In this year of celebration of all things British, STUDIOCANAL and the ICO are delighted to announce a summer season of theatrical screenings in celebration of some of the finest, most entertaining and quirkiest cinema that this sceptred isle has ever produced and more importantly for LoveHorror it includes two horror classics THE PLAGUE OF THE ZOMBIES & QUATERMASS & THE PIT.
The MADE IN BRITAIN season is (cucumber) sandwiched between the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the Olympics and will give audiences across the country the opportunity to enjoy five restored classic British films on the big screen. A national screening event every Tuesday from June 5th to July 3rd inclusive will see each film screen digitally in cinemas across the country.
The five films have been chosen to illustrate the breadth of the work that has been produced by British filmmakers over the last century, and range from post-war comedy to ground-breaking sci-fi.
