Starting Monday night, The Astor is going to let buck with Australia on Screen, an unabashed Australiana nostalgia feast.  For five fair weeks Melburnians with the appetite will enjoy the opportunity to dine on cultural delicacies like Mad Max, Puberty Blues and The Picture Show Man.

Over five double helpings, the Astor will serve classics from a menu that includes Mad Dog Morgan and Stone; Mad Max and The Road Warrior; The Adventures of Barry McKenzie and Dimboola; Puberty Blues and FJ Holden, and The Picture Show Man and The Lighthorsemen.

Whether you’ve got a deep pang for Aussie film or simply looking for a little sample, Australia on Screen at the Astor might just have the recipe to satisfy your summer cravings.

Australia on Screen runs from 6 Feb to 5 March
