Venture underground into the Redcliffe Caves this March, as the festival’s biannual screening series returns – our Underground Cinema an unforgettable way to discover, or rediscover, some of the silver screen’s hidden gems, pop culture milestones and genre highlights.
Delve deep into one of the most unique locations in Bristol, and forget about the outside world for a couple of hours… Whether you’re settling down for a favourite fantasy film or a cult classic, it’s sure to be one of the year’s most memorable movie viewing experiences.
Sunday of our March 2020 season focuses on the darker side of fantasy, and our afternoon programme continues with the delightfully creepy big kids’ film Coraline.
There are soft, hot and alcoholic beverages available to purchase at the surface, including a pop-up ale bar courtesy of our festival partners, Wickwar Wessex Brewing.
Please make sure that you have read the guidelines contained in the Important Information tab above before booking your tickets.
Bored and feeling neglected by her parents after moving home, young Coraline finds a secret door that leads to a fantastic parallel world that mirrors her own. Initially, she is enamoured with this seemingly idyllic substitute, but there are troubling questions that mask dark answers – like why does her new mother have buttons sewed over her eyes…?
THEY SAY: “It is certainly exciting, but rather than race through ever noisier set pieces toward a hectic climax in the manner of so much animation aimed at kids, Coraline lingers in an atmosphere that is creepy, wonderfully strange and full of feeling” – The New York Times, 2009
WE SAY: A must-see for any Tim Burton fan, this brilliant indie gem (the debut feature for the studio that also produced Paranorman and Kubo and the Two Strings) has enough darkness to entice adults as well as braver children! Beautifully animated and has flashes of the murkier elements of Alice In Wonderland, too…
