Matinee Macabre

Pavilion Cinema | Whitby Pavilion

Leeds Festival of Gothica is taking over Whitby Pavillion on April 23rd and 24th of April for our Whitby Goth Celebrations. To sit alongside our Alternative Market we are hosting the Matinee Macabre in the old theatre.

Matinee Macabre Film Festival is aimed at the entire family. Take an opportunity to watch classic, well loved films that are darkly delicious!

If you would like to play homage to your favourite film characters please feel free to dress accordingly!

Frankenweenie | 11:00am - 12:25am

Young Victor Frankenstein (Charlie Tahan) is a science nerd and outsider at school, but he does have one good friend: his dog, Sparky. But then, tragedy strikes, and Sparky shuffles off this mortal coil. Victor is heartbroken, but his science teacher (Martin Landau) gives him an idea of how to jolt old Sparky back to life. The experiment is successful, and all goes well, until Victor's fellow students steal his secret and use it to resurrect other dead animals -- with monstrous consequences.

Labyrinth| 1:00pm - 2:40pm

Teenage Sarah (Jennifer Connelly) journeys through a maze to recover her baby brother (Toby Froud) from a goblin king (David Bowie).

Hocus Pocus | 3:00pm - 4:30pm

After moving to Salem, Mass., teenager Max Dennison (Omri Katz) explores an abandoned house with his sister Dani (Thora Birch) and their new friend, Allison (Vinessa Shaw). After dismissing a story Allison tells as superstitious, Max accidentally frees a coven of evil witches (Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kathy Najimy) who used to live in the house. Now, with the help of a magical cat, the kids must steal the witches' book of spells to stop them from becoming immortal.
