Haunter + The King and the MockingbirdThere will be a Special Preview screening of Haunter, the highly anticipated new film by Vincenzo Natali, Director of Cube and Splice. It’s 1985, and on the eve of Lisa’s 16thbirthday, she realises that she and her family appear to be reliving the same day over and over in this wonderfully dark and sinister thriller.

Studio Ghibli fans will want to catch a very rare screening of The King and the Mockingbird – a film that Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takahata have cited as a profound influence on their work. Widely considered to be one of the best animated features of all time, it is adapted from a fairy tale by Hans Christian Anderson about a tyrannical King ruling over the kingdom of Takicardia.
