Presented as part of SHE'S CURIOUS, a programme of events and activities celebrating the imagination, creativity and private worlds of women through film taking place in July 2022 in Brighton & Hove and Lewes.
Take a trip down the rabbit hole...


Alice, Jan Švankmajer’s first feature film, is a surrealist adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” (1865). The film combines animation, puppetry, and live action to evoke a distorted fantastical and ominous atmosphere. 

Alice follows her stuffed rabbit through a portal inside her dresser to be whisked away to Wonderland. While the White Rabbit, Mad Hatter and Cheshire Cat are still present, the classic story and bizarre characters have undergone an unsettling transformation. This familiar wonderland is reimagined as a grotesque and menacing world. 

“Inventive in his ability to marry pure, startling nonsense with rigorous logic, black wit with piercing psychological insights. Here, as always, Svankmajer’s methods are hugely enjoyable in their perversity” - Time Out 

Doors & Bar open 7pm for a 7:30pm start. Pay bar and affordable popcorn stand on site.
