Cult Horror Classic: Night of the Living Dead (15), 1968, B&W, 96 mins
Sunday 30 October, 8pm, doors 7pm
Night of the Living Dead
The first film directed by George A. Romero, Night Of The Living Dead gave birth to the zombie walk used in every zombie film since (the walk was apparently based on silent film star Boris Karloff). Despite being in Black & White and a low budget indie film, Night Of The Living Dead, was a box office hit when released and has since become a cult classic.
Synopsis: Night of the Living Dead follows Ben (Duane Jones), Barbra (Judith O’Dea), and five others, who are trapped in a rural farmhouse in Pennsylvania and attempt to survive the night while the house is being attacked by mysteriously reanimated ghouls, otherwise known as zombies.
If it doesn’t scare you, you’re already dead!
It will screen on Sunday 16 October at Pollokshaws Burgh Hall.
The film will start at 8pm, doors at 7pm. Tickets are £5 (£6 on the door) and are available in advance, on the night and also online from Tickets Scotland (search by date or for Southside Film, with £1 booking fee).
Advance film tickets are available from Young’s Interesting Books, Skirving St, Shawlands and at iBop on Fri 4 October at Pollok ExServicemens Club, Titwood Rd, Crossmyloof.
The Cabinet of Dr Caligari/Das Kabinet des Dr Caligari with live Wurltizer cinema organ (U) 1919, B&W, 71 mins
Pollokshaws Burgh Hall
Sunday 16 October, 8pm
The Cabinet of Dr Caligari
Considered by many to be the best horror film of the silent era, The Cabinet of Dr Caligari/ Das Kabinet des Dr Caligari is a classic example of German expressionism and is still impressive today. The film was shocking and original when released, partly due to its twist ending, but also because of its warped and confused world and its twisted and crooked sets.
Synopsis: At a fair, Alan and his fiancée Jane meet Dr. Caligari and his somnambulist, Cesare, who can predict the future. Cesare reveals to Alan that he only has until dawn to live. This prediction proves true when Alan is murdered. Cesare becomes the prime suspect and then abducts Jane before dying himself. Dr. Caligari retreats to a mental asylum, where his truth is revealed.
Don’t miss this screening in the beautiful surroundings of Pollokshaws Burgh Hall! with Wurtlizer organ accompaniment by organist David Gray, Royal Academy of Music student & Young Organist of the Year. Licensed bar and ice cream available.
