New Australian Microcinema: 1Up

1Up is a new microcinema based in Perth, Australia that is launching with a very ambitious slate of screenings this summer. So far, they’ve released their full schedule for the months of June and July that includes a film almost every night of the week, and sometimes two films.

These are movies that have played on the international festival circuit, but many have not been released yet. So this is a rare treat to still see many of them still in a theater setting, even a 20-seat microcinema like 1Up.

The summer screening series kicks off with one of the best films to come out of Australia in recent years: Stuart Simpson‘s vicious throwback to ’60s B-movie madness, El Monstro Del Mar, which was reviewed on the Underground Film Journal last year.

Other movies that 1Up will be screening include such festival hits such as Best Worst Movie, Machotaildrop, Rock Paper Scissors, Confessions of a Superhero and Rubber. Plus, other films like Make-Out With Violence, Special When Lit, Reformat the Planet, Under the Boardwalk and more.

While the Underground Film Journal doesn’t have showtimes for the 1Up screenings, the lineup per day is below.

1Up is located at in Perth, Australia and you can perhaps get more info at the cinema’s official website.
