Shaun of the Dead
11:30pm, Saturday 13 Oct (£9/£8for zombies)
To launch the 13th Hour Horror Festival 2012, Leicester Square Theatre and AlleyKat present a one off midnight screening of the cult classic film “Shaun of the Dead” to celebrate International Zombie Day 2012. World Zombie Day is an international annual event that grew from Pittsburgh’s first Zombie Walk at Monroeville Mall in 2006. The London event is now 7 years old and going strong. This year the last stop will be an exclusive screening of the cult classic film Shaun of the Dead. There will be an exclusive set by the steam punk band The Men Who Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing before the screening. Profits will be donated to St Mungo’s – helping homeless people since 1969.

Cigarette Burns present: Psycho v Psycho
9pm, 25 October (£15/12)
Hitchcock vs Van Sant. Anthony Perkins vs Vince Vaughn. Janet Leigh vs Anne Heche. Five screens, two films, one Motel. Taking advantage of the unique screening arrangements of the Leicester Square Theatre, for the first time ever Alfred Hitchcock’s 1960 classic PSYCHO will be shown simultaneously with Gus Van Sant’s much-maligned 1998 remake. This fascinating experiment provides a unique insight into the nature of directorial technique and the role of actors’ interpretation, while asking the question: can a story be told exactly the same way twice? Find out with us in October, while watching one of the best thrillers ever made on the big screen! Film critic and occasional Classicist, Anton Bitel will be introducing the screening.
