Out of Copyright Film Night - Track of the Moon Beast (1976)

“Harris was killed by some kind of thing that was nearly 7 feet tall, had hands with claws on the fingers, and walked on feet like I’ve never seen before.”

It’s 1976 and denim hotpants, flared trousers and wide lapels dominate this horror movie from desert New Mexico. A tanned, ‘mineralogy’ studying hottie, who has a penchant for removing his shirt and keeping a lizard in a cage, is caught in a meteor shower. He’s transformed into a lizard beast who is affected by the moonlight. The dangerously-thin love interest demonstrates all of the traits of a woman in a standard-issue horror movie by being scared of everything and needing saving. Everyone looks to the mildly racist stereotype of a Native American anthropologist to help solve the murders as they rack up.

The impetuous pair play sets full of old hits, requests, new songs and unexpected (and sometimes poorly rehearsed) covers that feature Taasha’s gorgeous vocals and Tristan’s six-string mastery, way too many instrument changes, great frocks and plenty of charm.

Out of Copyright Film Night - Little Shop of Horrors (1960)

Free Event

An ultimate classic that makes the perfect date night even more perfect-er. This 1960 film about a meat-eating, sentient plant went on to inspire musicals and stage performances to this day, and even launched the career of a very youthful Jack Nicholson (he steals the scene by eating a bunch of flowers, kind of a precursor to his future film characters really...). The skid row shots are genuine, the cheesy cardboard cut out characters are a joy to watch. If you haven't planned a creative, quirky and genuine date night for someone you care about, then this is a great place to start. Popcorn provided.

Out of Copyright Film Night - Teenagers from Outer Space

Free Event

Squeaky clean 1958 America, before #MeToo, the inconvenient mess of racism and Trumpism, finds itself invaded by a group of young white men from a distant planet. One of the visitors rebels against the autocratic intergalatic regime's demand that Planet Earth be turned into a vast agricultural grazing site for giant lobsters.

He flees into middle America into the surprisingly welcome arms of the community who embrace this immigrant as one of their own.

Fabulous suits and frocks, great James Dean haircuts, but heavily wooden acting. The giant lobster is underwhelming, the tension pretty much non-existent, in this classic film from a time that extreme conservatives would have us all return to.

War of the Gargantuas (1966)

It’s 1966 and Japan is going nuts over big fighting monsters. An enormous humanoid monkey-thing is seen eating humans and wrestling with huge octopus, and the people of Japan are terrified. A smug American professor (Russ Tamblyn is the cast member speaking English, while everyone else is quite obviously dubbed) and his glamourous but traditionally helpless female assistant (Akemi Togawa) are tracking down “their gargantua” they raised from a baby, but not before it wreaks havoc in Tokyo and steps on cars.

Definitely 3 stars. The technicolor special effects are seriously worthwhile. Perfect distraction for those weird days between Christmas and New Year, and to avoid seeing your family.

George Peel, Al Wunder and Bruce Millar improvise their way through an aural landscape that evokes images of far off lands. You might even hear the story of a midnight stroll along St. Kilda beach or sense, behind the notes being played, the cacophony of machine tools that built houses, furniture and these musical instruments.

He performs solo: one guitar, one voice. Occasionally, he’ll say something funny. “Floyd Thursby has a fascinating voice. But of course, all that would be insignificant without great songs as vehicles for that voice. Thursby has armfuls of them.” (Rhythms magazine)
