Picturehouse Cinema is excited to be teaming up with the UK's best-selling film magazine EMPIRE in a joint 30th-anniversary celebration!
To mark the occasion we're combining our love of film to hail 30 of some of the most adventurous filmmakers from the last three decades. Together we'll feature the directors and their films in EMPIRE magazine and via special events at Picturehouse Cinemas. Look out for supporting content online, on the successful EMPIRE podcast as well as the Picturehouse podcast - the first-ever cinema to launch its own pod! The program of thirty nationwide screenings, specially curated by the EMPIRE team, will reflect the work of 30 adventurous filmmakers from Steven Spielberg, Kathryn Bigelow, James Cameron, Peter Jackson, Quentin Tarantino and Patty Jenkins to name but a few.
Two of the screenings (The Bourne Ultimatum and Mission Impossible: Fallout) will be available exclusively for EMPIRE subscribers and Picturehouse Members. Some of the screenings will also include introductions from EMPIRE writers and special guests.
The next screening is Do The Right Thing on Sunday 13 October. All tickets are £8, or £5 for EMPIRE subscribers and Picturehouse Members!
