Watch ‘The Blair Witch Project’ in the woods at night @ Sheffield’s Whirlow Hall Farm
Whirlow Hall Farm are introducing a brand new pop-up outdoor cinema to Sheffield this October – and their first set of immersive cinema events this month includes a double-bill of horror films they think are going to be the scariest film event this Halloween season.
Set on a real-life working farm that’s based a bus ride away from the Student Union on Glossop Road, the trust are transforming their woodland into a cinema which transports the audience members directly into the films on show.
Before, between and after showings there will be witch-themed pub The Black Cat open on site. With a bar, hot drinks, street food and live music, it’s the perfect place to grab a warming bite to eat and grab a drink to calm your nerves before descending into the trees straight onto what feels like the set of the evening’s films.
The double bill begins with critics’ favourite The Witch, set on a New England farm (yep, there’s woodland AND a farm in this one) in the height of witch trial paranoia. The film’s release saw it heralded as a shift change into boundary-breaking and intelligent horror that has recently seen the likes of Get Out and It Comes at Night.
The headline film of the evening is cult classic The Blair Witch Project, which feels like it was written almost exclusively to be shown in a dark woodland at night.
They have a handful of early bird tickets on sale for the double feature, and all profits from the event will go towards supporting the life-changing educational work on the farm for some of the city’s most vulnerable young people.
Witches in the Woods starts at 7.30pm on 27 October 2018. For more details click here
