The Matrix

Sun 15 September @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

- £3 – £5

Dirs: Lilly and Lana Wachowski, USA, 1999, 136 mins, Cert: 15Sun 15 September // 19:00

Tickets: £5 (full) / £4 (concession) / £3 (for World on Wire ticket holders)

A spectacular surprise when it arrived in cinemas seemingly out of nowhere back in 1999, directors Lana and Lilly Wachowski’s game changing blockbuster is a thrilling action-filled ride, a special effects revolution and a provocative trip across multiple plains of being and consciousness.

Keanu Reeves’s cubicle drone/hacker “Neo” gets a rude awakening, discovering that the real world he knows is a shared hallucination and that humankind are being harvested for bioelectricity by their machine overlords. A watershed movie, not only for the popularization of Hong Kong “wire fu” fighting techniques imported by choreographer Yuen Woo-ping, but for the flexible red pill and blue pill metaphor it introduced, adopted by paranoiacs of all political affiliations.

Tickets for this screening are just £3 for those who also come along to our 2pm screening of Fassbinder’s 1973 exploration of simulated realities WORLD ON A WIRE
