Upcoming changes at Broadway Cinema

Thank you to the thousands of Broadway customers who completed our annual audience survey in August.


Whilst we take the time to look through your comments, we thought we would share some of the headline results with you:

  • 98.4% of customers would recommend us
  • More customers now use our website to view our film programme than our printed brochure
  • 56.5% of survey respondents are unaware that Broadway is a registered charity
  • Customers are frustrated by the implied queuing system in our Cafebar


You may have heard that we’re planning on making some ambitious changes to Broadway over the coming year which will make the customer experience even better.

These changes include a redesign of our Cafebar and Mezz Bar, upgrading comfort levels in Screens 1, 3 and 4 (don’t worry, we’ll still be retaining that unique Paul Smith style in Screen 4) and introducing 4K projection and 7.1 surround sound in Screens 1 and 2.

Your honest and forthright feedback has confirmed much of our own thinking in regards to changes we can make to take Broadway forward, so we just want to take the time to say thank you.

Thank you for the record 194,492 tickets sold, the 82,864 pints of beer drank on your way into a film, the 47,442 cups of coffee grasped on a cold Silver Screen Thursday morning, the 18,171 pizzas ordered before settling in for the film quiz and the 9,382 slices of cake wolfed down from 9am until late.

Without your continued support and loyalty to Broadway, we would be just another cinema. With you behind us, we’re so much more.

Once our plans are finalised and the dates in 2019 are confirmed we will share these with you and ask for further input into their implementation.

Thank you again,

Steve Mapp
CEO, Broadway Cinema

Mayhem Film Festival reveals full line-up for 2018 edition

Mayhem Film Festival is proud to announce the full line-up for its 2018 edition, which will take place at Broadway, Nottingham on 11-14 October. The festival showcases the best features and short films in horror, sci-fi and cult cinema, through premieres, previews, and guested screenings each year.

Mayhem 2018 starts as it means to go on with Scottish zombie musical Anna and the Apocalypse, which opens the festival on Thursday 11 October, and will be followed by a Q&A with director John McPhail. Aislinn Clarke will present a screening of her found-footage chiller The Devil’s Doorway, set in one of Ireland’s notorious Magdalene asylums. Writer-director Marc Price (smash-hit zombie flick Colin) will also attend the festival to present his action-packed crime-thriller Nightshooters, where things get messy when a hapless film crew on a late-night shoot accidentally record a gangland execution.

Mayhem’s 14th edition will play host to no fewer than three UK Premieres, with exclusive first screenings of Nosipho Dumisa’s Cape Town-set Hitchcock homage Number 37, slow-burning science-fiction indie Prospect, and – as previously announced – Shinsuke Sato’s live-action manga adaptation Inuyashiki.

Already proving popular following last month’s announcement and certain to be festival highlights are Panos Cosmatos’ cosmic fever dream Mandy, starring a truly top-form Nicolas Cage, and Japanese box-office sensation One Cut of the Dead.

Delving into the archives, Mayhem is pleased to present a rare screening of Erik Blomberg’s strange and supernatural 1952 Finnish folktale, The White Reindeer, and the Dario Argento-produced 1985 cult classic Demons.

This year’s edition also includes screenings of horror anthologies Nightmare Cinema and The Field Guide to Evil – both previously announced – as well as preview screenings of Brazilian director Dennison Romalho’s macabre mortuary horror The Nightshifter, Nicolas Pesce’s darkly comic Piercing, starring Mia Wasikowska, the hilariously bad-taste splatterfest Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich, and haunted-house horror The Witch in the Window. Colin Minihan’s grueling survival thriller What Keeps You Alive will close the festival.

The ever-popular short film programme and Mayhem’s fiendish film quiz, The Flinterrogation - hosted by author David Flint - both return to round off this year’s line-up.

Early Bird passes will remain on sale at the discounted price of £65 until 10AM on Monday 10 September, at which time individual tickets, day passes and full festival passes – at the standard price of £75 – will be made available. For more information, please visit www.mayhemfilmfestival.com

Mayhem announces The Devil's Doorway, Mandy, What Keeps You Alive, One Cut of the Dead and Nightmare Cinema

As its 14th edition creeps ever closer, Mayhem Film Festival is proud to announce the next set of titles from this year's programme.

Mayhem is to present a screening of Aislinn Clarke's found-footage chiller The Devil's Doorway. In rural Ireland in 1960, two Catholic priests are sent from the Vatican to investigate reports of miraculous activity in a remote home for 'fallen women', only to discover that altogether darker forces may be at work. Mayhem is pleased to welcome director Aislinn Clarke to take part in a post-screening Q&A.

Showing in the festival's coveted Friday late-night slot, Nicolas Cage goes full... well, Nicolas Cage with a fantastically high-octane performance in Panos Cosmatos' cosmic revenge thriller Mandy. Pacific Northwest, 1983 AD. Outsiders Red Miller and Mandy Bloom lead a loving and peaceful existence. When their pine-scented haven is savagely destroyed by a cult led by the sadistic Jeremiah Sand, Red is catapulted into a phantasmagoric journey filled with bloody vengeance and laced with fire.

