Forbidden Worlds Film Festival


To celebrate the 40th birthday of Bristol’s beloved video shop 20th Century Flicks, a new genre film festival took place at the former IMAX cinema inside the Bristol aquarium, which had been left abandoned for the last decade.


With a focus on repertory fantasy, action, science-fiction and horror from the year of the shop’s inception (1982), the packed-out 300 seat auditorium hosted screenings of classics such as Blade Runner, Mad Max 2 and Poltergeist, along with obscure and weird titles like Basket Case, Thrilling Bloody Sword and Forbidden World, as well as Cauty's own documentary on 20th Century Flicks, The Last Video Store.
