Bristol’s Week in Film: August 9-15 2019

Given the weather forecast, it’s looking rather unlikely that those sadly deflated gasbags will be going up this weekend. This good news is that there’s plenty of alternative entertainment on offer in local cinemas, where it’s guaranteed to be free of high winds and driving rain.

Gurinder Chadha’s Blinded by the Light is the big new release, with the latest feature-length animated toy ad, Playmobil: The Movie, for kiddies.

There are previews of Dora and the City of Lost Gold on Sunday and the new Tarantino flick, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, from Wednesday.

The Bristol Science Film Festival returns for its annual weekend, whose highlight is a session chortling at the bad science in a Hollywood film. This year, they’ve chosen Stealth.

Oh, and the allegedly final cut of Apocalypse Now returns in 4K.
