Flashback Film Fest returns to Cineplex Langley

Ninth annual festival showcasing 15 classic films from Feb. 2-8

Cineplex’s ninth annual Flashback Film Fest returns to Langley Feb. 2-8 to provide another dose of nostalgia-inducing cinema.

Offering action, sci-fi and comedy favourites curated with the help of renowned film critic and host of Pop Life, Richard Crouse, guests can see their favourite cyborg assassins, bumbling ex-cons, time travelling teenagers and more.

“This year’s line-up is made up of timeless films that are sure to evoke the same excitement the audience felt the first time they saw them in theatres,” said Brad LaDouceur, Cineplex’s vice president of event cinema.

“The Flashback Film Fest is a part of our ever-growing Event Cinema programming that offers guests a chance to get up close and personal with acclaimed stage productions, iconic works of art, highly-anticipated sporting and concert events by heading to their local Cineplex theatre.”

Langley is one of only three cinemas in B.C. to host the 2018 festival.

The lineup includes:

  • Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1975) *43 year anniversary
  • Drunken Master (1978) *40 year anniversary
  • WarGames (1983) *35 year anniversary
  • Dune (1984)
  • Gremlins (1984)
  • The Terminator (1984)
  • A View to a Kill (1985)
  • Back to the Future (1985)
  • Raising Arizona (1987)
  • Terminator 2: Judgment Day 3D (1991/2017)
  • The Big Lebowski (1998) *20 year anniversary
  • The Iron Giant (1999)

The Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg’s Cornetto Trilogy includes:

  • Shaun of the Dead (2004)
  • Hot Fuzz (2007)
  • The World’s End (2013)

“We are living at a time when there is an amazing appetite for 80s and 90s pop culture and we had that in mind when selecting the films for this year’s Flashback Film Fest,” said Crouse.

“Many of today’s successful films and TV shows are either influenced by or pay homage to films included in the festival’s line-up. I’m really looking forward to celebrating the 20th anniversary of The Big Lebowski because if there’s ever an opportunity to see ‘The Dude’ back on the big screen, fans should abide.”

Tickets for festival films cost $8.99 per admission, $7.99 for three or more films, or $75 for all 15 films.
