Prepare yourself for a nerve-shredding night with our double-bill of suspense classics – two cautionary tales about what can happen when you’re out of your depth.

Certificate 18
Duration 124 + 109 mins

You’ll be glad you’re on dry land for this nerve-shredding night of almost-unbearable suspense, a double-bill of cautionary tales about what can happen when you stray too far out of your depth. Few films have the immediate recognition factor of Jaws, but seeing Steven Spielberg’s Man v. Shark thriller on a big-screen places you right in the heart of the action, revealing new details, ratcheting up the tension and reminding you why audiences stayed away from the sea in droves when it was released in 1975. From the moment John Williams’ famous score kicks in at the start to the climactic boat-trip taken by Roy Scheider, Richard Dreyfuss and Robert Shaw, you’ll be caught hook, line and sinker.

Then, just when you think you’ve survived, things get even more intense as Burt Reynolds and friends take a trip into the American wilderness and come up against human monsters who turn a canoeing holiday in Paradise into a living hell. The famous ‘Duelling Banjos’ that kick off John Boorman’s 1972 classic may suggest light-hearted fun ahead – the truth, as you’ll discover, couldn’t be more different in this white-knuckle, white-water thriller.

Former Ash member Charlotte Hatherley’s cinema-themed sets have been a regular feature of respected Kings Cross music venue Spiritland’s stellar line-up since its launch last year.

Jaws is perhaps the most perfectly constructed horror story in our time.

Each of Deliverance's four lead performances is exceptional, none more so than Burt Reynolds' beefy, supercilious Lewis.
