Due to a distributor change, we are no longer able to screen CLOVERFIELD 3 (aka THE CLOVERFIELD PARTICLE), as originally scheduled as the second feature on Saturday 7 July, following A QUIET PLACE. In its place will instead be a 50th anniversary screening of the 1968 horror classic, ROSEMARY’S BABY.
In the Oscar-winning landmark film, young Rosemary Woodhouse (Mia Farrow) and her struggling actor husband move into an old New York City apartment building, undeterred by its ominous reputation and their odd next-door neighbours. When Rosemary becomes pregnant, however, she begins to find herself increasingly isolated from the world and her circle of friends, which enfolds her in a shroud of suspicion and mental agony. Is there a sinister conspiracy at play, or is she simply being paranoid?
Directed by Roman Polanski, ROSEMARY’S BABY will now screen at approximately 8:45 PM on Saturday 7 July, following A QUIET PLACE at 7 PM. We apologise for any inconvenience caused by this change.
