ACMI

Any good film theaters in Melbourne that show things other than current films?

Looking for anything really, older foreign/experimental/whatever films.

It's been a minute and i'm heading to melbourne for 8 days, so was wondering if anyone wants to pitch in some good nightlife spots. On my list right now:

 

E55

Mercat

Revolver

Manchuria

FFour

 

Unlikely, but if anyone knows of a bass music scene lmk

a tailor around inner-city / CBD that know what they're doing re. suit alterations? got a couple off-the-shelf numbers that need tweaking.

Other than dot.comme, Eastern Market and Someday Store, any other decent stores worth checking out? Definitely not interested in Up There-type stuff

 

e: Also, restaurants worth checking out around Southbank (or really all of Melbourne if it's incredible). Hopefully nothing that needs reservations of more than a day

hey guys, long time. coming back to Melbourne for my wedding in November and trying to find a restaurant venue that can fit 120-180 people, preferably seated but struggling. Movida Aqui is the current front runner but can only do cocktail style. any recommendations would be good, haven't been home in nearly 2 years so my restaurant knowledge is outdated!

In the city or on the outskirts ?

city, outskirts, basically anything within a 1 hour or so radius would be fair game. was thinking of the Yarra Valley as a possibility but the only good restaurant/cafe I've been to there was the Innocent Bystander and they don't do functions.

Ybarra valley have a few , most of the places that have a cellar door with a restaurant attached will do functions . Iv not eaten at any for a good decade . I like the ones on the morning perninsular Red Hill to be exact but I'm biased as I live down that way .
