Uncanny Valley

Until Fri 15 Dec 

Uncanny Valley2.png

Uncanny Valley is a place for dreams as well as nightmares. The hope here is to shine a lantern on the nocturnal neo-classics lurking in the shadows.

The unsung heroes of grungy science-fiction, Lovecraftian terrors by modern horror masters, social commentary in the form of farce comedies and, most importantly, strange and uncanny tales that evade definition. Be it a journey into the darkest depths of the world we live in or whimsical flights of hysteria and cringe-worthy dilemmas, we hope to showcase the flicks of decades now adrift and ones best shown at night.

As we head into the future with borrowed ideas and twisted dreams, we have our own fiction to craft, and it’s about movies.

Uncanny Valley screenings are fortnightly on Friday nights and cost £8/£6 concessions (£5 students).
