Friday 25th May – curated by The Princes Charles Cinema

We are pleased to offer you a cinema programme curated by The Prince Charles Cinema.

The cinema programme is offered free of charge with your festival ticket. The cinema exists on a first come, first served basis. If you really want to see a film, you may have to get there early – there is limited seating and we do not guarantee entry into any session. Please consider others when watching the films- if you want to talk, please talk outside. ATP reserves the right to not allow you into the cinema, or to eject you from the cinema at our discretion. Toilets in the cinema are for cinema patrons only. There is no smoking in the cinema. PLEASE turn your phone off!

We have asked our good friends at the Prince Charles Cinema to curate the film program on Friday night. The Prince Charles is a London institution and all ATP members receive a complimentary Prince Charles membership. Comments below by Paul Vickery of the Prince Charles Cinema.

About The Prince Charles Cinema:

“The Prince Charles Cinema is everything an independent movie theatre should be. For lovers of quality films, this is Mecca” – We know that sounds like some PR bumf we’ve written up to make us look good, but that quote ladies and gentlemen comes from none other than Mr. Quentin Tarantino. With such high praise placed upon us, we feel we have a duty to offer our customers the very best (and at times the best of the worst) that cinema has to offer. Be that Cult Double Bills, Classic & Vintage films, Late Night schlock fests or even Teen Movie all-nighters – we do it all, and we love what we do.
4:00pm-5:33pm – They Live
6:00pm-7:25pm – The Monster Squad
7:45pm-9:52pm – Se7en
10:00pm-11:24pm – The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

THEY LIVE (1988. Dir John Carpenter)

John Nada (Piper) is a struggling labourer who drifts into town and luckily scores a job at a construction site. Discovering a box of sunglasses, Nada swipes a pair and is shocked to find what he can see through them; billboards demand citizens ‘Eat’ or ‘Sleep’, TV shows spout orders at him and some people look rather less than human…

John Carpenter, Rowdy Roddy Piper, Aliens, OBEY, Subliminal Messaging, overly-long punch-ups… They Live has it all, and then some. We’ve screened this film at THE Prince Charles Cinema a couple of times and every time it draws the best audience, but is seemingly ignored by even the most ardent of Carpenter supporters. But we’ll continue to champion They Live for as long as the doors to the PCC are open. We feel it deserves to be mentioned in the same breath as the rest of John Carpenters work AND once you’ve WATCHed it, you’ll know why. It’s simply amazing and best served with a crowd so be sure not to miss THEY LIVE!
THE MONSTER SQUAD (1987. Dir Fred Dekker)

Count Dracula adjourns to Earth, accompanied by Frankenstein’s Monster, the Wolfman, the Mummy, and the Gillman. The uglies are in search of a powerful amulet that will grant them power to rule the world. Our heroes – the Monster Squad are the only ones daring to stand in their way.

Last year we set up a new ‘REintroducing…’ incentive, wherein we would set out to find those lost films of our youth which are no longer available to screen due to dissolving distributors, rights lapsing or even just lost 35mm prints. We had a ‘Wish List’ of titles we wanted to bring back and top of that list was THE MONSTER SQUAD. It took us the better part of 18 months, but after a world- wide search and countless phone-calls, emails and even faxes, in December of last year a 35mm print arrived at our building and we were proud to ‘REintroduce…’ The Monster Squad to a Sold Out UK audience. This film has now become part of the PCC’s history and we couldn’t programme a line-up without it.
SE7EN (1985. Dir David Fincher)

Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman star in this sinister and gripping mystery-thriller about a pair of homicide detectives who must solve a puzzling series of horrific murders based on the seven deadly sins – Gluttony, Greed, Sloth, Pride, Lust, Envy and Wrath.

Other than film, my biggest passion is music. Before being asked to curate this evenings cinematic entertainment I was already planning to attend I’LL BE YOUR MIRROR and take in my 7th Slayer show (a bit off topic, but I once dislocated my shoulder during their set at the old Astoria way back when), but as soon as ATP graciously invited me to pick some films I knew SE7EN had to be there… why? Well, when you’re as big a fan of Slayer as I am, for no reason at all you know that SE7EN is Kerry King’s favourite film and he is not a man you want to disappoint so it had to make the line-up.
THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE (1974. Dir Tobe Hooper)

First released to a shocked public in 1974, Tobe Hooper’s The Texas Chain Saw Massacre is a terrifyingly dark tale, based (very loosely) on factual events. This controversial, brilliantly atmospheric, occasionally darkly funny film tells of the tragedy that befalls a group of five teenagers one summer afternoon. A blueprint for a generation of film-makers and undiminished by time, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre is one of the purest horror movies ever made.

As with SE7EN, an inherent knowledge of all things SLAYER has influenced this pick too. Tom Araya’s fascination with serial killers led to his discovery of famed human skin-wearer, ED GEIN. And it just so happens that Ed Gein was the inspiration for Seasons In The Abyss track ‘DEAD SKIN MASK’ as well as TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE, making this the perfect connection between band and film.
