Bradford Film Festival - March 09
« on: 18 Mar 2009 - 10:08 »

Howdy,

Just wondered if anyone was going along to any screenings here.

There are a few interesting films being shown as part of a widescreen weekend, including Where Eagles Dare (now sadly sold-out), Khartoum, Beckett, Year of the Dragon, The Electric Horseman, The Bible...in the Beginning and How the West Was Won as well as some Cinerama demonstration films. More Info

I will be going to see Khartoum and Beckett on Sunday 22nd.

Would love to have seen WHERE EAGLES DARE in 70mm! I'm unable to attend any dates at the widescreen weekend this year, might be up for the Fantastic Films Weekend though.

I heard that 'Star Trek - Wrath of Khan' and 'Dune' were to be the big evening showings at this year's FFF, but not sure what else is on. I was rather disappointed last year since several of the screenings were from DVD and a lot of the audience were rather impolite during screenings - laughing uproariously at every old fashioned effect etc.

Worth it to see the two Harry Kumel films though...

I go out of my way to avoid the DVD screenings, I'd rather watch a battered vintage print of SCARS OF DRACULA any day over a DVD showing of a much better film.

Audiences laughing at improper moments is the main reason why I no longer go to the Zombie Allnighter during the Leeds Film Festival. Call me a fussy old bugger but it annoys the hell out of me.

Wow, Khartoum looked amazing shown on the curved screen. I've seen this one on DVD and TV and just never realised how truly epic it was. Certainly worth seeing.

A note for anyone interested, Cross of Iron is playing next Saturday at 4pm, I'll be there.
