Classic Southside is wheelchair accessible. For those who need it, there is an elevator inside the cinema that leads into Classic Southside. 

This is a safe space. No racism, homophobia, transphobia, classist, ableist attitudes, fatphobia or other violent behaviour will be tolerated.


Every second Tuesday night in Elsternwick, we’ll be showcasing the weirdest spoken-word performances on the Southside. 

Through poetry, essays, monologues, and manifestos, we want to turn the conventional slam night on its head.


Design by Claudia Chew.

Hosted by South of the City and fledgeling.

South of the City is a social enterprise focused on activating creative spaces on the southside with music, art and film. Run by a network of young people – musicians, artists, filmmakers and dancers – we’re invested in supporting, promoting and putting on arts events closer to home.


We respectfully acknowledge the Wurundjeri and Boonwurrung Peoples of the Kulin Nation, who are the traditional custodians of the land on which this event is taking place. We pay our respects to their elders past, present and emerging. Sovereignty has never been ceded.
