Winter Gardens Film Festival Preview

The Winter Gardens Trust in association with Aunty Social is hosting a Film Festival preview day on Sunday 2nd November. The event will showcase and promote the development of a new black and white film festival for the town and the first film we’ll be showing is Metropolis, the 1927 sci-fi classic directed by Fritz Lang. 

Metropolis was first screened in Blackpool in the Winter Gardens Pavilion on Sunday 2nd October 1927. In keeping with this, we’ll also be featuring Donald McKenzie, resident organist at the Odeon Leicester Square on the Opera House’s mighty Wurlitzer organ playing the 1927 score which will make the event even more special.


The programme will also include an evening double bill of psychological and supernatural thrillers Rebecca (1940) and The Innocents (1961).


Tickets Prices:

Metropolis, 2pm – £6.00 
Double bill: Rebecca, the Innocents 6pm – £4.00 

Tickets available from the Opera House Box Office.
