Swinging Sixties: Double Feature


event Details

What better way to celebrate the exhibition Mary Quant: Fashion Revolutionary than two iconic, groovy, cinematic classics that will transport you back to the swinging sixties!

Alongside a fully stocked bar, you can catch A Hard Day’s Night – a 1964 rock-and-roll romp following "a day in the life" of The Beatles as fame takes them by storm – and mystery thriller Blow-Up, by critically acclaimed director Michelangelo Antonioni, wherein a bored mod-photographer discovers he’s unknowingly captured a crime scene on film.

Illustrating the British Invasion, the sexual revolution, youthquake and mod culture, showcasing a myriad of miniskirts and supermodels, and with cutting-edge sixties soundtracks, these films epitomise Swinging London like no other.

This event is proudly supported by VIVA magazine, the cultural barometer that people turn to discover the very best in fashion, beauty, food, wine and design.

Swinging Sixties: Double Feature will be located at The Hollywood in Avondale, New Zealand’s longest-running cinema palace.
