01 March 2017

Earlier this week came the tragic news of the passing of Bill Paxton. The legendary and versatile actor who sprung to prominence as Private Hudson in James Cameron’s 1986 classic ALIENS and went on to appear in over fifty feature films including NEAR DARK, PREDATOR 2, TWISTER & TITANIC. Paxton had most recently been playing Detective Frank Rourke in CBS’ television adaption of TRAINING DAY.

Tributes from celebrities and fans alike have poured out via social media this week but non have touched us more than that of Melbourne’s The Astor Theatre. They will be holding a 35mm screening of Kathryn Bigelow’s 1987 vampire masterpiece NEAR DARK on Saturday April 1st in his honour.

Melbourne folks, join us on the night to both mourn the passing and celebrate the legacy of a true cinematic legend. Tickets will be available on the door on the night. For more information click here.
