Having kickstarted the season with the very popular It's Such a Beautiful day, we continue this special run of films with Danger: Diabolik (1968) on Wednesday 27th September

Then still to follow:
 4th Oct - 'Profondo Rosso' (1975) + live music from Monzen Nakacho
11th Oct - 'Bagdad Cafe' (1987)



Danger: Diabolik is a 1968 action film directed and co-written by Mario Bava, based on the Italian comic series Diabolik by Angela and Luciana Giussani. The film is about a criminal called Diabolik (John Phillip Law), who plans large-scale heists for his girlfriend Eva Kant (Marisa Mell). Diabolik is pursued by Inspector Ginko (Michel Piccoli), who blackmails the gangster Ralph Valmont (Adolfo Celi) into catching Diabolik for him.

Video Librarian noted that the film was "guaranteed to delight viewers whose tastes run to the outrĂ©", praising Ennio Morricone's score, Law and Mell's acting, and noting that the "real star is Bava" stating that "the film is colorful almost to the point of garishness." Bava's use of rich color, giving brilliantly artificial-looking compositions, makes the film look like the cinematic equivalent of comic book art.  



To finish our celebrations we have the already-announced FREE event, screening Stanley Kubrick's masterpiece '2001: A Space Odyssey'. More info and how to get tickets here: https://www.facebook.com/events/107387773313344/
