Lanfranchi’s Memorial Discotheque
The last sixty days of Sydney’s favourite artist-run space. A documentary by Richard Baron / Bitter Man Films.
Lanfranchi’s Memorial Discotheque was Sydney’s favourite artist-run space, situated on the second level of an inner city warehouse.
Lanfranchi’s doubled as a residence and unauthorised performance venue for five years, growing from unlikely beginnings to become what director Neil Armfield (Candy, Belvoir St. Theatre) described as a major strand of our city’s cultural DNA.
The decaying warehouse hosted hundreds of shows and was an accessible starting point for Sydney’s emerging performers, artists and musicians. That is, until property development gets in the way and Lanfranchi’s residents are given sixty days to vacate the building.
