The event of the autumn, this is part of our new Immersive cinema strand that is intended to bring the film experience leaping off the screen with a host of added extras going on throughout the building – arrive when doors open for the full experience!
The Creative Worlds of Powell and Pressburger is a major BFI UK-wide film celebration of one of the greatest and most enduring filmmaking partnerships in the history of cinema which the Curzon is honoured to be part of with this Immersive screening. If you haven’t encountered The Tales Of Hoffmann before then you are in for a visual and aural treat, a technicolour feast that was ahead of its time and is hailed as the best cinema feature of an opera ever made.
Phantasmagorical visions of a poet’s three great and surreal love stories leap off the screen in the most flamboyant and expressively sumptuous mix of choreography and set production that you are ever likely to see on screen.
This immersive screening has been made possible by funding from BFI FAN and you can expect the full off-the-screen experience as well as on-screen: from live dancers to dress-up, come in your finest and let professional stylists add to your ensemble while you’re serenaded (all extras are included in the ticket price). This is going to be the pre-Christmas event of the year for any lovers of cinema, theatre, opera or dance and most definitely a night to remember.
Watch the trailer and browse the stills below to get some dress-up ideas because we would love you to go all-out for this one and join us in your best colour-saturated theatrical-opera style threads.
