 Oscar-winning film to be screened during festival


Lifestyle | Article

Peterborough Festival in partnership with Peterborough Film Society have organised an exclusive screening of the three-times academy award-winning film Pan’s Labyrinth at the John Clare Theatre on Thursday 5 July at 7.30 pm.

Filmmaker Guillermo del Toro has produced a unique epic with Pan’s Labyrinth, his sixth and most ambitious film - a gothic fairy tale set against the post-war repression of Franco’s Spain.

Pan's Labyrinth


Harnessing the formal characteristics of classic folklore to a 20th century landscape, del Toro delivers a timeless tale of good and evil, bravery and sacrifice, love and loss.

“Pan’s Labyrinth is part of Peterborough Film Society’s arts cinema programme, which is screened at the John Clare Theatre,” said Joseph Ballard, Peterborough Festival manager. “This exclusive festival showing is a must for all film buffs and those who want to see one of the best films of the past year. A box office hit around the world, it has won critical acclaim wherever it has been shown and will complement The Space4 Shorts Film Festival, which takes place at the Key Theatre during Peterborough Festival.”

The film unfolds through the eyes of Ofelia, a little girl who is uprooted to a rural military outpost commanded by her new stepfather. Her loneliness and vivid imagination lead her to a fantastic discovery of an incredible stone labyrinth near her new home. When she ventures inside, she discovers a surreal world full of mythical creatures.

Pan’s Labyrinth is being shown at the John Clare Theatre, Broadway, in Peterborough, on Thursday 5 July at 7.30 pm. Tickets are available on the door and cost £5 each, £4 concessions. For further information or to book your ticket now, call (01733) 320961. For more details about the film, visit www.panslabyrinth.com.

The nine-day Peterborough Festival runs from Saturday 30 June to Sunday 8 July and is themed ‘Myths and Legends’. It boasts a packed programme of events and activities, and a free full colour brochure is available from the Tourist Information Centre, Central Library, Key Theatre, Town Hall and other council offices.
