An evening of cinema you will see, hear and SMELL!

The nose knows! Join us for a fun night out, in celebration of the history and future of scented cinema. During this participatory event, you will experience the magic of cinema with eyes, ears and most importantly your NOSE.

Smell is our most primitive sense. Smell is the sense most linked to memory. Smell transports us to our past and evokes emotions.
Join us as we break through the final frontier of full sensory engagement in immersive experiences at this gloriously scented cinema event!
First up is “A Tale of Old Whiff” (1960), the only cartoon to be written for smell. Whiff, a bloodhound rescued from the pound, is put to work by an intrepid detective to search for a museum’s missing dinosaur bone worth $100,000. One small problem, Whiff has anosmia — he can’t smell a thing! Luckily we can. This classic animation features eight scents, including fresh-cut grass, hotdog and bone.
Our feature for the evening, IN GLORIOUS SMELL-O-VISION! THE TRUE STORY OF THE GODFATHER OF SCENTED CINEMA, is a documentary telling the story of unsung hero, Swiss inventor Hans Laube. His ‘Smell Brain’ technology premiered in 1960 with The Original Stinker: “Scent of Mystery,” a big budget Hollywood feature, directed by Academy award winner Jack Cardiff and featuring an all-star cast, including Elizabeth Taylor.But the film bombed, and “Scent of Mystery” went down in history as the first — and the last — to be presented in Smell-O-Vision!

But why?

Australian filmmaker Tammy Burnstock makes it her mission to get to the bottom of what went wrong, along the way uncovering a very human story of innovation, heartbreak and redemption. The documentary also explores the power of smell in our lives, and features scent artists at the cutting edge of olfactory innovation and scented art.

Audience members will experience the joys of Swiss chocolate, a Spanish rose, a Scent of Mystery fragrant clue, NYC in the 1950s, Sweet Anatomy’s Confection, death by port wine, the Running of the Bulls and even a Peter Lorre scent joke! Our aim is to spread the joy of the scented cinema experience far and wide and have fun doing so, while celebrating Hans Laube’s marvellous invention. Which may just have a future after all.

IN GLORIOUS SMELL-O-VISION! is co-written and directed by Chicago-based Emmy-winning and Grammy-nominated John Anderson and Sydney-based scented storyteller Tammy Burnstock.

So join us for this smelly treat at the Brunswick Picture House. Treat your taste buds too, with food from locals Rachael and Reggie @ripe.for.the.picking, and Margaritas by @drinklisto.
