We're back! CULT Cinema & Bar and the Brunswick Mechanics Institute are excited to announce a one-off Brooklyn inspired film & cocktail event, as part of Melbourne’s city wide MEL&NYC festival.

Delve into Spike Lee’s super seductive
anti-love story SHE’S GOTTA HAVE IT, enjoy a pre-film live set of NYC inspired 90’s jams from beatmaster DJ Colette and sip on a ‘Sex on the Brooklyn Bridge’ cocktail, specifically designed for this event.

Film - She’s Gotta Have It | 1986

Spike Lee’s breakthrough independent feature, shot in fifteen days on a budget of $175,000 ushered in the American independent film movement of the 1980s. It was a groundbreaking film for African-American filmmakers and a welcome change in the representation of blacks in American cinema, depicting men and women of color not as pimps and whores, but as intelligent, upscale urbanites.

Cocktail - Sex on the Brooklyn Bridge: Archie Rose Distilling Co. Original Vodka, strawberries, lemon juice, agave syrup, soda.

Music - Colette is a DJ with intrinsic musical taste, derived from her Cape Town ancestry and a lifetime of involvement in the thriving hotbed that is the Melbourne scene, her selections traverse Funk, R&B, Dance, Hip Hop and Jazz.

2018 has shown Colette to be well and truly on the rise, delivering a universally acclaimed set at the impeccably curated Inner Varnika Festival in 2017 and securing supports for Mr Scruff, T Williams, Earl Jeffers, Throwing Shade and Rick Whilhite and also scoring a slot at the infamous Club Coco.
