KING KONG 35mm
12th April 2018 @ 18:30 - 20:00
KING KONG 35mm screens at The Prince Charles (12 APR 18:30):
An editorial quirk at RADIANT CIRCUS means we list every giant/intelligent/amorous ape movie, of which this is the urtext. See also this week’s mainstream opening, RAMPAGE….
You know the story: Actress Ann Darrow (Fay Wray) and director Carl Denham (Robert Armstrong) travel to the Indian Ocean to do location shoots for Denham’s new jungle picture. Along the way, the actress meets and falls for rugged First Mate John Driscoll (Bruce Cabot). Upon arriving at a mysterious island, Ann is taken hostage by natives who prepare her as a sacrifice to the enormous ape Kong who rules over their jungle. But when Ann is rescued and Kong is captured, the real trouble begins.
Follow it up with a DIY double on the Prince Charles’ downstairs screen with GOJIRA 35mm (12 APR 21:00) which does the same for atomic fire-breathing lizards.
