There is always something new and exciting happening in the Far Scenic South Peninsula. A group of friends who enjoy good movies have established CineSouth and will be screening their first movie Scarlet Street on Friday 29 June. Support from South Peninsula locals will see them screening interesting and thought provoking movies on a regular basis. The genres they plan to screen include: noir, cult, classic, indie and arthouse, with the odd documentary – probably environmental.
CineSouth has partnered with Cinemusewhich has experience running similar initiatives in the Winelands and also has the facilities to take credit card bookings. I look forward to supporting this initiative and enjoying Cinema Nouveaux and Labia on Orange quality films on our doorstep.

Scarlet Street- About the Movie:
Scarlet Street is a Classic Noir from acclaimed Austrian director Fritz Lang, in his American phase. Description: “Trapped in a loveless marriage, Chris Cross (Edward G. Robinson) finds solace in art, and dreams that one day a beautiful girl will love him. When one stumbles across his path, under violent circumstances, he plays the hero, then tells a lie that sends them both spiralling on a path of deceit and destruction. Joan Bennett is gloriously amoral as Kitty, and her paramour, Johnny Prince, (Dan Duryea) is a feckless heel of the highest order. Crisply understated performances, blackmail and mental torment combine to produce a stunningly original film, which was initially banned by the New York State Censor Board because of its moral ambiguity – allegedly the first film in which a criminal goes unpunished for a crime. “
1945, English Language, 103 minutes. Based on the French novel La Chienne (The Bitch) by Georges de La Fouchardière.
