Where is the Nomad showing Labyrinth (U)
Date:
15 Aug 2015
Time:
19:00 - 23:00
Location:
Queen's Park
Cost:
£6.75 - £28.50

A blend of Alice In Wonderland and Wizard of Oz with unmistakeably spunky Henson puppetry (this was the last film he directed before his death), Labyrinth has achieved the status of cult nostalgia for a generation of a certain age – the film was a box office flop at the time, struggling to recoup half of its then massive $25m budget. But like all great cult films of the 80s, it has slow-burned its way into popular affection, helped in no small part by Trevor Jones’ score, the surreal touches introduced to the script by Monty Python’s Terry Jones, and of course David Bowie’s Goblin King Jareth. Also featuring an early performance by a very lovely, very young Jennifer Connelly as the baby-rescuing heroine. Come indulge yourself, or introduce a new generation to what family films were like before 3D and CGI.

Where is the Nomad showing The Princess Bride (PG)
Date:
22 Aug 2015
Time:
19:00 - 22:30
Location:
Queen's Park
Cost:
£6.75 - £28.50

Return to a time when men were men and swamps were swamps - fire swamps, that is - full of quicksand and rodents of unusual size and where lagoons were inhabited by shrieking eels and the most beautiful woman in the world was named... Buttercup? A delightfully postmodern fairy tale, The Princess Bride is a deft, intelligent mix of swashbuckling, romance and comedy that takes an age-old damsel-in-distress story and makes it fresh. Starring Robin Wright and Cary Elwes, directed by Rob Reiner, this is an enchanting classic the whole family will love.
