Join us for the second of our Q-RATED! #QueerHorrorNights at The Castle Cinema: CARRIE (2013) Sunday 10 April 14:00.

CALL HER SAVAGE 16mm d. John Francis Dillon, 1932 presented by Women & Cocaine at The Cinema Museum (19 MAR 19:30).

“Join us for an exclusive 16MM archive screening of a fascinatingly lurid tale of extra-marital affairs, prostitution and melodrama. In one of her very rare talkies, Clara Bow, at full throttle speed, plays Nasa Springer. Nasa is a ‘half-breed’ Indian girl who marries just to spite her father, leading her down the usual thrilling pre-Code path of illegitimate birth and prostitution. She HAS to understand why she is so ‘Wild and Untamable’. CALL HER SAVAGE is also one of the earliest Hollywood films to feature a gay character and a scene in a gay bar.” (Women & Cocaine)

RADIANT CIRCUS is delighted to announce the next screening supported by #ReviveTheDark, our audience-backed campaign for distinctive/DIY cinema! Sonic Cinema presents AUSTRIAN SYNAESTHETIC CINEMA at Cafe OTO (06 MAY 20:00).
