This November and December, local movie exhibitor Kristian Fletcher rounds up 2019 with a program of cult & classic movie screenings at Metro Arts, 109 Edward St Brisbane City.
The Lumen Room – located on the ground level of Metro Arts – has remained an iconic independent cinema, having screened movies regularly since 1980.
