FLASHH, AHAAAAAA!!! Just in time to celebrate the iconic film’s 35th anniversary (yes, it’s really been that long) Flash Gordon is landing at the Observatory hosted by Bristol Sunset Cinema on the 26th September for an outdoor screening of this lycra filled, cheesy-in-a-good-way classic.
In case you (somehow) haven’t heard or seen the story of Flash, here’s a quick synopsis:
American football hero Flash (Sam Jones) is dragged from Earth to the outer reaches of the Universe where he must battle the evil dictatorship of Ming the Merciless (Max von Sydow). He is helped by technical wizard Dr Hans Zarkov, the winged Prince Vultan (Brian Blessed) and the brooding Prince Barin (a pre-Bond Timothy Dalton).
As if that wasn’t enough, the films iconic soundtrack is provided by none other than Queen:
We’ll be kicking off at 8.30pm on Saturday 26th September, so bring your best 1980’s hairdo’s (or hairdon’ts) and join us for the evening to reminisce or to discover your new favourite film at the site of one of Bristol’s most famous landmarks.
Tickets are £10 for adults, £5 for children (under 10 years), and can be purchased in advance from Bristol Sunset Cinema here: https://ti.to/bristol-sunset-cinema/flash-gordon
“Flash, I love you! But we only have 14 hours to save the Earth!”
