The End Of A 45 Year Legacy
Come and Share One Last Month With Us

It is with a great deal of sadness and emptiness to inform you all that the Trak CineCentre will be closing at the conclusion of 2020, the culmination of forty five years of this South Australian icon and institution.

The Trak CineCentre's final day on Greenhill Road will be January 2 2021. This is a decision that is final, and it is a decision that is out of my hands.

I would like the final month of the Trak’s life to be as active, enjoyable and adventurous as possible, and I would like to be able to share this final month with as many of you as possible. I have a number of ideas I would like to attempt while I still have the opportunity, but if any of you have any suggestions or anything you might like to try out, please do let me know and I’ll see what’s possible.

Please continue to follow along here, and I will provide further information as it becomes available. Thank you so much to everybody who has made my two years or so such a special and enjoyable time. The hundred plus hour weeks, balancing two jobs.. the time, energy and effort that I have poured into this place.. I wouldn’t have had it any other way.

Thank you so much to my family and every one of my very good friends who have supported and helped me every step of the way with this. You all know who you are, and you’re all massively appreciated.

A Note Regarding CovidSafe Requirements

We've had a number of enquiries regarding the CovidSafe requirements that are in place for venues such as ours at present, so we thought we should clarify what that means for the Trak.

For our patrons, the Trak's operation presents as business as usual. For the majority of the CovidSafe requirements, our compliance is attended to with minimal visibility and inconvenience to you. The two things that you need to do are to maintain your minimum of 1.5 metres between yourselves and other groups of patrons whilst anywhere within the venue - if you're already attending as a group, you can stay as a group - and to make sure you either wash or santitise your hands on a regular basis - hand soap and air drying facilities are available in the toilets for this purpose, and hand sanitiser is available if requested.

Our Final Month on Greenhill Road

To celebrate and commemorate the Trak's forty-five year history at 375 Greenhill Road, and its forty-five year contribution to screen culture in South Australia, we have assembled a carefully curated programme of films and events - films which are significant to the Trak, films which are significant to South Australian screen culture, and films that are significant to myself - someone who is passionate about cinema, both as an art form and an environment, and the final owner and manager of the Trak during its time within it's first and original home. The reason for the selection of each film is carefully explained, whether here, on the Trak's social media channels, or in person on each occasion. I hope that you find something that suits your tastes and interests, and that you are able to share in this last month here with us.

Bookings are now available, either in person at the Trak CineCentre Box Office or on 8332 8020.

Our Special Events programmes are priced at $15. Due to the rarity and significance, and the amount of organisation, preparation, care and attention, and in some cases, significant expense that the 35mm programmes require, tickets are priced at $20. Each 35mm programme will be individually introduced, with details about the 35mm format in general, as well as specifics regarding the individual screening. While originally the industry standard for cinema, 35mm is now a niche format, and one that we care deeply about. 35mm presentation is a project that I have been working on for many years prior to operating the Trak, and has been in the works for in excess of eighteen months while we have been here. It's not entirely in a completed state, but we wanted to bring you at least a taste of it prior to departing Greenhill Road. If this is something you would like to see more of in the future, we do ask that you show your support and interest by attending one of these screenings.

Please do make the effort to book, so that we can allow time for additional screenings if required. We ask that you ensure that you arrive ten minutes prior to the scheduled screening in order to collect and pay for your tickets. If a screening has booked out and you have not arrived by the scheduled time of commencement, we may allocate your seats to walk-in customers.

Hugo is a young orphan who loves pottering around with the station clocks and whose most treasured possession is his late father's automaton. His mission is to find a key that will get it working.

Hugo, Scorcese's magical cinematic masterpiece is a screen adaptation of Brian Selznick's The Invention of Hugo Cabret. Like ourselves, Scorcese's love of cinema extends beyond the film and into the technology and environment that make the experience such a special one. While fictional, Hugo crosses into reality with one of cinema's forefathers, Georges Méliès and his work featuring prominently throughout the story. Beyond the superficial, Hugo is a gorgeous love letter to the experience that is film and cinema.

The Majestic (2001)

Show Times:
Tuesday 29/12 - 8:30pm
Thursday 31/12 - 1:30pm and 3:30pm

Format: Digital Presentation

Set in 1950s America, The Majestic centres on Peter Appleton, a Hollywood screenwriter whose career takes a nosedive after becoming suspected of communist leanings or ties. Appleton suffers amnesia following a car accident and is taken in by the people of a local town who mistake him as one of their own who went MIA during World War II. As Appleton helps Luke's father and high school sweetheart to reopen the town's sole movie theatre, questions arise about his true identity and motivations.

The Majestic beautifully captures the atmosphere and centrepiece architecture of the mainstreet American single screen cinema. The cinema was often the focal point of a town - the centre of entertainment, the centre of community, where everyone came to be on a Saturday night.. a place where people came together and shared happiness, sadness.. all the emotions that can be mustered by the magic of the silver screen and the temple in which it's housed. Just as the Majestic faded with the tough times as the town's young boys failed to return from World War II, Luke's return brought positivity and energy back to the people, who all came together to bring their movie theatre back to life.

