Mulholland Drive

Underground Cinema

Saturday 10th March | Doors: 13:15 |Film Start: 13:30 | Approx. end: 16:00

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…

We’re delighted to be screening David Lynch’s neo-noir mystery Mulholland Drive – the Caves are the perfect venue pairing for Lynch’s dark surrealism.

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

Mulholland Drive

THEY SAY: “The best film of the century so far […] There is something endlessly fascinating about a film that prioritises questions over answers, stretching our expectations of what cinema can achieve while scene by scene also providing a richly fulfilling experience. Perhaps the biggest mystery of all is how on earth Lynch pulled it off.” – Luke Buckmaster, BBC Culture, 2016

WE SAY: David Lynch has been delighting and confounding audiences in equal measure ever since Eraserhead but it is with this film – which effectively launched Naomi Watts’ career – that he truly comes into his element. Fans of Twin Peaks will be especially delighted by a turn from Michael J. Anderson (The Man From Another Place) and another evocative score from Angelo Badalamenti. Whatever your thoughts on it, you’ll be thinking about Mulholland Drive for weeks to come.



  • 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.
