This screening is part of Widescreen Monthly. From West Side Story to 2001: A Space Odyssey, widescreen films have been wowing film lovers since the 1950s, when the format was introduced to entice people back to the cinema after the invention of TV. Quickly picked up by filmmakers for its excellent visuals and cinematography, some of the best and well-known cult and classic films are in widescreen, giving the audience an immersive, exciting experience.

Come and rediscover the magic of widescreen cinema as we celebrate each month with a classic film screening.
