The Cult Film Club, a joint venture between the University of Northampton’s Film and Screen Studies department and the Errol Flynn Filmhouse, starts its third season of movies this month.
Open to everyone, Cult Film Club features screenings of ‘cultish’ films, accompanied by a variety of additional events, including informative pre-movie talks and film-related discussions.
The season kicks off on Wednesday 23 September with a screening of the multiple award-winning documentary Mirage Men (2014), at the cinema in Northampton’s Cultural Quarter.
Described as ‘a brilliant piece of work’ by acclaimed director Adam Curtis, Mirage Men explores the murky but fascinating world of UFOs and the U.S. counter-intelligence programmes designed to hide the secrets behind them from the public.
For the first time, Mirage Men witnesses some of those behind these operations, and their victims, speak out, revealing a true story that is part Manchurian Candidate and part Close Encounters of the Third Kind.
The screening will be followed by an interview and Q and A session with writer Mark Pilkington hosted by Senior Lecturer David Simmons.
Tickets can be purchased at the box office.
