the perfect opportunity to catch up on all those films you really should have experienced up there on the big screen where they belong
(PRWEB) March 9, 2011
Actor Jonathan Pryce (‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ trilogy, ‘Tomorrow Never Dies’ and ‘Evita’) will present the second of Time Out Film Club’s season of great British films, the uncut version of Terry Gilliam's futuristic fever-dream 'Brazil', which stars Pryce.
Time Out Film Club’s screening will take place at the Cineworld Haymarket in London on March 29th where Pryce will host an exclusive one-off, screening of this iconic movie.
This will be Time Out Film Club’s second of 10 screenings of films from Time Out’s 100 Best British Films, as recently chosen by 150 film industry experts. These rare cinema screenings are open to the public with tickets costing just £12, around the same price as a regular West End cinema ticket. Each screening will feature introductions from leading members of the British cinema world.
Tim Arthur, Director of Time Out Live, comments “The season offers people of London the chance to see some of the greatest British films ever made, presented by some of the film world’s most influential voices. A movie aficionado’s dream and the perfect opportunity to catch up on all those films you really should have experienced up there on the big screen where they belong.”
Last month, a panel of film experts including Sam Mendes (Director of American Beauty) and Wes Anderson (Director of Fantastic Mr Fox) selected ‘Brazil’ as one of the Time Out's 100 Best British Films.
On its initial release in 1985, 'Brazil' became a cause célèbre in the battle between art and commerce when Universal studios tried to release a cut version on American screens. Time Out will of course be showing Gilliam's full, unexpurgated version, with terrorist bombings, dissolving grannies, psychotic ex-Pythons and furious De Niros.
Tickets for this uncut screening of ‘Brazil’ introduced by Jonathan Pryce are on sale now, with limited seats still available at http://timeout.com/filmclub.
A list of Time Out’s 100 Best British Movies is hosted on the Time Out website and has proved incredibly popular, attracting over half a million visitors in the first four days of going live.
