Presented by ACMI & Fed Square with the support of Creative Victoria & the City of Melbourne

Bask in the setting sun outside in Fed Square, with a free selection of silent films accompanied by some not-so-silent bands.

Pull up a deckchair and join us in celebrating the early days of cinema with this free program of silent films paired with newly composed and restaged live scores.

We’ll also be shouting you gelato each evening from our friends at Cups n Cones. Serving delicious house-made artisan gelato and sorbets, there will be a selection of nine flavours to suit everyone (6 dairy, 3 non-dairy). Available from 7.30pm-9.30pm or until exhausted (limit 1 per person).
