Regent Street Cinema Presents: Apocalypse Now
The closest you will get to battle without entering the warzone
Built in 1848, Regent Street Cinema was the first in the country to show moving pictures. With a recent renovation restoring it to its former grandeur, it has added an old school touch to the capital's movie scene, perfect for catching those classic flicks. This time, prepare yourselves for Francis Ford Coppola's haunting, hallucinatory Vietnam War epic, Apocalypse Now. Based on Joseph Conrad’s novel Heart of Darkness, Apocalypse Now follows Captain Willard, a man in the edge of sanity. Willard is assigned to find and deal with AWOL, Col Kurtz, rumoured to have set himself up in the Cambodian jungle as a local lethal godhead. This is cinema at its most audacious and visionary.

Apocalypse Now is touched by genius." – Little White Lies "A film of pure sensation, dazzling audiences with light and noise, laying bare the stark horror - and unimaginable thrill - of combat." – Time Out Certificate: 15. Valid ID required. Runtime: 2 hours 27 minutes.
