#QueerHorrorNights continue with David Cronenberg’s THE FLY (1986) at The Castle Cinema (Friday 24 JUNE 19:00): booking now!

TEOREMA 35mm d. Pier Paolo Pasolini, 1968 + Live music by Marta Salogni presented by Wonder Reels at The Cinema Museum (28 MAY 19:30).

“Wonder Reels return to the Cinema Museum with their unique events featuring live performances from outstanding London musicians followed by a 35mm screening of a full feature film chosen with the artist in mind.”

“The event will start with a performance by artist Marta Salogni who duets with tape machines, using them as instruments to weave intricate mazes of tape loops and echoes through the manipulation of both live and recorded sounds.”

“The concert will be followed by a 35mm projection of Pasolini’s 1968 masterpiece TEOREMA, in which a beautiful stranger destroys the bourgeois world of a Milanese family. This is an original print, so as was the practice at the time, this is an English language dubbed version.”