Next up in this year's programme is Colin Minihan's grueling survival thriller What Keeps You Alive. On the eve of their first wedding anniversary, Jules and Jackie become embroiled in a merciless fight for their lives against the most unexpected of adversaries - each other. As violence rains down upon their idyllic forest getaway, the women engage in a frenzied physical - and psychological - battle that tests the very limits of their instinct to survive.

Also screening at this year's festival is Shin'inchiro Ueda's unmissable micro-budget zombie movie, and Japanese box-office sensation, One Cut of The Dead. Playing to sell-out audiences since its release, the film has made more than 250 times its budget, and counting. During the making of a small-scale zombie flick, all hell breaks loose when a real zombie outbreak erupts on set - a gleeful horror-comedy packed with seriously entertaining monster mayhem and an epic 37-minute single-take opening.

Wrapping up this second wave of announcements, Mayhem presents Nightmare Cinema, a new horror anthology uniting masters of genre cinema - including Mick Garris (Sleepwalkers, Masters of Horror) and Joe Dante (Gremlins) - for five gruesome tales of terror featuring sinister surgeons, brain-spiders and killer nuns.

Mayhem's full line-up will be announced early September. Discounted Early Bird Passes are still available to purchase from www.mayhemfilmfestival.com

Mayhem Film Festival will take place at Broadway, Nottingham on 11 – 14 October 2018.

Win a copy of Smithereens and Sex, Lies and Videotape from the Criterion Collection

Two new titles from the Criterion Collection are launching this month and we have a copy of each – Smithereens and Sex, Lies and Videotape – to give away to one lucky winner.

For your chance to win, please send your full name and address to competition@broadway.org.uk.

Good luck!

SMITHEREENS

Susan Seidelman’s electrifying debut, a vivid dispatch from eighties New York and a benchmark for independent film.

Susan Seidelman established her distinctive vision of 1980s New York with this debut feature, the lo-fi original for her vibrant portraits of women reinventing themselves. After escaping New Jersey, the quintessentially punk Wren (Susan Berman)—a sparkplug in fishnets who lives dangerously downtown—moves to the city with the mission of becoming famous. When not pasting up flyers for herself or hanging at the Peppermint Lounge, she’s getting involved with Paul (Brad Rijn), the nicest guy to ever live in a van next to the highway, and Eric (Richard Hell), an aloof rocker. Shot on 16 mm film that captures the grit and glam of the setting, with an alternately moody and frenetic soundtrack by the Feelies and others, Smithereens—the first independent American film to compete for the Palme d’Or—is an unfaded snapshot of a bygone era.

DIRECTOR-APPROVED BLU-RAY SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES

· New 2K digital restoration, approved by director Susan Seidelman, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray Audio commentary from 2004 featuring Seidelman

  • New interviews with Seidelman and actor Susan Berman
  • And You Act Like One Too (1976) and Yours Truly, Andrea G. Stern (1979), two early shorts by Seidelman, with new introductions by the director

PLUS: An essay by critic Rebecca Bengal.

SEX, LIES AND VIDEOTAPE

Steven Soderbergh’s remarkably assured, disarmingly frank debut, a game-changer for American independent film.


With his provocative feature debut, twenty-six-year-old Steven Soderbergh trained his focus on the complexities of human intimacy and deception in the modern age. Housewife Ann (Andie MacDowell) feels distant from her lawyer husband, John (Peter Gallagher), who is sleeping with her sister (Pretty Woman’s Laura San Giacomo). When John’s old friend Graham (a magnetic, Cannes-award-winning James Spader) comes to town, Ann is drawn to the soft-spoken outsider, eventually uncovering his startling private obsession: videotaping women as they confess their deepest desires. A piercingly intelligent and flawlessly performed chamber piece, in which the video camera becomes a charged metaphor for the characters’ isolation, the Palme d’Or–winning sex, lies, and videotape changed the landscape of American film, helping pave the way for the thriving independent scene of the 1990s.

DIRECTOR-APPROVED BLU-RAY SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES

  • New, restored 4K digital transfer, supervised by director Steven Soderbergh, with 5.1 surround DTS‑HD Master Audio soundtrack
  • Audio commentary from 1998 featuring director Steven Soderbergh in conversation with filmmaker Neil LaBute
  • New programme by Soderbergh, featuring responses to questions sent in by fans
  • Interviews with Soderbergh from 1990 and 1992
  • New documentary about the making of the film featuring actors Peter Gallagher, Andie MacDowell, and Laura San Giacomo
  • New conversation with composer Cliff Martinez and supervising sound editor Larry Blake
  • Deleted scene with commentary by Soderbergh
  • Trailers

PLUS: An essay by critic Amy Taubin and excerpts from Soderbergh’s diaries written at the time of the film’s production.

Smithereens is released on Monday 27 August, and Sex, Lies and Videotape is out now – both are available to purchase from Fopp Stores.
