Forthcoming pre-film talks
We’ve got pre-show talks coming up at a number of screenings at the Errol Flynn Filmhouse over the next few weeks, helping you get more out of your movie!
Prior to the 8.30pm screening of The Fifth Estate, on Tuesday 26 November, Hilary Scott, Senior Lecturer in Journalism at the University of Northampton, will be giving a free pre-show talk, starting at 8.10pm. The Fifth Estate sees Benedict Cumberbatch take on the role of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, exploring the early days of the organisation as they began exposing major political and corporate conspiracies.
There will also be a free pre-film talk by Dr Lorna Jowett, Reader in Television Studies at the University, at the screening of space disaster movie Gravity (starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney) on Wednesday 4 December. The talk will start at 6pm, with the film following at 6.15pm.
November also sees the launch of our new Cult Film Club, run in conjunction with staff and students of the School of the Arts at the University of Northampton (but open to anyone to attend). Screenings will be preceded by exciting short introductions that explore the films in their artistic and socio-historic context. The first of these will be the 1965 classic Doctor Who And The Daleks, on Thursday 28 November, with the talk at 6pm followed by the film at 6.15pm.
