Horror Express - Edinburgh Film Guild (Peter Cushing Centennial)

A trainbound Spanish outing for Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee. Those on board are stalked by an unearthly entity seeking to extract the knowledge it needs to escape the earth. Telly Savalas and Helga Line add glamour.

In this season we honour one of the horror genres most respected and cherished actors, Peter Cushing (1913 - 1994). Famed for appearing in a string of “Hammer Horrors”, the first of which, The Curse of Frankenstein (1957), catapulted him to international stardom. Cushing brought gravity and panache to a lurid world of body parts, vampires and ghouls, often playing opposite fellow horror icon and friend Christopher Lee in films for Hammer and rival studios.

Edinburgh Film Guild

The guild offers a great pricing deal - only £20 two seasons of films (or £5 for this season if you are already a member.)

The films are screened in a cosy 30 seat cinema in the guild rooms, which are opposite cinema 3 in Filmhouse

Meetup group members often meet in the guild rooms just before the film. If you're new 'tickets' are available here raher than at the main Filmhouse desk. Please note Meetup organisers aren't guaranteed to be around for every film!

Meetup and guild members often mingle and 'talk film' in the Filmhouse bar after the screenings.

    Damn, I was at the cinema until around 8:30pm and only this Sunday morning noticed the reschedule to Friday at the page bottom. I'll try and make the next film!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
