Leeds Young Film Festival 2015 has announced a tremendous new addition to its programme for The Film House (3-6 April, Leeds Town Hall). A real-life Batmobile film car from Tim Burton’s 1989 film will be on display, joining The DeLorean from Back to the Future to celebrate some of the most remarkable car designs in cinema history. The dark, majestic Batmobile is one of the most iconic Batman props and comes from the version of the film featuring Michael Keaton (star of the Oscar-winning Birdman), Jack Nicholson and Kim Basinger. The full-scale replica Batmobile film car will be on display at The Film House over Easter Weekend as part of the UK’s largest family film attraction, which also features live cinema, actives and events, and offers a whole day of cinema magic for the whole family.
Leeds International Film Festival is delighted to present an evening programme as part of The Film House with anniversary screenings of family classics Back to the Future (with a real-life Back to the Future DeLorean car on display) * and The Sound of Music, a special presentation of the new digital print of Blade Runner: The Final Cut, and the return of cult favourite Labyrinth. The screening of Labyrinth will include ‘Exploring the Labyrinth’, a short introduction to Trevor Jones’s music for the film through materials from the recording process guided by a team from the University of Leeds – see www.trevorjonesfilm.leeds.ac.uk for full details of the Trevor Jones project.
Tickets for The Film House are available from just £6.50 per person, and an all-inclusive** Family Pass is available for the special Early Bird price of £25, giving access to up to 4 people (including up to 2 adults).
