Postponed: Bag your seat and popcorn at Northampton’s Cult Film Club

Date 11.03.2020


Fans of cult cinema are invited to join a band of fellow film fanatics at a monthly screening in Northampton.

Now in its sixth year, the Cult Film Club is a joint venture between the University of Northampton’s Film & Screen Studies department and Northampton Filmhouse.

Club members, who comprise students, University staff and the public, meet on the last Wednesday of every month for a screening at the Filmhouse.

February’s event involved both a showing of Robert Eggers’ award winning The Lighthouse (2019) and a discussion of the movie with Northampton film fans.

Hosted by Film & Screen Studies student, Ben Liptrott, and Lecturers Michael Starr and David Simmons, the discussion took in a wide range of topics including toxic masculinity, mermaids, and German Expressionism.

David said: “It is great to see the cult film club still going strong with students and the general public eager to share their enthusiasm for all things related to cinema.”

The next screening is Little Joe (2020) on Wednesday 25 March. Tickets can be purchased from the Filmhouse’s website.
