Abertoir returns in style for its eleventh year, celebrating the rise and fall of New York’s infamous 42nd Street. No, the festival hasn’t gone all Busby Berkley – the 42nd Street being celebrated this November is that of the Rialto, the Apollo, the Liberty, the ANCO, and many more of the world’s most famous grindhouses. The colourful history of 42nd Street and its iconic cinemas will be celebrated with screenings, special guests and some patented Abertoir-brand silliness!
We’ll also be marking 20th years since the death of Lucio Fulci, with a very special screening of The Beyond. We’re welcoming back world-renowned composer Fabio Frizzi and his band to perform a new re-interpretation of his own score, live against the film itself!
Keep your eye on our website for more news as we gradually unveil our usual line-up of brand new horror films from all over the world, more special guests, talks, theatre, live music and the ever-entertaining pub quiz!
