The Elephant Man (12A) – 1980, UK, 94 mins
Director: David Lynch
Gloriously restored in stunning black & white images this 40th anniversary re-release of the multi-award winning 2nd feature from David Lynch must be appreciated on the big screen.
Starring Anthony Hopkins and John Hurt, THE ELEPHANT MAN is an extraordinary and intensely moving true story of bravery and humanity. John Merrick (John Hurt) is The Elephant Man, forced into circus sideshows and spurned by society because of the disfiguring disabilities he was born with. Rescued by a well meaning surgeon (Anthony Hopkins), he tries to escape a life of prejudice and cruelty as he tries to fit into a world ruled by Victorian sensibilities. Beautifully shot in black and white by the incomparable Freddie Francis, THE ELEPHANT MAN is an unforgettable story of human dignity and survival.
Doors open for all manner of drinks at 2.00pm. Film at 3.00pm.
