A new film festival is coming to Tallaght’s RUA RED arts centre this week, called REWIND. The opening event takes place on November 5th at 7pm and is a musical and visual homage to John Carpenter, pairing live musical performances, light installations and film.
In the tradition of classic repertory cinema, the arts centre will present a series of iconic movies specifically chosen by curator Matthew Nolan, to promote discussion around what it is to be a film spectator in 2015.
The specially chosen movies include:
- The Thing from Another World – classic 1950s cold war horror (Nov 5th, 9pm)
- Akira – the great cyberpunk thriller and anime classic. (Nov 7th, 8.30pm)
- Godzilla – the mother and father of all monster movies. (Nov 7th, 10.30am)
- Tron – one of the first to truly address our place in the digital age. (Nov 7th, 3pm)
- Sleeper – Woody Allen’s classic take on what the future holds. (Nov 6th, 8.30pm)
- THX 1138 – George Lucas’s real Sci-Fi classic! (Nov 6th, 3pm)
All of these movies address the issue of identity in a technological age, with REWIND promising to be a silver screen celebration and an audio visual feast for the senses. REWIND will explore the way we view the present, and even the future, by learning from the past, and offers cinephiles a chance to view all these iconic films in the spectacular surroundings of RUA RED’s double vaulted white cubed galleries, unleashing a new experience for all the senses.
All events cost €5 or €3 concession, with a three day pass available for €25. For more information, click here.
