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.

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.
