The Hateful Eight 70mm Roadshow Comes to Filmhouse

Filmhouse is proud to announce that we will be the second cinema in the UK to present the 70mm roadshow version of Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight, following its premiere engagement at London's Odeon Leicester Square.

The film will screen in 70mm at Filmhouse from Fri 12 to Thu 25 February. Tickets for all 70mm screenings are available now on the Filmhouse website, in person at our box office, or by phone on 0131 228 2688. Tickets are also available for all digital screenings, running Fri 8 to Thu 28 January.

The Hateful Eight is Tarantino's eighth feature as a director, following Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, Kill Bill, Death Proof, Inglourious Basterds and Django Unchained. It is also the first new film to be projected in Ultra Panavision 70mm in half a century.

This exclusive roadshow presentation of the film - for which there is only a single print in the country - runs nearly twenty minutes longer than the multiplex version, and includes an overture and intermission as well as extra footage not seen anywhere else.

Rod White, Head of Filmhouse: 'Filmhouse is committed to showing its new releases on film whenever prints are available from UK distributors. Most recently, we were both the first Scottish cinema to screen a 70mm print of Interstellar and to show Todd Haynes' Carol on 35mm. As long as filmmakers continue to make films on film, we'll do everything we can to make sure their audiences are able to see them projected here.'

Filmhouse's year-round programme includes films shown from DCP (both in 2D and Active 3D), and analogue 16mm, 35mm and 70mm formats. Filmhouse Cinema 1 has been equipped for 70mm projection since 1989, when its inaugural screening in the format was the Edinburgh premiere of the complete version of Michael Cimino's epic Western, Heaven's Gate. Since 2011, classic films screened in 70mm at Filmhouse have included Vertigo, Alien, The Thing, Dune, Aliens and Baraka.
