June Film Events


May just about saved itself in its final throws, and June brings with it promises of summer skies and soaring temperatures. When the sun goes down however your trusty local cinema will have a whole host of events to keep you keen until it’s time to top up the tan again.

itself in its final throws, and June brings with it promises of summer skies

cinema will have a whole host of events to keep you keen until it’s time to top
up the tan again.

For fans of A
Clockwork Orange,
who are Manchester based, will delight in a season
dedicated to its author, Anthony Burgess,
which will be held from the 11th to the 30th of June. Marking the 50th
anniversary of the book and fortieth since Kubrick’s adaptation, the season
will include films relating to Burgess’ work, including Metropolis, Soylent Green
and Vinyl as well as the eventful
onscreen version of A Clockwork Orange.
Tickets and times can be found HERE

Hoist your Union Jacks and take your flasks of patriotic tea
down to Renishaw Hall for the Jubilee weekend and special outdoor screenings of
The King’s Speech (Main Picture) and The Queen. Each screening will be
introduced by Renishaw’s owner Alexandra Sitwell and a talk will be given by
historian Adrian Woodhouse to ease you into an evening of award winning film.

Down to Kent and as the flags fly residents can do the
Grease Lightin’ with an outdoor screening of the leather burning musical
following highlights of the ceremony on a huge screen (Click HERE for more info)

Or if you’re keen to celebrate the weekend with more cheese,
you can enjoy the nation’s favourite man and dog combo as Wallace and Gromit return with a special Jubilee based mini movie
that will be shown country wide but namely at Berkshire mansion Basildon Park
as part of their Grand Jubilee Tea Party. Fine a full run down of the big day HERE

If you want to move away from the best of British you can
get a taste of Eastern cinema with a series of Japanese events through the
month of June. Held at the Japan Foundation in central London, the season
addresses Rashomon and the Golden
Age of Japanese Cinema, the distribution of film and the relationship between
directors and their stars. Lectures are held every Wednesday from the 13th
of June to the 11th of July, and you can find a full description of
what you’re in store for plus booking information HERE

Pioneers in independent cinema Mix Rich are bringing a weekend
of Catalonian arts to its North East location on from the 1st of
June. The event includes a selection of film screenings, as well as live music
but mainly provides a chance for Catalanists to meet and discuss domestic
issues as well as familiarising locals with a little Catalonian culture. The
full programme can be found HERE

Want to find out how to spot a phallic symbol a mile off,
and want to hear someone talk about something like “The Ecstatic Pan in the
Films of Truffaut” and don’t want to pay any money, go to Senate House, part of
the University of London, on June the 26th for a Cinema,
Sexualities, Theory, a free event composed of various talks and discussions
from experts in the field. Registration is required, head HERE
to put your name down.

When horror movies just don’t hack it anymore why not scare
yourself silly by taking a ghost tour round the cinema itself? The Reel Cinema
in Plymouth was built in 1810 and is one of a small handful of buildings that
survived both World Wars as well as an internal fire and demolition in the
1930s. On the 22nd of June a nigh time investigation into the spooky
past of the theatre will take place as part of the Southwest Paranormal Investigations
society. Get your spook on HERE
