Every Monday evening at The Alibi in London, a free screening of a movie takes place as part of The Alibi Film Club.
On Monday 17th March 2014, you can catch a free screening of John Boorman’s fantasy classic, EXCALIBUR, from 8pm.
A lush retelling of the legend of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table, Excalibur is a dark and engrossing tale. Director John Boorman (Deliverance) masterfully handles the tale of the mythical sword Excalibur, and its passing from the wizard Merlin to the future king of England. Arthur pulls the famed sword from a stone and is destined to be crowned king. As the king embarks on a passionate love affair with Guenevere, an illegitimate son, and Merlin’s designs on power, threaten Arthur’s reign. The film is visually stunning and unflinching in its scenes of combat and black magic. Featuring an impressive supporting cast, including early work from the likes of Liam Neeson and Gabriel Byrne, Excalibur is an adaptation of the legend both faithful and bold. –Robert Lane
