50th Anniversary Screening! The Final Cut Restoration!

After receiving an anonymous letter about a missing 12-year-old girl, devoutly Christian Police Sergeant Neil Howie (Edward Woodward) travels by seaplane to a remote Scottish island to investigate. But the islanders welcome neither his badge nor religious devotion, for Lord Summerisle (Christopher Lee) and his devoted followers worship only the pagan gods of old - and those gods demand a sacrifice. Howie fears for the missing girl's life and follows every possible lead to find her - despite the islanders' interference - before she becomes a human sacrificial lamb.

Before the glossy resurgence of recent hits THE WITCH and MIDSOMMAR, most genre fans were at least aware of the most famous entry in the folk horror canon. Veering gleefully between the bizarre, the hysterical, and the perverse, director Robin Hardy's tale of one man's belief challenged by a village out of time still manages to mesmerize a modern audience, and lure us playfully into the bosom of old gods. Begin your May Day celebrations with the recently restored director-approved FINAL CUT version of THE WICKER MAN. (STEVEN LANDRY)
