Glastonbury Festival, which takes place at Worthy Farm, Pilton, Somerset from Wednesday 21st to Sunday 25th June, has announced details of their cinema, the Pilton Palais.

This will be tent’s 35th anniversary, which comes with an increased capacity and larger screen as well as the new Cha Cha Cha cafe and bar. The tent stays in the same location near the Acoustic Stage, and will have a newly designed floor covered in coconut matting.

A varied programme of films will be shown throughout the festival, starting on Wednesday with Sing, a musical story about a small town theatre hosting a talent show. Other films on the Wednesday include the Bruce Lee classic Enter the Dragon, the recent blockbuster Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2, the director’s cut of Donnie Darko and documentary Beside Bowie: The Mick Ronson Story.

The tent will welcome back Tilda Swinton as the guest curator, bringing the UK Premiere of OKJA, alongside the documentary about Iggy Pop Gimme Danger, children’s classic Laputa: Castle in the Sky, Wes Anderson’s comedy Rushmore and occult thriller Don’t Look Now.

Other films shown over the weekend will include Your Name, Frozen, Monty Python & the Holy Grail, Alien, The Big Lebowski, Bag of Rice, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Robocop, Star Wars: Rogue One, Metropolis, Paterson, The Adventures of Prince Achmed, Doctor Strange, What About Bob? and Ghostbusters. 

More more of a taster, see the poster down the page.

As well as its eclectic film line-up, from 10pm the cinema will be screening live performances of this year’s Pyramid Stage headline sets for those that don’t want to be crammed in with the crowds.

For the confirmed acts as well as the fullest list of rumours of who might be playing see the Glastonbury Festival line-up page.

Don't forget the ‘Love the Farm, Leave no Trace’ pledge:-

  • I will use the toilets provided and not pee on the land
  • I will use the recycling bins provided and not throw my rubbish on the ground
  • I will take all my belongings home with me again, including my tent and all camping equipment
  • I will bag up my rubbish in the bin bags provided by the campsite stewards and use the recycling pens provided in each campsite.

Please commit to this pledge and encourage others to stick to it too, to help ensure a sustainable Festival.