Show Times:

Saturday 2/1/21 - 3:30pm

Format: 35mm Film Presentation

Spanning twenty years and two continents, Mary and Max follows the pen-pal relationship between two very different people - Mary Dinkle, a chubby, lonely eight-year-old living in the suburbs of Melbourne, Australia, and Max Horovitz, a severely obese, 44-year-old Jewish man with Asperger's syndrome living in the chaos of New York City.

Mary and Max screened at the Trak CineCentre at first release. I have included it within my final programme for the Trak, specifically towards the end of the programme on January 1 2021, as it is amongst the last films that I would like to have screened here. While there are so many different movies, and choosing a favourite is a very difficult choice, if I had to select only one, then Mary and Max would be my choice. In my opinion, it is amongst the finest pieces of cinema ever created.

If you've not seen it before, or you've not seen it in the cinema, then I would strongly recommend you do so on this occasion.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975)

Show Times:

Format: Digital Presentation

A flat tyre leaves Brad and Janet stranded on a stormy night. They experience strange incidents when they seek shelter in a nearby castle belonging to Frank-N-Furter, an eccentric transvestite, who presents to them his newest creation - Rocky.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show is a staple of late night, cult cinema, and ran every Friday night for over five years at the then Chelsea Cinema on Kensington Road. That being said, the first late night screenings of Rocky Horror in Adelaide originated at the Lockleys Cine Centre, which was operated at the time by Steve Buge, the original owner of the Trak CineCentre. A spectacle on its own, and open to many interpretations, Rocky Horror is often viewed as a homage to, or satire of, early B grade cinema.

The experience of Rocky Horror at the cinema is a special one indeed, but it relies upon the enthusiasm, energy and creativity of the audience. The more people come along, the more enjoyable it is for everyone involved. Don't be afraid to dress up and participate!

Show Times:
Sunday 27/12 - 8:30pm
Monday 28/12 - 3:30pm
Friday 1/1/21 - 6:30pm (Encore Screening)

Format: 35mm Film Presentation

In this visual riff on the Pink Floyd's album of the same title, successful but drugged-out musician Pink is looking back on his isolated childhood from the confines of a Los Angeles hotel room. Through a swirl of flashbacks and chemical-induced hallucinations, Pink recalls his lonely upbringing, during which he built a symbolic wall to the world as he coped with the death of his father and the overbearing ways of his mother.

The Wall has been selected for a number of reasons. Firstly, it's the first film I ever saw in 70mm, and it's one of the first films I saw on physical film after the advent of digital projection. Secondly, this film resonates quite strongly with me - a movie that explores the pointlessness and effects of war, one that tells its story through visuals and music, with minimal dialogue.. The combination of Pink Floyd's music, Gerald Scarfe's incredible animations.. One that you experience, rather than just watch. One that could be interpreted as highlighting the cyclical farce of human nature - Isn't this where we came in?

The Wall is also presented very rarely. It seems appropriate to give audiences the opportunity to experience this film in a manner they may not have done so before, or if they have, perhaps not in a very long time.

Ten-year-old Dujuan is a child-healer, a good hunter and speaks three languages. As he shares his wisdom of history and the complex world around him we see his spark and intelligence. Yet Dujuan is ‘failing’ in school and facing increasing scrutiny from welfare and the police.

Filmed candidly and intimately, we experience this world on the fringes of Alice Springs through Dujuan’s eyes. Dujuan’s family light candles when the power card runs out, often rely on extended family to drop around food and live alongside the ingrained effects of colonisation and dispossession. Every day in the classroom, Dujuan’s strength as a child-healer and Arrernte language speaker goes unnoticed. While he likes school, his report card shows a stream of ‘E’s, which make him feel stupid. Education is universally understood as a ticket to success, but school becomes a site of displacement and Dujuan starts running away from the classroom.

As he travels perilously close to incarceration, his family fight to give him a strong Arrernte education alongside his western education lest he becomes another statistic. We walk with him as he grapples with these pressures, shares his truths and somewhere in-between finds space to dream, imagine and hope for his future self.

In 1970, the Miss World competition took place in London, hosted by US comedy legend, Bob Hope. At the time, Miss World was the most-watched TV show on the planet with over 100 million viewers. Claiming that beauty competitions demeaned women, the newly formed Women’s Liberation Movement achieved overnight fame by invading the stage and disrupting the live broadcast of the competition. Not only that, when the show resumed, the result caused uproar: the winner was not the Swedish favourite but Miss Grenada, the first black woman to be crowned Miss World. In a matter of hours, a global audience had witnessed the patriarchy driven from the stage and the Western ideal of beauty turned on its head.

This film illuminates the forgotten history of Australia’s ‘Ghan' cameleers, who were predominantly Muslim and Sikh men from India, Afghanistan, and Persia, who traversed the nation’s vast desert interior, forming unique bonds with local Aboriginal people.

To escape a harsh existence and return home, a young Afghan cameleer (Ahmed Malek) partners with a mysterious bushman (David Wenham) on the run with two 400oz Crown-marked gold bars.

Together the unlikely pair must outwit a zealous police sergeant and his troopers in a race to reach a secret furnace - the one place where they can safely reset the bars to remove the mark of the Crown.
