The Exorcist – Director’s Cut (18)
Thursday 1 November 7.30pm

Even after 45 years, William Friedkin’s pitch black and unrelenting fable of urbane evil still has the power to shock and horrify. With 11 added minutes over the original theatrical cut and improved sound and picture mastering, this is Friedkin’s and writer William Peter Blatty’s complete and unadulterated vision. Dare to walk home alone.

Starring Linda Blair, Max Von Sydow, Ellen Burstyn
