Oscar®-nominated for its costume design, this Merchant Ivory adaption of EM Forster's novel, directed by James Ivory himself, is a landmark film in the history of gay cinema. Edwardian society was still reeling from the Oscar Wilde trial, and EM Forster was acutely aware of the social pressures and sanctions surrounding same-sex relationships. Unfolding in Cambridge, London and the English countryside, the story follows repressed and bourgeois Maurice Hall (James Wilby), who’s surprised by his own passions, first for a fellow student (Hugh Grant), and later for a lowly gamekeeper (Rupert Graves).

 BAFTA Princess Anne Theatre, 195 Piccadilly, London

Actress Gwendoline Christie discusses how Jane Campion’s masterpiece The Piano, newly restored in its 25th Anniversary Year, inspired her remarkable career. The event will be hosted by film and television producer, Tanya Seghatchian.  You can read the Smoke Screen review of the new print of the The Piano, as screen by the BFI at their Woman with a Movie Camera Summit, here.

Style and screen come together as Gwendoline Christie shares her passion for The Piano with us.  Gwendoline’s unique and unforgettable roles have included Officer Hilmarson in Jane Campion’s outstanding series Top of the Lake (HBO/BBCTV), and her world-famous portrayal of Brienne in global blockbuster Game of Thrones (HBO). Gwendoline’s upcoming projects include Peter Strickland’s In Fabric, to be released later this year.

Jane Campion was the first woman to be nominated in the Director category at the 1994 BAFTA Film Awards. Her acclaimed film The Piano (1993) earned six nominations, including Original Screenplay for Campion, and brought home awards for Actress in a Leading Role, Production Design and Costume Design.  Holly Hunter stars as the mute Ada, whose personal rebellion against the strictures of a nineteenth century Antipodean settlement dangerously transgresses the norms of her remote community with disturbing consequences.

Tickets and details

UCL History’s AHRC-funded Remembering 1960s British Cinema-going project presents a special, immersive 1960s cinema-going experience for a show of Bonnie & Clyde (1967). A stylish but controversial mix of romance, crime and violence (advertised as “They’re young. They’re in love. They kill people!”), this landmark film starred Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway and influenced both sixties fashion and music.

The concept of Remembering 1960s British Cinema-going involves the cinema manager, ushers and usherettes welcoming you to your seat, then a 1968 newsreel, advertisements and cartoons, plus the chance to buy boiled sweets and shake-in-the-bag crisps before the feature.This event was created using findings from UCL’s Cultural Memory and British Cinema-going of the 1960s project, which – also financed by the Arts and Humanities Research Council – collected memories from almost 1000 people who went to cinemas in the 1960s, a crucial decade in the history both of cinema and Britain generally.

UCL historians and a group of young actors have worked together on these recollections to develop an immersive cinema event that recreates the experience of cinema-going in the 1960s. You can read more about the project here

This is true low-budget filmmaking at its finest (think crowdfunding and credit cards), the Smoke Screen can testify. Read more about the film at its official website here.

In many ways indebted to the tough social realist films of Ken Loach, Sink nevertheless is also genuinely funny and left field much of the time.  It’s about Micky Mason, a skilled manual worker who, since the Crash, can find nothing but menial zero hours jobs. He takes a course of action that is completely out of character, but it’s the only way he can see of keeping his family together. Director Mark Gillis will be in attendance for a Q&A after the show.

Cigarette Burns presents: The Legend of Hell House in 35mm with director Q&A (20th Dec at Regent St Cinema)

Regent Street Cinema.

 20th December, tickets here.

The notorious purveyor of 35mm cult delights - Cigarette Burns - returns in time for the festive season. And appropriately, a Christmas movie is in the offing...although Christmas by way of the CB means something a little different from snowmen and elfs. And so on the 20th of December, the CB will screen 70s horror flick The Legend of Hell House. 

Scripted by Richard Matheson (Twilight Zone TV show, I am Legend, aka Omega Man, aka Last Man On Earth, Stir of Echos etc) and based on his book Hell House, Legend of Hell House is directed by John Hough (Twins of Evil, Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry, Watch in the Woods, Escape from Witch Mountain). In the words of the CB "together they managed to create one on the most striking and terrifying haunted house films of all time. 
Sure, it's not a film with knife wielding Santas, angry snowmen, or even revenge seeking trees. Yet, it tells the story of an intrepid, if slightly terrified group of "sensitives" spending the night in a haunted house, a house they first enter on the 20th December. 
The question is - when do they leave....?" 

After the film, Cigarette Burns will  welcome director John Hough in conversation with acclaimed film writer and journalist Kim Newman.

This leftfield "documentary" follows actor Kate Lyn Sheil preparing to play the role of Christine Chubbuck, a Florida television host who committed suicide on air in 1974. Filmmaker Robert Greene takes a very particular approach to nonfiction storytelling with this subject however, using Kate Lyn Sheil as a conduit to understanding the impossibly complex issues relating to how actors approach filming the life of someone who took their own, and how we as a society continue to probe the dead for entertainment material long after they are gone.

In career that has encompassed such controversial classics as Ms. 45, Bad Lieutenant and Welcome to New York, none of Abel Ferrara’s films have quite managed to match the shock, extremity and downright notorious nature of The Driller Killer. 

Ferrara plays struggling artist Reno, a man pushed to the edge by the economic realities of New York living in the late seventies and the No Wave band practising in the apartment below. His grip on reality soon begins to slip and he takes to stalking the streets with his power tool in search of prey… 

One of the most infamous ‘video nasties’, in part thanks to its drill-in-head sleeve, The Driller Killer has lost none of its power to unnerve and is presented here fully uncut.

Elstree 76+ Q&A with director and originalStar Wars cast member

Lexi Cinema, 23 November 6.30pm, tickets here.

This is a sweet, quietly funny and intriguing focus on 10 character actors and extras who featured in Star Wars (filmed at Elstree in 1976).  No one had any idea then that they’d forever be defined by the one or two days they spent on the set of 'yet another' sci-fi movie.  Says one:  "We thought we were making a television show."  Catch up with Dave Prowse (Darth Vader), stormtrooper Laurie Goode and cantina waitress Pam Rose, all of whom stayed in the business but never surpassed their 5 minutes of fame as bitplayers in the film. Paul Blake says with good humor, “I have played Macbeth. I’ve performed with the Royal Court Theatre.  But my epitaph will say, ‘Here lies Greedo.’ ”  And while riding the wave of Star Wars cultdom, the film also takes a step back to look at the arbitrariness of celebrity and it's place in our star-driven culture.

At this special Lexi Cinema screening,  Time Out's resident Star Wars enthusiast and film critic Tom Huddleston hosts Elstree 1976's director, Jon Spiro, the doc's producer, Hank Starrs, and also professional supporting actor, Derek Lyons, who had two roles in Star Wars .
