Film School at the Cinema Museum: Dead of Night (1945)

Dead of Night (1945)

After an extended hiatus, we’re delighted to announce the return of Film School to Time Out’s Most Loved Local Culture Spot 2018, The Cinema Museum!

To do this atmospheric space justice, we’re screening the great Ealing horror – DEAD OF NIGHT (1945) and discussing it in relation to genre theory. This film changed horror forever by introducing a new kind of monster – psychological trauma – and portraying it with real narrative sophistication. In our talk and post-screening discussion, we’ll learn about the importance of familiarity and difference to genres, and consider how they evolve to reflect the hopes and fears of contemporary society.
