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 stay at a cabin in the woods turns unnatural 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.

Enter The Dragon

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.
