The Pilton Palais celebrates 32 years of bringing an eclectic selection of films to the Glastonbury Festival, catering for all tastes and this year is certainly no different. For the first time ever we are opening on Wednesday afternoon until midnight. Our film selections span from children’s films to horror with everything in between, so we should have something to please just about everybody.
For our younger viewers we have our early matinée screenings, and also don’t forget our surprise Advance preview screening (TBC) no prizes if you can guess what it is…
This year we’re pleased to announce that we have teamed up with MusicScreen to bring you exclusive concert footage of Keane who performed in front of a limited audience at the Goya Berlin and the highly acclaimed Laura Mvula recorded live at the Paradiso in Amsterdam. These concerts were filmed exclusively for screening in cinema so everyone has the best seat in the house (if we had seats :-). Also on Thursday we have Lambert & Stamp the highly acclaimed documentary which sheds some light on the origins of one of our Sunday headliners, The Who.
After midnight when the main stages have closed you’re in store for a real treat, so why not come in and day chill out to three classic films from the silent era accompanied by the band Minima who specialise in the art of capturing the mood on screen in their music, all performed live, with no pre-recorded material. They will be re-scoring Nosferatu (1922), Phantom of the Opera (1925) and The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1920).
Our cyborg themed Sci-Fi fest kicks off with Radley Scott’s Classic from 1982, Blade Runner, we also have the original Terminator film, Avengers: age of Ultron and Ex_Machnia.
Saturday night is party night, so why not come on down to the Pilton Palais for the classic musical Rocky Horror Picture Show. Also on Sunday we are showing the heart-warming film Pride, guaranteed to bring a tear to the eye.
