One of our favourites – we are super excited to announce the 4th film in our Outdoor Screening season – this brilliant 2014 New Zealand mockumentary horror comedy film, What We Do in the Shadows. Shown outside in the heart of Arnos Vale, a national Heritage site within 45 acres of Autumnal woodland.
What We Do In The Shadows, Kiwi filmmakers Taika Waititi (Eagle Vs Shark) and Jemaine Clement (the non-Muppet-songwriting half of Flight Of The Conchords) have made a brilliant connection: what are vampires if not the ultimate manchildren? They suggest that being undead must be the ultimate state of arrested development — it’s ‘living’ without aging, after all. So much so, their characters are not only permafrozen in immaturity, like neverending students, but also effectively fish out of their generational waters, as clueless about fashion as they are information technology .Empire Magazine

We’d love you to donate £1 with your ticket, or you might like to give your time as a volunteer or consider giving us a regular donation

What is the advantage of buying a deck chair ticket? The chair will already be in position and you’ll get a good view of the screen
Can I make a night of it and watch both films? Yes, you most definitely can! Please get your hand stamped on entry so that we know you have a ticket for both events
What should I wear? Bring layers and a raincoat/waterproofs. It will get cold, so hats, scarves, gloves and blankets are recommended.
I’ve changed my mind, can I get a refund? Unfortunately the tickets are non-refundable or transferable. As a charity we still face an annual shortfall in our finances and we rely on these events to keep us open for our community. As a small charity we don’t have the team capacity to manage the administration of refunding tickets effectively.
