Outdoor screening of iconic Hammer horror film set in Weymouth + Portland

Black leather, black leather, Smash smash smash, Black leather, black leather, Crash crash crash...

An iconic 1962 Hammer horror film set and filmed in Weymouth and Portland starring Shirley Ann Field and a young and superbly glowering Oliver Reed. Like many Hammer horror films it deals with outsiders who find themselves enmeshed in the peculiar goings-on in a strange place.

However, this predictable genre is turned on its head, in this case by transforming what at first seems an odd but basically conventional thriller into a movie about the fear of nuclear destruction, distrust of government, the inhumanity of scientific research, existential angst and the social disintegration of the modern world - don’t miss!

Bar with food and hot and cold drinks.
