Bolton’s Cinebox presents a very special Hallowe’en scratch and sniff screening of Robin Hardy’s 1973 ‘The Wicker Man’
One of the great British horror films of all time and a genuine cult classic,The Wicker Man successfully blends folklore with post-60s psychedelia, as Edward Woodward’s police officer investigates the disappearance of a young girl on a remote island. However, the locals claim she never existed. As he probes deeper into village life, he suspects something darker to be at work. Audience members will receive a scratch card overlaid with 10 encapsulated odours, and will be prompted at key scenes throughout the film to break the gel coating and inhale the associated aroma. This story of a policeman (Edward Woodward) who visits a remote island populated by Pagan acolytes and naked villagers contains plenty of opportunities for response, from whisky-sozzled pub patrons, fishy goings-on,the local chocolate shop and the infamous terrifying finale!
B.Y.O.B. and free popcorn!
