(GB, QA, JO, Babak Anvari, 2016) 15 cert. 84 min. TBC

If one says a film, like Under the Shadow, was the scariest movie “someone” saw in 2016, such comment would invite pantomime-like responses: “oh, no it isn’t!”  So I won’t say this supernatural thriller set in Tehran during the height of the Iran-Iraq war, where a mother and young daughter struggle to cope with the terror of almost nightly bombardments, while also haunted by a malevolent spirit, is the scariest film of the year, but, like The Babadook, it’s damn scary!

Tickets £5 on the door. Café Bliss will be open before the screening for light refreshments.

    (US, GB, Jim Hosking, 2016) 18 cert. 93 min

    Rescheduled screening! An audacious feature film debut by British filmmaker Jim Hosking. Similar in tone (and disgust level) to John Waters’ celebrated Pink Flamingos, Ronnie and his son Brayden compete for the love of the voluptuous Janet; meanwhile a grease-covered serial killer is stalking the bizarre residents. Laugh-out-loud funny, this film is an honest-to-goodness “instant cult classic”!

    Tickets £5 and available on the door
