Blue Velvet (18)BOOK TICKETS
At 2pm
Whether as one of the all-time greats, as one of the standout films of the 1980s, as one of the best examples of American surrealism or as one of the finest of David Lynch movies, it is time to celebrate BLUE VELVET's 30th anniversary. Here's an opportunity to see, or see again, a landmark movie which has inspired countless tributes, cultural references and parodies but still remains as subversive, surreal and shocking as it did in 1986.

Blue Velvet Revisited - The Documentary (15)BOOK TICKETS

At 4.30pm
Based on hours of footage exclusively filmed and photographed on the set of the film, Peter Braatz's documentary is a stunning and evocative record of the making of an iconic cult classic. With an all-new soundtrack by veteran experimental rockers Tuxedomoon, among others, BLUE VELVET REVISITED is an unmissable and inspirational homage to movie-making.
