The Hidden Mirror Salon & Screening review


The Hidden Mirror Salon & Screenings

Upstairs 42A Chapel Street. St Kilda. Thursday nights opening at 7pm. $20 Casual entry fee. $15 Members. Inquire about membership at the venue. (accompanying shared platter and drink with entry.)

Another exotic and heart filled evening of good company, conversation, delicious wine, cheese and fruit platters, turkish coffee and magical entertainment at The Hidden Mirrors Salon; St Kilda’s best kept underground cinema.

Tonight was Top Hat made in 1935 featuring Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers weaving rhythmic perfection in dance performances for “Isn’t This a Lovely Day?” and “Cheek to Cheek”. Made even more riveting and dynamic  because Astaire believed that movie dance numbers should be shot in unbroken takes that ran as long as possible and in this case performing an achievement in endurance as well as artistry.
