1999 season

Get ready for a 1999 makeover this Summer as Light House have dug deep into the archives and dusted off our tinted glasses to treat audiences to a feast of film.

"The year 1999 was certainly a formative one as I spent a huge portion of it planning to go to my local cinema to absorb sights and sounds that would stay with me for the next 25 years. The 20th century went out on a cinematic high with masters like Stanley Kubrick, Pedro Almodovar, Spike Lee, David Lynch and Martin Scorsese releasing films alongside newcomers like Sofia Coppola, Paul Thomas Anderson, Lynne Ramsay and Spike Jonze.

It was a year that changed the mainstream cinematic landscape with genre defining releases such as The Blair Witch Project and The Matrix taking horror and action to terrifying and incredible new heights. 1999 gave us some of greatest coming of age movies of all time in 10 Things I Hate About You, Cruel Intentions, But I’m a Cheerleader and razor-sharp satires such as Election and Drop Dead Gorgeous. It’s a delight and honour to dedicate and entire season to one of cinema’s greatest years." - David Kelly, Programmer
