric band leader.

The Palace Touring: 2019 Music Film Festival a series combines a variety of musical and cinematic genres that are united in the myriad of emotion that music brings to life.

The festival runs from August 1 – 14 at selected Palace Cinemas Australia wide and screening in Perth at Cinema Paradiso.
