However, one of our biggest chains, Vue, is eschewing this image of uncaring monolith to get back to its roots and give cineastes a real treat that even the smaller-screened art house theatres would struggle to provide. Throughout April, Ma,y and June, Vue is putting on a veritable feast of cinematic treats as part of their Back In Vue season.
The seven cult classics being screened are: Little Shop of Horrors, Evil Dead (aptly chosen with the remake currently occupying screens across the country), Labyrinth, Stand by Me, Bonnie and Clyde, Trainspotting, and A Clockwork Orange. If that doesn’t whet your appetite, the final week will be put to audience vote between Anchorman, Enter The Dragon, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Robocop, and The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, so be sure to vote for your favourite! This is a rare opportunity to see some beloved movie milestones as they were meant to be seen.
The Back In Vue season is on at 25 different Vue cinemas around the country, with each film showing twice in a week.
