Tarantino puts city on wish list

Lure of Liverpool brings cult movie director to FACT for exclusive preview screening of new blockbuster

Tarantino puts city on wish list

In a major coup for Liverpool, Oscar-winning director Quentin Tarantino is to appear at FACT on Tuesday September 11 for an exclusive preview screening of his latest film, Death Proof.

Best known for 1994’s Pulp Fiction, which won an Oscar for Best Screenplay, and nominations for Best Director and Best Picture, Tarantino has directed a catalogue of classic movies over the last 15 years, including Reservoir Dogs, Jackie Brown, and Kill Bill Vols 1 & 2.

Tickets for the one-off event will go on sale at FACT at midday Thursday (August 9) £10 (no concessions) available from the box office at FACT or booking line: 0871 704 2063.

Tarantino will follow the film with a Q&A for the audience.

In the film, which is not on general release in the UK until 21 September, Kurt Russell plays stunt man Mike, who uses his super-charged muscle car as a weapon of death, only to find the tables turned on him by a group of tough, sexy, smart women.

Mike Stubbs, boss at FACT says, “This event is a huge coup for Liverpool, in that Quentin Tarantino specifically asked to come here. FACT is a multi-art venue with a strong programme and the power to attract international artistic stars like Pipilotti Rist in 2008, and now a Hollywood megastar,”

By the way, Picturehouse at FACT has the only licensed screens in Liverpool allowing customers to take their drinks into the film with them. What's not to love about this place?
