Fright Night Double Bill at The Picture House

The Shining and Candyman
Saturday, 10 December, 6.30pm

Monday, 5 December 2022

Since October, Hebden Bridge Picture House has been part of a major BFI UK-wide film and events programme, In Dreams Are Monsters, which has enabled the venue to present significant and iconic films in the horror genre on the big screen.

Supported by National Lottery, BFI Film Audience Network and the ICO the single screen cinema has presented double blll horror screenings to their monthly Fright Night audience and beyond. These included Evil Dead, Ganja & Hess, Pet Sematary and The Lost Boys.

Picture House Marketing Officer Lisa Murdoch said, "Christmas has come early for all the horror cinephiles out there. Our final Fright Night double bill screening includes The Shining, widely regarded as the most influential horror film of all time.

"Master filmmaker Stanley Kubrick's visually haunting chiller, based on the bestseller by Stephen King, is an undeniable masterpiece of modern horror. To watch it on the big screen in our historic 101 year old cinema will be something very special. Perhaps you'll even see the Grady Twins in the building too…"

The double bill season closes at Hebden Bridge Picture House, Saturday 10 December at 6.30pm with a two for one horror screening (with interval) of The Shining plus Bernard Rose's original Candyman (1992).
Adapted from Clive Barker's story The Forbidden from Books of Blood, Bernard Rose's Candyman is a terrifying tale of a vengeful, hook-handed spirit that haunts the city of Chicago. Much like the legend of the Candyman itself, the story of the film has grown in the years that have followed – with a narrative exploring race and society – now feeling more relevant than ever before.

Lisa continues, "If you've always wanted to see these impressive films on the big screen, but have never had the opportunity, now's your chance. You can enjoy two horrors for the price of one and there will be the opportunity to win Fright Night t-shirts on the night."

The screenings are rated 15. Aged 16 – 25? Tickets are £5 and are available from HBPH.co.uk.
