Lights, camera, action… your favourite movies are getting a rewrite!

About this event

This May, The Big HOO-HAA! Melbourne is going Hollywood and putting a spin on your cinematic favourites.

Their new show Alan Smithee celebrates the best films that cinema offers… by completely changing everything about them. Each night, we’ll find an audience member who has never seen one of the world’s most famous movies. Our hilarious performers will then improvise up a page-one rewrite on that flick based on our audience member’s out-there description of the movie. How wrong could we get it…?

Was Taxi Driver really a ribald car chase comedy? Could A Clockwork Orange have been about fruit farmers? Maybe Reservoir Dogs was really a toe-tapping Disney musical. Come along this May to see Melbourne’s funniest improvisers call cut on the classics.

“The Big HOO HAA lives up to its glowing reputation and is definitely the one to go and watch!” – What Would Mia Do

Please arrive at least 30min before the show to facilitate contact tracing, vax check, etc etc.

FAQs

Do I need to be fully vaccinated to attend?

Yes. In compliance with government requirements, you must have received your second dose before you can attend, and have proof of vaccination (or a valid exemption) in order to enter the building.

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

The Butterfly Club is a licensed venue. Accordingly, patrons under 18 are only allowed on premises in the company of a parent or legal guardian.

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

We strongly encourage using public transport. The Butterfly Club is a short stroll from Flinders Street station and Melbourne Central, and an even shorter stroll from any tram that travels through Swanston or Collins Streets (get off at Town Hall).

If driving, you can find the best parking rates in the area by visiting carparking.info (link opens in a new window).

Please call The Butterfly Club on 03 9663 8107 or reply to your email confirmation.

What's the refund policy?

If you can't attend for Covid-related reasons, you are entitled to a full refund provided you let us know ahead of time.

If the show is cancelled to comply with new restrictions or health directives, you will automatically get a full refund - no need to contact us.

Otherwise there are no refunds: exceptions are made in extraordinary circumstances at the Club's discretion. If there is a sensible reason why you should receive a refund, please contact us and we'll be happy to discuss.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No. We have a full record of all attendees and will be able to let you in whether you bring a printed copy of your ticket or not.
