In collaboration with Reel Steel Cinema we’re presenting a Hammer Horror Weekender & Cinema Poster Exhibition, as part of the BFI In Dreams Are Monsters season. Featuring classic film titles and rare original cinema release posters.

Presenting a series of standout titles from a period in cinema where British horror changed the shape of the genre, these screenings will take place alongside a special cinema poster exhibition at the Abbeydale Picture House – featuring original cinema release quad posters from a private collection (gathered since the 1960s) – with rare original film posters from across Hammer and the wider horror genre, displaying the standout key artwork created in promotion of these titles, exhibiting this period in which the horror genre dominated cinema.

Featuring two evening double-bill screenings (each from 6pm) across the weekend:

Saturday November 19th

The Plague of the Zombies (1966)
The Devil Rides Out (1968)

Sunday November 20th

The Gorgon (1964)
Dracula: Prince of Darkness (1966)

The exhibition will run 12pm-4pm each day (free entry).
