Bristol’s week in film: October 30-November 5 2020

The weather forecast suggests it’s going to piss with rain all weekend, so a cosy, Covid-secure cinema looks like an increasingly attractive option for anyone who wants to get spooked for Halloween. Alternatively, you could sit in your car and get spooked at Filton Airfield with the Adventure Drive-In Cinema.

A strong batch of new releases includes the locally made Philophobia, Elisabeth Moss in Shirley and Riz Ahmed’s Mogul Mowgli.

Oh, and V for Vendetta is back in cinemas. Mercifully, social distancing means that you don’t have to sit next to anyone wearing a tinfoil helmet.
