Out of Copyright Film Night: A Star is Born (1937)

  • The Lost Ones Basement Bar 14 Camp Street Ballarat Central (map)

Free entry

Long before Lady Gaga, Barbara Streisand and Judy Garland played variations on this classic, Janet Gaynor played starry-eyed farm kid Esther Blodgett who moves to Los Angeles in the hopes of breaking into the film industry. She catches the eye of alcoholic star Norman Maine, and is quickly caught up in the Hollywood glamour machine.

Set back in the day when your chances of becoming a star were 1 in 100,000 instead of 1 in 1,000,000, A Star is Born is the tragic story of squandered potential and volatile self-loathing created by a stellar writing crew, brought to you in glorious Technicolour.
