Broadway Cinema: Double Take

Broadway Cinema in Nottingham presents a weird weekend of films about dreams and doubles...

Cinema has always been synonymous with escapism, parallel worlds, and journeys into the unknown. Murky and meandering, the films in this season make this literal–with characters journeying into and out of themselves, stepping into different realities. Keep your eyes peeled for characters nodding off–in cinema, sleep often acts as transportation into fantasy realms and dreams have been a consistent motif throughout film history, from Hitchcock’s Dali dream sequence in Spellbound, to The Dude’s Busby Berkeley-style fantasies in The Big Lebowski. In each film, we’ll also find actors playing multiple characters, switching identities, or meeting strange doubles. There’s nothing more unnerving than a doppelgänger – who are they, where have they come from, and most importantly, is their intention benign?

Lean into the uncanny and join Broadway Cinema as they set out like detectives to puzzle over the weekend’s mysteries, letting our curiosity run wild.
