Thank god it’s Friday ... Calling all thrill-seekers and horror junkies. Girls School Cinema is taking Black Friday to the next level on September 13 at a back-to-back screening of horror classics, Friday the 13th and Friday the 13th Part II. Girls School Cinema will fill the iconic halls with thrilling and spine tingling surprises, with special appearances of Jason from Friday the 13th himself.
At Girls School Cinema, the fun starts way before the movie does! Movie-goers can arrive from 6pm to toast marshmallows in the stunning courtyard, or kick back and enjoy Mack Daddy’s New York Slice’s gloriously cheesy pizzas in the luxe lounge before the movie.
Girls School Cinema runs until 12 October every Wednesday to Sunday. Tickets are on sale now and start at just $17 for standard admission.
What is the Old Perth Girls School? The historic 1930s Old Perth Girls School building is iconic in its ‘Egyptian Art-Deco’ grandeur (it’s a thing apparently – check out the pyramids on the roof!). The castle-like building operated as a school for thirty years and then a Police centre for fifty years. Some remember going to school there. Others remember going there for traffic branch business. A few remember going there to visit major crime and the dog squad. Some of them are still in prison.
Earlier this year, Girls School hosted the FRINGE WORLD Festival run-away success event A Midnight Visit. Part choose-your-own-adventure, part theatre, part film-set, part playground; A Midnight Visit transformed 34 rooms into an unbelievable fantasy world, introducing a whole new audience to the area.
Girls School Cinema is located at 2 Wellington Street. How to get there
