Drawing on classic 1950s movies and the on-going fascination with Area 51 conspiracy theories, Del Toro’s tale of the inexplicable is an old-school cinematic joy.

At the height of the Cold War, in a secret US laboratory, a young, mute woman begins to communicate with a strange, aquatic creature. Intertwining sci-fi, horror and gothic romance to spellbinding effect, Del Toro’s singular vision shows how love takes many shape-shifting forms and this intoxicating film is a pure celebration of tolerance and human connection.

Dir. Guillermo Del Toro, Canada/US, 2017, 123 mins.
Cast. Sally Hawkins, Octavia Spencer, Michael Shannon.

Q. Will we be watching the film from the pool?
A. You won’t be swimming while watching the film – sorry! The film will be shown on the concrete sun terrace next to the pool (where they sometimes put deckchairs). The pool will not be open for swimming on the evenings of the events.

Q. How can I book tickets?
A. This event is sold out, but please book on this website for other events where there is ticket availability.
We have expanded our Open Air Cinema programme this year to incorporate an extra weekend at Tinside Lido, because the events are so popular and the venue is perfect. Meanwhile, we will be closing our building for the summer on June 29th. This is slightly earlier than in previous years, and will mean that booking for Open Air Cinema events will be online only after June 28th. All tickets purchased online for Open Air Cinema can be collected at the events, or printed at home. If you have issues with booking online, please call the Box Office on 01752 206114 or email info@plymouthartscentre.org and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
