Cancelled - Film: The Red Shoes

Michael Powell, Emeric Pressburger, 1948 (U)

This season, our film programme, The Screen at Contemporary presents 24 Frames: the films and influences of Martin Scorsese.

A young ballerina is torn between her career and marriage. Part romantic fantasy, part dark psychological fever dream, Scorsese said that this is the film that “plays in his heart”. Shot in sumptuous technicolour, this is one you need to see on the big screen – where it belongs.

Paired with Raging Bull, both films explore obsessive characters who sacrifice their bodies for art. We will be screening Raging Bull Wed 18 Mar, 6.30pm.

£5 per ticket, or any five tickets for £20
