  1. Each set in the year 2019, a sci-fi double-bill screening featuring two classics of the genre - Blade Runner (1982), and The Running Man (1987), will take place at Sheffield's historic Abbeydale Picture House. Unquestionably one of the greatest and most influential films of all time, Blade Runner takes on a whole new dimension this year - with director Ridley Scott's sci-fi classic being set in November 2019. In the 21st-century, Blade Runner's are assigned to hunt down and eliminate "replicants" - genetically engineered humanoids. Detective Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) hunts for fugitive replicants, and while tracking down a replicant group who escaped from an off-world colony to Earth, he finds himself drawn to a mysterious woman, whose secrets may undermine his very soul. A visually spectacular and stylish science fiction thriller, Blade Runner is one of cinema's most powerful and enduring films. We then tune in to witness a game of life and death on the highest rated Television Show in history - The Running Man. In the year 2019, an innocent man accused of a crime has a choice - Hard Time, or Prime Time. He must pay, or play for the prize - his life, in a game of survival against brutal "stalkers", broadcast live to a national audience. In a world obsessed with reality TV, where politics and entertainment are intertwined, The Running Man is a game where the rules are about to change... starring Arnold Schwarzenegger in one of his most iconic roles. Hosted at Sheffield's historic Abbeydale Picture House - a Grade II listed 1920's Picture Palace Cinema, bringing the sense of occasion to match two of cinema's sci-fi classics. Saturday November 2nd £9 Doors open - 6pm Blade Runner (The Final Cut) starts - 7pm 9pm - interval The Running Man starts - 9:30pm Age 18+ only.

  2. This August Bank Holiday Monday will see a rare screening of one of the most iconic and influential films of all time take place at Sheffield's historic Abbeydale Picture House - Star Wars. Released in 1977, the global impact of Star Wars (Episode IV - A New Hope) was something that not just cinema but the world had never seen. We join a period of civil war... Rebel spaceships, striking from a hidden base, have won their first victory against the evil Galactic Empire. During the battle, Rebel spies managed to steal secret plans to the Empire's ultimate weapon - the DEATH STAR - an armored space station with enough power to destroy an entire planet. The Emperor's most trusted servant, Darth Vader, must find the plans, and locate the hidden Rebel base. Princess Leia, a captive Rebel leader and custodian of the stolen plans, sends out a distress call that can save her people and restore freedom to the galaxy. Luke Skywalker, guided by Obi-Wan Kenobi rise to the call and aid the Rebellion to overthrow the Empire and bring balance back to the force. An unforgettable adventure across the galaxy, Star Wars became a worldwide cultural phenomenon that literally changed the future of the adventure movie genre. With a cast of iconic characters including Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker, Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia, and Harrison Ford as Han Solo, Star Wars is one of the greatest and most beloved science-fiction films of all time. Come and see where it all began...

  10. ahead of our screening event this bank holiday weekend, we take a look at why The Thing and Big Trouble In Little China became cult movie classics in our feature review - https://reelsteelsheffield.wordpress.com/2017/08/13/the-thing-and-big-trouble-in-little-china/ this will be a rare chance to catch these films on the big screen, make sure you don't miss out...
  11. 8/10 for me on that one, a harrowing story but great overall with amazing performances. Dunkirk - 9/10 some mixed opinions on it from the look of things, but I thought it was brilliant. It's not a war film as such, but a suspense movie - it doesn't spend time on the actual conflict but is centred around a handful of people and there experiences during the evacuation. The soundtrack is incredible, haven't seen anything for a while where the film score played such a key part in the film - I think it would be down to screening issues if the volume was so load it was uncomfortable. Baby Driver - 6/10 surprised it has been marked as 'film of the year' by so many across the internet, I couldn't help but see it as a diet version of the film Drive - a getaway driver with a love interest, things ultimately go wrong in a shower of violence, but it's weird when some of the car chase sequences are so well choreographed that they don't feel very exciting. Also found the way music was used got a bit tiresome.
  12. most recently, the soundtrack to Dunkirk is incredible... haven't seen anything for a while where the soundtrack played such a key part in the film. Baby Driver has a good soundtrack too, although it is more like a 'greatest hits' playlist
  13. The movie partnership of legendary horror film director John Carpenter and Hollywood favourite Kurt Russell produced several films through the 1980's and 90's, we're celebrating this movie duo with a back-to-back screening of a pair of films holding a cult status only matched by their levels of danger from another world - The Thing, and Big Trouble In Little China. 2017 marks the 35th anniversary of John Carpenter's The Thing - set in the winter of 1982, a twelve man research team at a remote Antarctic research station discover alien life buried in the snow. Soon unfrozen, the form changing alien takes host of members of the team, picking them off one by one, in a bid to survive and escape. With ever-increasing tension, iconic special effects, and a superb score from Oscar winning soundtrack legend Ennio Morricone, The Thing is a landmark sci-fi horror. The Thing original trailer - Then to round off the evening, we head to the streets of San Francisco's Chinatown, for a film which the director John Carpenter described as an "action adventure comedy kung fu ghost story monster movie" - Big Trouble In Little China. Jack Burton (Kurt Russell) is a loud-mouthed truck driver who finds himself caught up in a supernatural conflict, when his friend's girlfriend is kidnapped to be married to a 2000 year old evil spirit named Lo Pan, who intends to break his curse and gain a new physical body. Jack goes to the rescue - cue martial arts, bullets, monsters and one-liners, as he battles to save the world from evil, and hopefully get his truck back...
