Nineteen Eighty-Four

Directed by Rudolph Cartier

Cleaving closely to George Orwell’s celebrated source novel. this charts the impoverished life of Ministry of Truth worker Winston Smith (Cushing) and his unnerving descent into paranoia, surveillance and the terror of Room 101.

Arguably Kneale’s most acclaimed adaptation, this legendary TV landmark, made in tandem with producer Rudolph Cartier, brought Orwell’s story of a totalitarian future Britain straight into the nation’s living rooms. In the process it ignited a media furore and helped to push the boundaries of what television drama could attempt and achieve. As a version of Orwell’s dystopian nightmare, it’s still never been bettered.

Socially Distanced Screenings at HOME: An Update          

From Mon 27 Dec until Sun 30 Jan, the majority of film screenings at HOME will be socially distanced.

How do our socially distanced screenings work?

When booking, please select whether you would like to sit at the front, middle or back of the screen.  You will automatically be allocated the best available seats in that area. Our booking system automatically places two empty seats either side of your booked seats.

When you arrive at HOME, please take a moment to check on your tickets which seats you have booked. If you are unsure of where to go, our staff will be on hand and happy to help. Once in the cinema, we ask that you stay in your allocated seat and do not move to sit with others.

We have a number of measures in place at HOME for the comfort and safety of our visitors. Find out more here.
