Vertigo [6:00PM Screening]

Vertigo: A Black-Tie Screening at the Avon Gorge Hotel

Friday 6th March 2020 | Doors: 18:00 | Film Start: 18:20 | Approximate End: 20:30

We’re delighted to announce our first screening in partnership with the Avon Gorge by Hotel du Vin. We’ll be bringing suspenseful and striking classics of the silver screen to their recently restored Aquam Bibe event suite and celebrating some of the greatest films of all time!

Don your black tie, descend the red-carpeted staircase, collect a pre-ordered Hitchcock-themed cocktail and settle back in this magnificent new space to experience the noir masterpiece Vertigo, in view of Clifton Suspension Bridge.

There is also the opportunity to book a set menu dinner before or after the film in the Hotel’s stunning new restaurant Goram & Vincent, a new dining concept from Hotel Du Vin inspired by the legendary giants who forged the Avon Gorge that the hotel overlooks.

We look forward to welcoming you to our latest venue partner!

 

 

Vertigo

2003 | 12A | 142 mins

Police detective John “Scottie” Ferguson is forced into early retirement after a fatal accident in the line of duty leaves him traumatised and crippled by a fear of heights and vertigo. However, he is lured back into an investigation by a friend who is concerned that his wife is acting strangely, and soon Scottie finds him besotted by the enigmatic woman…

STARRING: James Stewart | Kim Novak | Barbara Bel Geddes | Tom Helmore

DIRECTOR: Alfred Hitchcock

PRODUCER: Alfred Hitchcock

WRITTEN BY: Alec Coppel | Samuel Taylor, based on a novel by Pierre Boileau & Thomas Narcejac

THEY SAY: “There’s no film like Vertigo, and now – officially! – no film as good. Such a heavy garland will draw flocks of naysayers with their own arguments. But all great art has within it some irreducible, inexplicable element, beyond its cleverness and craft. Such is the hold Vertigo has” The Guardian, 2012

WE SAY: In 2012, Hitchcock’s 46th feature film toppled Citizen Kane from the top of the BFI’s ten-yearly Critic’s Poll of the greatest film of all time, ending the latter’s 50 year reign at the top. Uneasy, unsettling, and a vital piece of cinema history from one of the most influential figures of the profession.
