Double bill of cult classics

Atmospheric Dudley Castle will become the dramatic backdrop when we offer film fans a double bill of classic movies this summer.

Once again we’ve teamed up with Flatpack and, for the third year running, the courtyard of the 11th century Castle will be transformed into an open-air cinema.

But this year is doubly special, as we have two films over two nights as part of our Dudley Castle After Dark event.

Firstly, cited as one of the most influential horror films of all time, Night of the Living Dead will be screened on Friday August 3. Then on Saturday August 4, vampire flick The Lost Boys – which celebrated its 30th anniversary last year – will be shown.

Zoo Manager, Matt Lewis, said: “For the last two years our open-air cinema has been a huge hit so we’re delighted to be working with Flatpack again and putting on two films over two nights. There’s a bargain to be had if people want to join us for the double bill.

“Film goers need to bring a chair or a blanket to sit on and then can get comfy ready to watch the cult classics in an incredible atmosphere.”

Both films are a 15 certificate and doors open each evening at 7pm. Both nights will have warm-up films shown at 9pm and the feature presentation will kick off at 9.30pm.

There will be hot food, a licensed bar, mood lighting and special effects and, as always, a surprise or two thrown in for good measure!

Each full price ticket is £10 per film and the double bill ticket deal is £18, with concessions available.

Don’t forget to bring along a chair and/or a blanket.
The screenings will go ahead come rain or shine!
