Melbourne’s CINEMANIACS are presenting a screening of Neil Jordan‘s 19995 INTERVIEW WITH A VAMPIRE on 35mm at ACMI in Melbourne on Saturday 24 June accompanied by a pre-show introduction by film historian and author Dr. Alexandra Heller-Nicholas.

Anne Rice’s epic literary saga chronicling the trials and tribulations of vampires throughout the centuries comes to life in this adaptation of her novel, directed by Neil Jordan.

Louis de Pointe du Lac (Brad Pitt) has given up on life, but is then blessed/cursed with immortality by the charismatic Lestat de Lioncourt (Tom Cruise) who teaches him the way of the undead. The two foppish bloodsuckers adopt and infect orphaned Claudia (Kirsten Dunst) and thus this vampire family travel through time and locale enduring tragedies and violence throughout the years.
