“To those who are enthralled by mountains, their wonder is beyond all dispute. To those who are not, their allure is a kind of madness.”

Narrated by Willem Defoe, and scripted by Robert Macfarlane (‘Mountains of the Mind’) this new film by ‘Sherpa’ Director Jennifer Peedom is a poetic meditation on mountains everywhere.

“A bit Up, a bit Moonrise Kingdom, a bit Midnight Run, even… Taika Waititi’s latest is an oddball treat of a mismatched-buddy pursuit movie” – Empire

Moon film from ETC at Magic Rock Tap

“Moon is a gripping sci-fi tale, but also has a lot of heart and humanity.” The Times

“They do make ’em like they used to – a fresh blast of old-school sci-fi, bursting with ideas and a stellar turn from Rockwell.” Empire

Sunday 25 March

Subway

FR/1985/Dir Luc Besson

Cast includes: Christopher Lambert,  Isabelle Adjani,  Richard Bohringer, Michel Galabru,  Jean-Hugues Anglade,  Jean-Pierre Bacri,  Jean Reno

A hugely fun and stylised second feature from Luc Besson (Leon, Fifth Element). Fred lives an opportunistic existence in the Paris subway system, surviving on whatever he can scam or steal. This is brutal, violent subterranean world, lit only by an artificial fluorescent glow and populated by all sorts of strange denizens. An offbeat romantic thriller which retains the love of weird incidental characters and surreal detail.

Subway film from ETC at Magic Rock Tap

“Luc Besson’s first film is a seedy look into Parisian subway culture.” Sunday Times (Australia)

“More style than substance here but what style it is and what little gems of cinematic moments collect together in this enjoyable ensemble.” Empire

Magic Rock Tap, Willow Lane, Huddersfield. Film starts 6:00pm.

Tickets £5/£4 (conc.) available at: https://www.ticketsource.co.uk/electric-theatre-cinema

Repo Man film from ETC at Magic Rock Tap

“A cult film par excellance.” Film4

“Repo Man has the type of unerring energy that leaves audiences breathless and entertained.” Variety

“There are endless things to enjoy, from Robby Müller’s crisp camerawork to a superb set of performances, from witty movie parodies to a tremendous punk soundtrack.” Time Out

Magic Rock Tap, Willow Lane, Huddersfield. Film starts 6:00pm.
