Star Cinema will set up camp in The Capital this weekend while the Eaglehawk Dahlia and Arts Festival takes over the Borough.

Movies will show in the Bendigo Bank Theatre from Friday, March 17, to Monday, March 20.

It is the second year Star Cinema has moved into The Capital and the cinema’s programming will remain the same.

Screening this weekend are John Pilger's documentary The Coming War on China,  French film Macadam Stories (Asphalte), Ira Sach’s Little Men and cinema classic 1984.

Star Cinema programming manager Hannah Morton said regular movie patrons would feel right at home at The Capital.

"We think the gorgeous Bendigo Bank at the Capital replicates the grandeur of the Eaglehawk Town Hall, in a smaller more intimate setting,” she said.

All tickets are at our regular prices, and can be purchased either online in advance, or at the Capital's Box office before each session.
