The Wicker Man (15)

Friday 23rd June 2023 - Wednesday 28th June 2023

Dir. Robin Hardy, UK, 1973, 94 mins. Cast. Edward Woodward, Christopher Lee, Brit Ekland.

In the 50 years since its original release, The Wicker Man has achieved true cult status as one of the most revered horror films in cinema history, despite a difficult production and heavily cut original theatrical release. The search for the fabled missing scenes has only added to the myth surrounding a film that still inspires filmmakers to this day.

Telling the chilling story of a puritan Police Sergeant who arrives on a remote Scottish Island in search of a missing girl only to find the Pagan locals claiming she never existed, The Wicker Man is also much celebrated for its soundtrack, featuring haunting reworkings of traditional British folk songs.

This restored 4K version of the 2011 Final Cut of the film is released to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the original.

The screening on Friday 23 June will be introduced by Johnny Mains, award-winning editor, author and genre film historian. His latest book is Celtic Weird and he writes extensive film liner notes for Arrow and the British Film Institute.
