Out and about in Melbourne

While we do still have some amazing old buildings in Brisbane, we have nothing like what you can see out and about in Melbourne. There’s lots of interesting street art as well, like this piece we came across in St Kilda. I keep seeing new elements every time I look at this one!

On Sunday we saw the Hitchcock classic North by Northwest in this lovely old theatre on the border of St Kilda and Windsor, complete with musty leather seats and peeling plaster. I think if we lived in Melbourne we’d be spending quite a bit of time at the Astor, as they have an extensive program of classic movies!

Earlier in the day we’d seen a Hong Kong action movie (yes, two movies in one day – there are no rules on holiday!) in another amazing old building that had been converted into a cinema, Melbourne Central City Cinema on Swanston Street in the CBD – where a very sci-fi structure has been built around an old factory.
