We are really pleased to be presenting our upcoming season of films for 2013. There is one final addition to the programme, which we are in the process of confirming, so do check back in the next week or two for details of that, but in the meantime, get out the diary and start marking up dates! We’re looking forward to seeing you all at events around the South East soon!

I posted about this remarkable film a couple of weeks ago, so for further information, please look back to my last post. Last time, I included the trailer, but for those of you who can’t wait for the event, here’s a few Q&As about the film from the BFI:

The Golden Age of Hollywood Weekend

Sunset Boulevard (1950) [PG]

Friday 5th April, 7.30pm (doors 7.00pm)

Widely regarded as one of the greatest films of American cinema, Billy Wilder‘s classic noir is a scathing satire of the movie industry.

Saturday 6th April, 4.00pm (doors 3.30pm)

Gene Kelly’s comedy-musical is a lighthearted look at Hollywood’s transition from silent film to ‘talkies’. Starring Kelly alongside the undisputed talents of Donald O’Connor and Debbie Reynolds, the films boasts instantly recognisable tunes, fun and awe-inspiring dance routines and charming comic performances. A sure-fire hit for the entire family! dance routines and charming comic performances.

Filmspot at Newhaven Fort

Filmspot are delighted to be working with Newhaven Fort again in 2013 for three exciting film screening events. Expect theatrical touches, installations, as well as period trailers and newsreels to set the scene. Themed refreshments will be available, including a licenced café.

The Dam Busters (1955) [U]

at Newhaven Fort, Thursday 16th May, 7.30pm (doors 6.30pm)

To celebrate the 70th anniversary of the RAF Squadron 617’s raid on the Ruhr Valley dams, Filmspot are pleased to be presenting a special screening of The Dam Busters at Newhaven Fort, as part of Museums at Night.

Based on true events as featured in the book Enemy Coast Ahead by Wing Commander Guy Gibson, the film focuses on scientist Barnes Willis’s (played by Michael Redgrave) work on the ‘bouncing bomb’ during WWII, as well as on the mission itself. The breathtaking footage of aircraft required that five Lancaster Bombers were rebuilt, with the aircraft expenses making up a tenth of the film’s overall budget. With its ‘docu-drama’ tone, stellar cast and memorable music, The Dam Busters is regarded as one of the finest British war films.

Tickets for The Dam Busters are free but must be booked in advance.
