Tickets are now on sale for September

Tickets have gone on sale for September’s programme of movies at the Errol Flynn Filmhouse in Northampton.

Among the highlights is the much-anticipated sequel to stylish graphic novel-like Sin City starring Lady Gaga.

The cream of new world cinema is also coming to Northampton includes the Dardenne Brothers’ latest movie, Two Days, One Night, while classics range from 1930s German thriller M to John Waters’ 1981 black comedy Polyester.

September also sees more live broadcasts and special events, the return of the Cult Film Club with Eyes Without A Face, and the Awards Ceremonies for the Film Northants Festival 2014.

Other picks include Robin Wright playing a version of herself in a futuristic Hollywood in The Congress, an innovative blend of live action and animation, where the actress is ‘sampled’ by film studio Miramount for unlimited future use.

Surrealist French romance Mood Indigo also strays into the realms of fantasy, with Amelie star Audrey Tatou as a woman plagued by a water lily growing in her lungs.

And continuing the cinema’s strand of top documentary features, Finding Vivian Maier, EFF says, is a “fascinating look at the previously unknown nanny who has earned a posthumous reputation as one of America’s most accomplished and insightful street photographers”.

There is a bumper crop of classic films on offer this Autumn, with a particular highlight being John Waters’ black comedy Polyester from 1981, starring drag queen Divine as a tormented suburban housewife.

This screening, in association with Scalarama comes complete with authentic Odorama Scratch ‘n’ Sniff cards to use at key points in the film.

The next classic war film will be Stanley Kubrick’s 1957 Paths Of Glory, starring Kirk Douglas as a colonel, defending his men from the firing squad after they refuse to continue against an impossible attack.

And from 1978, The Deer Hunter explores the affects of the Vietnam War on a trio of Russian American steelworkers, played by Robert De Niro, Christopher Walken and John Savage.
