129. Cinematheque


Horror flicks and creepy delights for all ages
Get your face painted with a ghastly wound. Learn about sound design and censorship of horror movies. Or make your own horror film and matching poster. This year’s Culture Night falls on Friday the 13th, and the Cinematheque is marking the date with a splattering of thrills and chills. We will be showing films, too, of course, in our cinemas and Videotheque – even as wall-projected street cinema.
