Do The Right Thing

Underground Cinema

Sunday 11th March | Doors: 16:00 | Film Start: 16:15 | Approx. end: 18:15

Join us for another season of cult cinema classics, screened deep within the Redcliffe Caves – it’s an unforgettable way to discover, or rediscover, some of the silver screen’s hidden gems, sleeper hits and genre favourites. Venture underground into one of the most unique locations in Bristol, themed like a military bunker specially for the occasion. Treat yourself to a beer onsite from our festival partners, Wickwar Wessex Brewing, and forget the outside world for a couple of hours…

Sunday’s 2018 Underground Cinema programme continues with Do The Right Thing, Spike Lee’s controversial and critically acclaimed comedy-drama.

Please make sure that you have read the guidelines contained in the Important Information tab above before booking your tickets.

Do The Right Thing

1989 | 15 | 115 mins

Sal has owned a pizzeria in Brooklyn for decades, and keeps a ‘Wall Of Fame’ of famous Italian-Americans. When he refuses to add any black celebrities to the wall, accusations of racism and strained relationships within the community spill over into violence. On the hottest day of the year, tensions rise with the temperature.

Starring: Spike Lee | Danny Aiello | Ossie Davis | Ruby Dee | Giancarlo Esposito
Director: Spike Lee
Screenplay: Spike Lee
Producer: Spike Lee

THEY SAY: “I have been given only a few filmgoing experiences in my life to equal the first time I saw Do the Right Thing. Most movies remain up there on the screen. Only a few penetrate your soul. In May of 1989 I walked out of the screening at the Cannes Film Festival with tears in my eyes. Spike Lee had done an almost impossible thing. He’d made a movie about race in America that empathised with all the participants.” – Roger Ebert, 2001

WE SAY: Upon its release some critics were so shocked by Do The Right Thing that they feared it would incite race riots. They were, of course, proven wrong, but this film has lost none of its raw power. It melds anger and humour to captivating effect.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

PLEASE NOTE:

  • Our stewards reserve the right to refuse entry to those who they believe to be under the appropriate age for each film’s BBFC certification who cannot produce photographic ID. Refunds will not be issued if somebody who fails to produce ID is subsequently refused entry to the venue. Please bear in mind that the Caves are an intense environment and may not be suitable for younger children, even if the film is PG rated – parental discretion is advised.
  • Due to the cave’s status as a protected environment, no food is permitted into the venue. Drinks will only be permitted into the venue in plastic containers. Personal alcohol supplies may not be brought into the Caves; the onsite bar will be selling several ales from the Wickwar Wessex range. Please bring ID as our stewards will operate a Challenge 25 policy.
  • Please be aware that drunken or abusive behaviour will not be tolerated in the caves. If an individual appears to be under the influence of alcohol, or is acting in a manner deemed inappropriate by our staff, they may be removed from the venue.
  • It is advisable to wear warm, weather-appropriate clothing in the caves as well as sturdy, appropriate footwear. The caves can be cold, particularly at night, and are uneven underfoot in places. Seating is provided, but guests are welcome to bring additional cushions and blankets if they wish, although it is worth noting that they may get dusty!
  • Please follow the instructions of onsite stewards at all times, and remain on the clearly designated paths. Failure to do so may result in your removal from the premises. In the case of an emergency, the event stewards are fully briefed and will instruct you on the necessary actions to take.
