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 suspense 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 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!

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.

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.
