Band on the Wall’s February Film Festival is back from 7th February, with 8 outstanding films, handpicked for their killer soundtracks!
We kick things off with Robin Hardy’s 1973 mystery horror The Wicker Man on Tuesday 7th February, before screening Quentin Tarantino’s iconic black comedy with an all-star cast, Pulp Fiction on Thursday 9th February.
Next up, on Valentine’s Day, a film based around music with a truly stellar soundtrack – High Fidelity, before Prince’s extravagant musical drama that inspired the iconic soundtrack and studio album of the same name – Purple Rain on Monday 20th February.
Get down for Super Fly on Tuesday 21st, the 1972 blaxploitation motion picture and one of the few films ever to have been outgrossed by its soundtrack, a seminal piece of work by soul musician Curtis Mayfield. Our most recent feature comes in the shape of Ryan Gosling-led, Drive, a neo-noir film that’s both mysterious and slick in equal measure (Wednesday 22nd).
Sunday 26th sees our penultimate screening, 1986 American coming-of-age drama Stand By Me, based on Stephen King’s thrilling novella ‘The Body’. Then, on Tuesday 28th, crime meets comedy with The Blues Brothers.
We’ve pulled together the classic soundtracks to these films and put them in a Spotify playlist for you to enjoy*. Plus you can watch the trailers for each film by clicking the film titles on the left.
Tickets are priced at £3 per film and are available online and on the door.
