Glastonbury‘s cinema tent, also known as Pilton Palais, has revealed its film schedule for this year’s Festival.
Announcing the news via Twitter this afternoon (Wednesday, 1st June) at 1:00 PM, Glasto officials said: “Our cinema tent, Pilton Palais, is back again for 2022 with a schedule packed full of great films!”
The 2022 roster poster (seen below) includes films such as The Beatles: Get Back – The Rooftop Concert, The Matrix, Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness, Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets Of Dumbledore and many more.
Highlights include The Greatest Showman Official Sing-A-Long, after mid-night screenings of Rocky Horror Picture Show, as well as a special screening of Minion’s: The Rise of Gru and the new feature-length version of Brian and Charles, both of which are not out until July.
Their featured musical artist this year comes direct from Hawaii:- Taimane Gardner, Ukulele Virtuoso & composer who will be playing six, fifteen-minute film-themed sets in the Pilton Palais ahead of specific films.
“Glastonbury Film Festival” at the Palais saw Hollywood actors Brad Pitt and Tilda Swinton promote their then-upcoming movie, Okja in a staged a late-night “premiere” that year.
Ahead of their anticipated return in 2022, Pilton Palais released the following statement: “It’s great to be back and in full swing again after two enforced fallow years. Things have changed considerably in the cinema world during this time, what with most film productions shutting down for almost two years, and even now some older audiences are still reluctant to set foot inside cinemas again, with some films releasing straight to streaming platforms, while others only stay in cinema’s a month or so at most before moving on to streaming.
Adding: “This initially presented us (Riyad and myself, joint area organisers) with a big challenge putting together a relevant program, but I think you will agree we have risen to the occasion. In fact, I’d go so far as to quote the big man himself Mr Eavis, with those immortal words and say “I think this is the best festival (film line-up) yet !!”,”

In other Glasto-news:
last month (26th May), Glastonbury revealed a limited edition upcycled vest designed by Stella McCartney, available now from the official website shop with all proceeds going to War Child’s Emergency Fund – helping children in Ukraine and other conflicts.
In 2007, Stella McCartney designed a limited-edition vest which was sold for charity at that year’s Glastonbury Festival.
The design, which features a blue sky, green field and psychedelic rainbow, was inspired by the Seventies airbrushed t-shirts her Mum and Dad used to get made.
The vest has gone on to become a rare collector’s item, but a recent warehouse audit unveiled several boxes of vests which had not been sold.
Staying true to Stella McCartney’s ethos and principles to reduce our impact on the planet the original vests have now been upcycled and repurposed with a new mushroom artwork celebrating fungi as the future of fashion and our planet.
These limited edition vests are on sale now via Glastonbury’s official online shop, with all proceeds going to War Child’s Emergency Fund.
Although the full Glastonbury 2022 line-up including the set times breakdown was revealed last month (30th May), posters for dedicated stages and attractions have continued to be shared on social media as well as on the official Glastonbury website.
Last month also saw BBC reveal its coverage plans for this month’s Glastonbury Festival, which will mark the first time the Beeb has broadcast any music event in Ultra High Definition.
Block9 was the seventeenth area to announce its individual line-up poster (on the 27th of May) for this year’s Festival.
Cineramageddon announced its individual line-up poster on the 25th of May, while West Holts revealed its lineup poster on the 24th of May – and Unfairground theirs on the 20th of May, just one day after The Park area which came on the 19th of May.
The Kidzfield revelation came on the 16th of May, just three days after Croissant Neuf‘s on the 13th, and followed announcements from Acoustic Stage and The Glade – on the 12th and the 11th of the month, respectively.
Late-night areas The Common and – Shangri-La also released their line-ups, on the 6th and the 4th of May, respectively. In addition to the Left Field line-up that was revealed on Tuesday morning, the 3rd of May.
Other key stories from last month’s string of announcements included confirmation that Arcadia’s iconic fire-breathing Spider will be returning to the Festival in 2022 – following planning issues with the Pangea crane, which had replaced the Spider in 2019 but will not be featured at this year’s event.
And finally, Field of Avalon was the first area to announce its dedicated line-up poster for 2022 on Tuesday, the 12th of April.

Meanwhile, the first main line-up announcement poster revelation, shown below, dropped in March of this year.
As seen in the poster above, Paul McCartney and Kendrick Lamar will be joining previously announced headliner Billie Eilish to top the bill at this year’s event.
Eilish will be playing the Pyramid Stage on the Friday night – and by doing so make history as the youngest ever solo artist to headline the Festival at only 20-years-old.
Another historic moment will occur when Sir Paul McCartney takes to the Pyramid Stage on the Saturday night – which will subsequently make him the oldest Glastonbury headliner at 80-years-old.
Diana Ross will likewise be performing on the Pyramid Stage for the Sunday Teatime Legends Slot, while Lamar will be headlining the same stage later that evening.
Another exciting announcement of sorts which was revealed earlier this month included the new Glastonbury 2022 map, which featured lots of interesting changes and improvements to the site grounds ahead of the Festival this June.

DON’T BE FOOLED:
Glastonbury Festival would very much like fans to be aware that there are people out there who will try and sell fake Glastonbury tickets to unsuspecting, willing and innocent potential purchasers.
Although Glasto-veterans who have been going to the Festival for quite some time may recognise these scams for what they are, newcomers to the Festival might not know that tickets are only sold on one site which is: glastonbury.seetickets.com – and any other site claiming to sell tickets for the Festival are not authentic.
