Halloween Films At The Nomad Cinema

Back in the summer, we were introduced to The Nomad Cinema – a roaming pop-up cinema that amazingly donates 100% of it’s profits to charity.  They we’re about to show the brilliant Don’t Look Now, which obviously peaked our interest!

The great news is that they’re returning with some more horror-centric events in the run up to Halloween.  They’ll be taking place at a range of different venues all over London, so hopefully there will be something you can get to.  You can grab tickets to all of the films right here.

Here’s what’s on:

The Fly: Friday 21st October

7:00pm, Farmopolis, Greenwich

At a meet the press event, eccentric scientist Seth Brundle (Jeff Goldblum), intrigues investigative journalist Veronica Quaife (Geena Davis) by offering her a scoop on his latest research in the field of matter transportation. Brundle thinks he has made a breakthrough when he successfully transports a living creature and recklessly attempts to teleport himself. However things go horribly wrong when a common housefly enters one of the transmission booths, slowly changing Brundle from the man he once was.

This gruesome classic is directed by the Baron of Blood himself David Cronenberg and is a must see for any horror or SciFi fan.

Please note: Tickets will include entry to the film, entry to Farmopolis and a drink.

The Blair Witch Project: Sunday 23rd October

7:00pm, The Hoxton, Shoreditch

Three film students vanish after hiking into the forest to shoot a documentary on the local Blair Witch legend. Once they get into the woods, the situation gradually turns ominous. They walk in circles. Something happens to their map. Nature itself begins to seem oppressive and dead. They find ominous signs. Bundles of twigs. Unsettling stick figures. Able to evoke scalp-shrivelling fear with nothing more than darkness and shadows – the film has no special effects and the horror is suggested rather than shown.​

Behind the incredible hype which accompanied the film on its release, lies a devastatingly effective ghost story.

Tickets include a cocktail and popcorn on arrival!

Little Shop Of Horrors: Friday 28th October

7:00pm, Farmopolis, Greenwich

Seymour, a poor florist’s assistant, allows his craving for fame and fortune to seduce him into playing nursemaid to a man-eating plant, Audrey II. The succulent proves such an attraction that business is soon booming at Mushnik’s flower shop. But despite Seymour’s care, the plant wilts, until accidentally he discovers that this hardy perennial has a rather unusual and voracious appetite… As poor Seymour grows weaker, the growing plant demands more, more, MORE!

With fantastic performances from comedy giants including Steve Martin as a sadistic dentist, Bill Murray as his masochistic patient, Rick Moranis as Seymour and John Candy as a wacky radio host. Ellen Greene [what a voice!] shines as the original Audrey, with The Ronettes providing a doo-wop running commentary on the bizarre Skid Row goings-on… B-movie, cult musical, GOLD!

Please note: Tickets will include entry to the film, entry to Farmopolis and a drink.

Under The Shadow: Tuesday 31st October

9:00pm, The Lexi Cinema, Kensal Rise

This Halloween, we’ll be pairing with Reel Good Film Club to bring you the chilling Iranian horror Under the Shadow. The first feature of director Babak Anvari, the film is set in war-torn 1980s Iran, as Shideh and her daughter find themselves being haunted not just by the difficulties of war, but by something else even more sinister…

Described as a “sleek, swiftly paced freakout” (Justin Chang, Variety), Under the Shadow is a unique horror film, the perfect Halloween viewing for those after something different!

The programme will include half an hour of Halloween-themed music videos from 8.30pm, with the film to start at 9pm!

Reel Good Film Club is a film club focused on promoting diversity and the work of people of colour in film through inclusive, non-profit screenings and events. Their events include film screenings, panel discussions, music video parties and quizzes. Check out their Facebook page here.
