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

REBECCA 35mm d. Alfred Hitchcock, 1940 presented by The Vito Project LGBTQ+ Film Club at The Cinema Museum (20 MAR 18:00) / Part of Re-Opening The Celluloid Closet.

“The season season kicks off with a screening of Alfred Hitchcock’s 1940 multi–Oscar Winning classic REBECCA (1940), which is being shown on a rare 35mm print! Based on Daphne du Maurier’s novel, this popular classic tells the story of a young woman (Joan Fontaine) who marries the debonair widower Maxim De Winter (Laurence Olivier) only to find out that she must live in the shadow of his former wife, Rebecca, who died mysteriously several years earlier. Not only does the young wife have to come to grips with the terrible secret of her handsome, cold husband, she must also deal with the jealous housekeeper Mrs. Danvers (Judith Anderson), whose obsession with the late Rebecca provides some of cinema’s most notorious depictions of suppressed queer desire. Despite many remakes for film and TV, this arguably remains the most hauntingly unforgettable return to Mandalay.” (The Vito Project)

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).
