About & Ticket Info
What if there's a masterpiece we've never seen?
The question haunts Dominic Smith, author of the much-loved international bestseller The Last Painting of Sara de Vos.
Dominic's new novel, The Electric Hotel, explores the origins of the silent film industry. Set in Paris, Manhattan, LA and our own Tamarama, the story spans almost a century. From real-life tales of the Lumière brothers and Thomas Edison to the almost mythical heroine Sabine Montrose, readers can smell the vinegar of the film reels and feel the dust in the air of the cinema. It's an intoxicating read.
Join us to hear Dominic discuss his new book and the inspiration behind it - including the research that took him from a former nuclear bunker to the world's largest silent film festival, and his love of the art form that led to our modern movie industry.
Monday 5th August 10:30am at Centennial Vineyards Restaurant
