pop-up

Pop Up returns to Brighton!

This summer we’re taking the Duke’s outdoors, with no fewer than 9 terrific films screening at two of the most idyllic open-air auditoria that Brighton has to offer.

We kick things off in June with a series of cult favourites in the grounds of the stunning Georgian Manor Stanmer House, set against a beautiful parkland backdrop.

In July and August, we head to the grand setting of Preston Manor in Preston Park with two weekends of cult classics and contemporary masterpieces.

Keep scrolling for full listings and booking links.

Screenings will take place around 9.00, or as soon as it becomes dark. Gates will open at 7.00.

Arrive early to enjoy the last of the evening sun and take time to discover a complimentary Leffe with some great food pairings.

Purple Rain (15) **Sold Out**

purple-rain-2

Director: Albert Magnoli.
Starring: Prince, Apollonia Kotero, Morris Day, Clarence Williams III. USA 1984. 111 mins.

This legendary movie is at once a thinly veiled Prince biopic, an ’80s glam-fest, and a glorious celebration of what might just be that decade’s greatest pop album. The plot is an archetypal tale of teen angst and rock-star ambition, but sumptuous visuals and blistering live musical performances make it a genuine rock-cinema masterpiece.

2001: A Space Odyssey (U)

2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY (1968) GARY LOCKWOOD TTO 016FOH

Director: Stanley Kubrick.
Starring: Keir Dullea, Gary Lockwood. USA/UK 1968. 150 mins.

Heralded in 1968 as the most striking sci-fi film ever, and now beautifully restored by the BFI, Stanley Kubrick’s epic meditation on human evolution follows a pair of astronauts (Dullea and Lockwood) on a mission fraught with tension as they travel to Jupiter with their omnipresent speaking computer HAL to find the source of mysterious monoliths. Often regarded as a metaphor and moral allegory, Kubrick’s film is a visual tour de force with a stunning soundtrack.

True Romance (18)

true-romance-2

Director: Tony Scott.
Starring: Christian Slater, Patricia Arquette, Dennis Hopper, Christopher Walken. France/USA 1993. 119 mins.

Written by Quentin Tarantino, TRUE ROMANCE is a hip, hard-edged story of modern love. Clarence (Slater) and Alabama (Arquette) enjoy a whirlwind courtship, until violence erupts and they find themselves on the run from police and gangsters alike. Now on a digital print for the very first time, TRUE ROMANCE looks bigger, brasher, badder and more stylish than ever.

The finest cult comedy known to humanity! Fed up with London, two ‘resting’ (i.e. unemployed) actors – a drifter (McGann) and his outrageous flatmate Withnail (Grant) – embark on a weekend in the countryside that soon turns into a hilarious disaster, especially when Withnail’s terrible Uncle Monty (Griffiths) turns up. Screening in a newly restored version that returns the look of the original 35mm print.
