Ant Timpson's horror-comedy directorial debut (with a script by Greasy Strangler scribe Toby Harvard) was a festival circuit highlight throughout 2019, and we're thrilled to be bringing the fun to Central Cinema.
Join us for the latest in series of free Public Cinema screenings as acclaimed filmmaker Agnes Varda (in her self-reflective final film) examines her own work, processes and impressions of a life lived for the cinema.
Join us as we follow up The Exorcist with writer William Peter Blatty's 1980 directorial debut, adapting his own book into a haunting mix of philosophy, comedy and psychological thrills.
We're big fans of a certain strain of cinematic genre ripoffs, and The Exorcist wasn't going to rake in all that cash without suffering tagalongs like this delicious Canadian/French coproduction from 1970.
Join us on the first Thursday of every month for a celebration of ass-kicking chopsocky cinema, with a trailer reel and a handpicked feature presentation. Just $5!
The Southern Oasis Film Festival returns to Central Cinema for its second annual event, presenting a daylong program of local, regional and touring short films, plus SOFF's inaugural "Two Week Twister" filmmaking competition.
