What are the timings for the night?
The first film, The Fog, will be starting shortly after 5pm following a brief introduction. There will be a 15 min break between each film so you can refresh your drinks at the bar to steady your nerves.

These are the approximate timings for the night:

  • 5.10pm: The Fog (followed by a 15 min break)
  • 7.00pm: The Thing (followed by a 15 min break)
  • 9.00pm: Halloween (ending just before 11pm)

Why these films? Why not Prince of Darkness? Or They Live? Or (insert name of your other favourite John Carpenter films).
For Halloween, we wanted to screen arguably John Carpenter’s most iconic horror films and so that’s why we picked these films. Also, a lot of the others are on Amazon Prime or Netflix…

Can I leave and come back at any time?
Your ticket allows to come and go as you wish, but honestly, why would you want to leave?!

Can I bring food into the Winston Theatre?
Snacks are permitted to be bought into the Winston Theatre.

The Student Union’s Balloon Bar will be open to those who want to get a drink between or during films. Please do not bring alcoholic drinks into the theatre that have not been purchased on site.
