Movies break the mould at Cinema Nova

Subversive, underground, cult gems will be screening every Friday night throughout this new cinema series. Jumping from spaghetti western to blaxploitation, punk rock science fiction to grindhouse fare, film critic Zak Hepburn has curated an outlandish programme. Each session will kick off with a tailored introduction to set the scene, followed by custom madcap reel, which will feature retro advertisements, trailers and other interstitial clips. Films are screened at 9.45pm every Friday and the programme is as follows – check Cinema Nova for more details.
