Join us for a special event to mark the 50th anniversary of this iconic British horror film.

When a young girl mysteriously disappears, Police Sergeant Howie travels to a remote Scottish island to investigate. But this pastoral community, led by the strange Lord Summerisle, is not what it seems, and the devoutly religious detective soon uncovers a secret society of wanton lust and pagan blasphemy.

Screening in 4K

Before the film, a one-hour recorded event will be screened:

The Wicker Man 50th Anniversary Event is a star-studded on-stage celebration of the film, its undisputed status as a cult classic and perhaps the best British horror film ever made. Presented by Edith Bowman, the on-stage show will include guest of honour, actress Britt Ekland, chief film critic from The Independent, Clarisse Loughrey, associate musical director from the film Gary Carpenter, Dominic and Justin Hardy – sons of the director Robin Hardy, who are currently making a documentary about their father’s experience with the film, and superfan of The Wicker Man: acclaimed writer/actor Reece Shearsmith.

There will also be an exclusive musical performance by Broadside Hacks, covering four tracks from the iconic soundtrack.

Please note: The film will be screened after the recorded event.
