660 1568099651

Now that we've dipped our toes into the crunchy leaves of autumn, we can start to look forward to all the wholesome activities that come along with this most colourful of seasons.

Top of our list is Leadmill Cinematic's programme of film screenings, featuring cult classics Pulp Fiction and Grease at The Leadmill, and The Omen and Get Out at the Samuel Worth Chapel in Sheffield General Cemetery.

On 31 October, you're invited to take a seat in the Samuel Worth Chapel for a double bill of films guaranteed to leave you on the edge of your seat. The screenings will feature a full bar complete with themed drinks, popcorn and pick 'n' mix to get you in the Halloween mood.

First up is The Omen. Described as one of the darkest and most deeply disturbing films of all time, Richard Donner's 1976 horror-soaked, supernatural cult classic tells a tale of the Anti Christ walking the earth in the form of a small boy.

Up next on 31 October is Get Out, Jordan Peele's thrilling modern classic. The film follows Chris and Rose on their weekend away with the in-laws. As the weekend progresses Chris starts to uncover a series of disturbing secrets that are being kept by Rose's parents. This is a nerve-wracking psychological horror which is guaranteed to mess with your mind.

Freya Gill-Stevens, Promotions Manager at The Leadmill, said, "The Leadmill has been running film screenings for several years now, and we're really proud to be taking the next step in making these halloween screenings immersive and absolutely terrifying by placing them in such an unusual setting!"

Back at The Leadmill, two American cult classics take to the screen. Celebrating its 25th anniversary, Pulp Fiction screens on 15 October, with Grease showing on 27 November.

Tickets for The Omen and Get Out are priced at £11 each and are on sale now. Tickets for Pulp Fiction and Grease are £6 each, with options to upgrade to Table and VIP tickets. Buy tickets here.
