This is your last chance to catch a cult classic film at the iconic Lumen Room at Metro Arts Brisbane. The heritage-listed building will be sold in 2020 after almost four decades as a central hub for the artists of Brisbane.

One of many independent cinemas in Brisbane, The Lumen Room has been a venue to watch your favourite retro movies with monthly marathons.
