MPavilion and Rooftop Cinema bring classic films to life

MPavillion joins forces with Rooftop Cinema to present  Topless Cinema. The film program runs from 11 February to 25 March, with a line-up that will inspire new ideas and open minds through a love of film and classics. All films kicks off at 8pm and drinks are available at the on-site bar.


The Love Witch (pictured below): 11th February

Playing just in time for Valentine’s Day, The Love Witch tells a story of a (possibly murderous) witch who is searching for the perfect man. Simultaneously, she also keeps busy with love spells and romantic incantations that seem to work a little too well.

Babyteeth: 18th February

Shying away from the clichés usually associated with films about young girls falling in love as they die from cancer, Babyteeth aims to showcase the deep reality of this trope. Even with Eliza Scanlen’s (Little Women) parents in the film offer an uplifting, heartbreaking performance while being deeply realised and an important part of the film.


Edward Scissorhands4th March

Edward Scissorhands is a classic story about love, grief, alienation and conformity but bottom line it’s ultimately about a guy who is really, really good at cutting hair. Don’t miss Tim Burton’s classic film that showcases his love for gothic and fairytale fascinations in a completely unique way.


Cléo From 5 to 7: 11th March

An explorative film about how beauty is perceived in our world, Cléo From 5 to 7 showcases Cléo’s real-time meander through Paris as she waits for a biopsy result. Corinne Marchand plays Cléo alongside director Agnès Varda.


Rams: 25th March

The focus of Rams is on the life, work and ten principles of good design of Dieter Rams, who had a large influence on the trajectory of modern design. Director Gary Hustwit, in previous films, discusses how people shape the world through design, but narrows down his focus in Rams to explore how one individual helped shape the world.

MPavilion @ Parkade

34 Little Collins Street, Melbourne


MPavilion is Australia’s leading architectural commission, and design event conceived and created by the Naomi Milgrom Foundation. Every year one new temporary pavilion is designed by a leading international architect and erected in Melbourne’s historic Queen Victoria Gardens. This year, instead of building a new pavilion, MPavilion 2020 will engage its original six MPavilions and prioritise an expanded program supporting local designers and artists. Melburnians will enjoy free events across the city, from the inner city MPavilion Docklands location to the Melbourne Zoo and Monash University campus in Clayton.
