A film festival within the Festival – A new kind of Rock ‘N’ Roll
Glastonbury’s Cineramageddon has revealed its film roster for Glastonbury 2019.
The drive-in cinema attraction is described as offering “a unique post-apocalyptic and nocturnal ambience in which to watch an unforgettable program of films in ways never seen or dreamt of before”, Cineramageddon will screen films “outside and under the stars” (on the South West corner of the site) in what is being billed as a “five-day film festival.”
Cineramageddon first made its debut at the 2017 edition of the Festival – Curated by director Julien Temple, the drive-in cinema boasts state of the art projection, the biggest cinema screen in Britain and an auditorium courtesy of artist Joe Rush featuring over sixty mutated vintage American and British cars, repurposed funfair rides and a Lear jet.
2017 also saw Hollywood star Johnny Depp make an appearance at Glastonbury to introduce his 2004 film The Libertine.
The festival announcement reads: “The sculpture park is open to view all day – with music from midday – whilst every day in the revamped Black Lamp hub, there will be film screenings, guest Q&As including Bros, Trojan Records and Don Letts, a new bar and film-making discussions with Bridgwater’s Engine Room organisation.”
