DukeFest 2022 – The 35MM Trailers!

Here’s the list of the super rare 35MM trailers we played this year at the Prince Charles Cinema as part of DukeFest 2022!

We’d not been able to watch any of these trailers before the festival, so we got to watch the first with a crown, which is the best possible way to experience them!

High Ballin’ / The Big Sleep was a UK TV spot for a double bill of both of these 1978 thrillers.

Q The Winged Serpent and Immoral were also both very rare UK TV spots with a very British accented voice over track!

Time The Musical was the Cliff Richard starring stage musical from the 1980s, though sadly didn’t actually include any footage from the stage show itself, or any pics of Cliff!

O.C. & Stiggs meet the Mystery Trailers


Thanks so much to everyone who made it along last night to our Check The Gate 35MM screening of Robert Altman‘s very obscure O.C. & Stiggs, we hope you all made it through this very strange film in one piece. It was the perfect way to experience this unique entry in Altman’s filmography, on the big screen from a pristine looking 35MM print! A huge thanks to Paul and everyone at the Prince Charles Cinema for inviting us to be part of the season and big thanks to Park Circus for providing us with such a high quality print.

Plus we got to find out what was on the Mystery Trailer Reel as well, above are my notes I took while the trailer madness played out on the big screen, so what was on there? Here’s the full list:

Night Crossing (1982)

Sammy’s Super T-Shirt (1978)

Porky’s (1981)

The Rose (1979)

Never Cry Wolf (1983)

Water (1985)

The Peregrine Hunters (1978)

Crime Busters (1977)

The Fury (1978)

Firepower (1979)

Cocoon (1985)

Deep Waters (1978)

So we got super lucky with an incredibly fun and random selection, particularly the 3 super rare Children’s Film Foundation trailers, I knew there must have been a good reason I picked this reel up. Discovering what was on it with everyone last night was the perfect way to start the evening! Hope you all enjoyed them as much as we did!
