Kevin Costner: King Of America - A Perfect World (35mm)

Misc. Films and Badlands Collective join forces to present a 25th anniversary screening of A Perfect World, the first part of Kevin Costner: King of America, a mini-season dedicated to one of the titans of modern American cinema.

After a botched prison escape, convict Butch Haynes (Kevin Costner) finds himself on the run with a seven-year-old hostage (T.J. Lowther), pursued by Clint Eastwood’s grizzled Texas Ranger and a young criminologist played by Laura Dern. This brooding thriller set on the eve of the Kennedy assassination is the sole collaboration between Costner and Eastwood and widely regarded as among both star and director’s finest work. 

Kevin Costner: King of America continues with Bull Durham on 21st August at Regent Street Cinema.

Kevin Costner: King of America - Bull Durham (35mm)

Misc. Films and Badlands Collective join forces to present a 30th anniversary screening of Bull Durham, the second part of Kevin Costner: King of America, a mini-season dedicated to one of the titans of modern American cinema.

Kevin Costner plays minor-league catcher “Crash” Davis, competing for the affection of poetry-loving spiritual seeker and muse Annie Savoy (Susan Sarandon), alongside hotheaded greenhorn pitcher “Nuke” Laloosh (Tim Robbins). This piece of summer twilight Americana is one of the sexiest, funniest, most poignant examples of modern American cinema. 

Kevin Costner: King of America begins with A Perfect World on 7th August at The Prince Charles Cinema:

Misc. Films presents... Death Line at VAULT Festival

death-line-3.jpg

Venture beneath 1970s London for Gary Sherman’s cult-classic cannibals-on-the-tube horror

When two students discover a dying man in their local tube station, the ensuing investigation reveals a macabre plot that sends shivers down the spines of hardened police officers Calhoun (Donald Pleasence) and Rogers (Norman Rossington). What is the terrible secret of the capital’s underground system? And who – or what – is turning the London Underground into a Death Line…?

First released in 1972, Death Line (retitled Raw Meat in the States) was truly ahead of its time in its mixture of grisly thrills, gallows humour and sharp social commentary. Now, it is rightly heralded as a British horror classic, and is a favourite of such genre aficionados as Edgar Wright, Guillermo del Toro and Mark Gatiss. Don’t miss this rare big-screen outing, presented by Misc. Films in VAULT’s suitably shadowy, subterranean setting underneath Waterloo station. And, don’t forget… Mind the doors!
