The historic cells below Old Bridewell police station (now The Island) are being brought back to life for our latest Crime Screens series – this autumn, the theme is ‘Undercover Cops’, with Tarantino and Scorsese classics alongside a cult comedy hit… Come and explore this unusual location: take a “cell-fie” in a holding cell or against our mug shot wall, and enjoy a lock-in for a movie experience to remember long after you’re on the outside again!
The screenings begin with Quentin Tarantino’s legendary debut feature film, Reservoir Dogs.
Please make sure that you have read the guidelines contained in the Important Information tab above before booking your tickets.
Six criminals are brought together to commit the perfect heist – they have never met before, and only know each other as pseudonyms. However, after a bloody police ambush derails the meticulous plan, the survivors realise that there must have been a mole among them from the start…

THEY SAY: “Like it or not (and many people will have their doubts), writer-director Quentin Tarantino has arrived, in your face and on the screen. His brash debut film, Reservoir Dogs, a showy but insubstantial comic opera of violence, is as much a calling card as a movie, an audacious high-wire act announcing that he is here and to be reckoned with.” Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times, 1992
WE SAY: Whether you love or loathe Tarantino, it’s difficult to deny that he has expertly crafted his own unique style, and watching his electrifying debut shows just how confident he has been in asserting this vision from the very outset of his career. Taut, tense, and brilliantly acted.
