Cinema Rediscovered 2021

Thursday 28 July to 1 August.

We are sorry but we have had to cancel our Cinema Rediscovered events this weekend due to a team shortage in the theatre at Arnolfini. The Galleries, Bookshop and Harbourside Bar plan to remain open.

The Open Road will go ahead as scheduled over at the Watershed.

Who was William Friese-Greene? will now be taking place online as a free event. All bookers will be sent a link and offered a refund and rest assured that refunds will be issued next week once the festival is over.

Cinema Rediscovered hope to reschedule The Maltese Falcon later in the year, please keep an eye on their website for details.

Please visit for the rest of the programme available in and around Bristol.

If you had tickets for Cinema Rediscovered events, the Box Office will be in touch to offer you to arrange a refund next week.
