As I entered my early teens there were quite a few 'revival' (did we call them that?) film houses around Melbourne, the most famous of which was of course the Valhalla which at that time was in Richmond. I went to quite a few all night marathons at the Valhalla, including a rock music one, a Marx Brothers one, a Woody Allen one... I can't recall any others. The Woody Allen one included a rare screening of What's Up Tiger Lily? a film which I found unbelievably hilarious in 1978 and couldn't endure more than ten minutes of a few years ago. Also, Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex which I haven't seen again. The Valhalla would have a double feature every night of the week there. I'm amazed, in retrospect, when I think about what I saw there, from 8 1/2 (I went to that with my grandmother) to The Seventh Seal (I couldn't really concentrate on that one). There were also tons of films that were Valhalla stalwarts that I saw many times in their program and I guess figured I would eventually take in but never did. The double bill of Bof and Themroc sticks in my mind.
I know I went to the Longford in South Yarra - I am pretty sure I went there to see Carrie with my mother, though I actually don't recall the building or where it was, at all. There were also cinema screenings of old films at universities; I know I went to see Bedazzled and Take the Money and Run with my father at a university, which in my memory was Monash at Clayton (that was the only Monash campus then) although it was more likely (?) at Melbourne. A formative evening, in any case.
I note that someone(s) has revived the Valhalla name for a movable feast this year. Interesting and I wonder who will go. I might.
