After eight months in lockdown, Victoria is finally open for business again. Indoor cinemas are back this week, albeit with limited 20-seat per space capacity. This makes it hard for proprietors to make ends meet (and seems odd considering the rules around more spittle-risky venues like restaurants). Hopefully a continuing string of donut days will bring about relaxed rules.
Australian films now viewable on the big screen include Babyteeth, Dirt Music, Rams and Never Too Late, as well as feminist documentaries Brazen Hussies, and for the first time on Victorian screens, The Leadership (Cinema Nova).
