Dates, Locations & Tickets
SCARY MOVIE | March 1
Fans of goofy cinema, rejoice – the original (and best!!) 21st Century parody film is coming back to the big screen, March 1st. Defying the very notion of good taste, Scary Movie holds no bars as it unleashes a vicious assault on the most popular films of the ’90s, deconstructs teen movie clichés and satirises the era’s biggest memes. With an excellent joke-to-minute ratio and a carefree attitude towards the filmic craft, this is sure to be one of the most entertaining times you’ll have in the cinema all year.
I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER | March 8
On March 8th, witness the birth of the “hook-handed man” trope. I Know What You Did Last Summer brings together a cast of ’90s darlings – including Jennifer Love Hewitt, Freddie Prinze Jr., Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ryan Phillipe, Johnny Galecki and Anne Heche – as they attempt to survive the attacks of an unknown assailant, connected to a drunken night of partying the summer prior. Coming hot on the heels of Scream (writer Kevin Williamson’s prior project), this is a slice of ’90s slasher revival goodness, replete with the genre’s grandest excesses.
URBAN LEGEND | March 15
Jared Leto, Tara Reid, Michael Rosenbaum and Alicia Witt lead an ensemble cast of ’90s linchpins, as they are systematically picked off in scenarios resembling old wives’ tales, in the 1998’s smash hit, Urban Legend. Screening March 15th, relive all your favourite tall tales as this slasher carves through the popular folklore of yesteryear, including “the killer in the back seat”, “the hatchet man”, “the ankle slasher under the car” and “the pop rocks and soda” myths as this group of college students attempt to uncover who’s killing them off, one-by-one.
DEEP BLUE SEA | March 22
Before The Meg, before Sharknado, before Mega Shark Versus Giant Octopus, there was Deep Blue Sea, the original big-budget bite into CGI shark terror screening March 22nd in celebration of its 20th anniversary. A frenzy of ultra-intelligent sharks lead an all-star cast featuring Samuel L. Jackson at his hammiest, as the team of scientists fight for survival in a flooded underground research facility, filled with a slew of genetically engineered, teed off mako sharks.
THE CRAFT | March 29
To close out the season, we’re bringing some girl-power to Palace Central on March 29th, in the form of the best coven-focused film ever to grace cinema screens, The Craft. The film follows four teens as they get in touch with their witchy side, going mad with power as their Wiccan abilities strengthen. A mid-’90s masterpiece, The Craft is elevated by an incredible cast including Neve Campbell, Robin Tunney, Rachel True, Skeet Ulrich and a phenomenal break-out performance from real-life witch Fairuza Balk.
