AvP promo 1

 

2017 marks the 30th Anniversary of the cult sci-fi action classic Predator, to celebrate this we’ll be putting it head-to-head in a double-bill screening with another of the most iconic creatures from another world – Alien.

We start in deep space, as we follow the crew of the commercial starship the Nostromo, as they are awakened from cryo-sleep halfway through their journey home upon the discovery of a signal coming from a nearby planet.
When they investigate, they find the ruin of a spacecraft, and discover more than anything they could have possibly imagined.
Featuring iconic movie heroine Ellen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver), Alien is a landmark sci-fi horror.

We then head earthbound to a mission in the Latin American jungle, as we follow a military rescue unit searching for allies captured by guerrilla forces, who then become hunted by a Predator from another world.
With Arnold Schwarzenegger in one of his most iconic roles, the commandos find themselves in a fight to stay alive.

The Thing & Big Trouble in Little China
double-bill screening

Saturday August 26th, 2017

promo

 

The movie partnership of legendary horror film director John Carpenter and Hollywood favourite Kurt Russell produced several films through the 1980’s and 90’s, we’re celebrating this movie duo with a back-to-back screening of a pair of films holding a cult status only matched by their levels of danger from another world – The Thing, and Big Trouble In Little China.

2017 marks the 35th anniversary of John Carpenter’s The Thing – set in the winter of 1982, a twelve man research team at a remote Antarctic research station discover alien life buried in the snow.
Soon unfrozen, the form changing alien takes host of members of the team, picking them off one by one, in a bid to survive and escape.
With ever-increasing tension, iconic special effects, and a superb score from Oscar winning soundtrack legend Ennio Morricone, The Thing is a landmark sci-fi horror.

Then to round off the evening, we head to the streets of San Francisco’s Chinatown, for a film which the director John Carpenter described as an “action adventure comedy kung fu ghost story monster movie” – Big Trouble In Little China.
Jack Burton (Kurt Russell) is a loud-mouthed truck driver who finds himself caught up in a supernatural conflict, when his friend’s girlfriend is kidnapped to be married to a 2000 year old evil spirit named Lo Pan, who intends to break his curse and gain a new physical body.
Jack goes to the rescue – cue martial arts, bullets, monsters and one-liners, as he battles to save the world from evil, and hopefully get his truck back…

Evil Dead 2 – 30th Anniversary Screening

Friday March 31st, 2017

 

EvD2

 

2017 marks the 30th anniversary of a film widely regarded as the definitive cult horror – Evil Dead 2.

Evil Dead 2 follows the story of Ash (played by Bruce Campbell), whose trip away to a cabin in the woods turns to disaster following the discovery of the Book of the Dead, when an evil is released from which he must survive the night.

Having to defend himself against evil spirits, zombies and a possessed hand, we see why Evil Dead 2 became an influential cult movie favourite – with the perfect balance of gore and humour, it’s an imaginative and unique horror film that’s delirious and demented fun.

Hosted at the Abbeydale Picture House – a Grade II listed 1920’s picture palace cinema, bringing the sense of occasion to match an anniversary of this genre defining horror spectacular.

With a bar stocked up with a selection of beer, ale, wine and popcorn, Evil Dead 2 will provide sensational Friday evening entertainment…

Following our last event at the Abbeydale Picture House celebrating a Bruce Lee anniversary with a screening of Enter The Dragon, we hope you’ll join us for the first film event at the venue in 2017 with another anniversary celebration screening of a true cult classic.

Friday March 31st
£7
Doors open 7pm, film starts 8:30pm.

Read our review of Enter The Dragon >here<

 

November 27th 2015 marks what would have been Bruce Lee’s 75th birthday – an anniversary which will be celebrated at the Abbeydale Picture House with a screening of his final film, Enter The Dragon.

Enter The Dragon is widely regarded as one of the greatest martial arts movies of all time – in it we follow Lee, a Shaolin martial artist from Hong Kong, who receives an invitation to a martial arts tournament organised on an island fortress by the criminal warlord known as Han.

Going undercover on a mission to restore Shaolin honour and avenge the death of his sister, we see why Bruce Lee became known across the world as one of the most exciting stars on screen, in the most enthralling martial arts movie of its time.
