Big Screen Classics

A brand new, revamped programme has launched at BFI Southbank, featuring a specially curated range of brand new film releases alongside Big Screen Classics.

Get in on the action, with a classic film playing every day for the special price of just £8. The refreshed programme combines big screen classics, specially curated seasons of film and television, vibrant live events and previews, and must-see new and retrospective releases.

New releases at BFI Southbank will range from award-winning World Cinema and new British films from home-grown talent, to the latest hotly anticipated films from both established and up and coming directors.

April’s selection of new releases comprises the Coen Brothers’ studio-era set Hollywood romp Hail, Caesar! (2016), Alice Winocour’s stylish psychological drama Disorder (2015), the Oscar-nominated Son of Saul (2015) – screening on 35mm as director László Nemes intends it to be seen – and Mark Cousins’ lyrical portrait of his hometown I Am Belfast (2015).

BFI Southbank’s brand new series Big Screen Classics will feature Chinatown (Roman Polanski, 1974), The Big Sleep (Howard Hawks, 1946), Hidden (Michael Haneke, 2005), Get Carter (Mike Hodges, 1971), The Big Lebowski (Joel Coen, 1998) and Jules et Jim (Francois Truffaut, 1962). There will also be dedicated film seasons including Shakespeare on Film, Alan Clarke, Agnieszka Holland and LOCO London Comedy Film Festival.
