THE SATURDAY MORNING ALL YOU CAN EAT CARTOON PARTY (180 minutes) Unrated
Assembled by the gifted programmer and author Kier-La Janesse (House of Psychotic Women), this ragbag of vintage cartoons, serials and other odds and bods gives audiences raised in the 1970s and ’80s the chance to flash back to childhood memories of early morning viewing, albeit in the afternoon and on a much bigger screen. A range of cereals will be on offer. Astor Theatre, tomorrow, 2pm.
THE SILENCES (76 minutes) M
Australian filmmaker Margot Nash (Vacant Possession) has never shied away from the personal, but this film memoir delves directly into the web of family secrets and traumatic memories that lies beneath some portion of her previous work. Nash unfolds the tale in a characteristically artful manner, maintaining suspense while speaking from the heart. Cinema Nova.
CHARLIE’S ANGELS (97 minutes) M
Rebooting the original 1970s TV show for the era of girl power, Austin Powers and The Matrix, this absurdist 2000 action-comedy is credited to the video-clip director McG – but the real creative force is producer Drew Barrymore, joyously vamping it up alongside co-stars Cameron Diaz and Lucy Liu. Sixteen years on, this still supplies a sugar rush. Presented by Hot Tub Cinema. Digitally projected. The Common Man (South Wharf), tomorrow, 7pm. Wet and dry tickets available. Entry restricted to 18+. Booking essential (splashouthire杭州龙凤419m.au).
TITANIC (195 minutes) M
Time hasn’t been kind to the romantic scenes in James Cameron’s 1997 mega-blockbuster starring Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio (looking barely pubescent at 22). But once the ship hits the iceberg, it becomes a thrilling and appalling spectacle, which like all Cameron’s best work demands the big screen. 70-millimetre print. Sun Theatre, tomorrow, 1pm.
CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR (146 minutes) CTC
Directed by the fraternal team of Anthony and Joe Russo, the latest instalment of Marvel’s Avengers saga splits the cast of superheroes into opposing teams led respectively by the Captain (Chris Evans) and Iron Man (Robert Downey jnr). By now the entire Marvel enterprise resembles an enjoyably goofy big-budget TV show, incorporating everything from political satire to slapstick. General.
