Bigger Than Life is dedicated to bringing celebrated classics and overlooked treasures back to the big screen. We produce bespoke events designed to honour and elevate our chosen films, with an emphasis on screening from 35mm celluloid wherever possible. On the night, guests can expect a mix of expert speakers, pre-show short films and introductions…with a few surprises thrown in too.
Why Bigger Than Life? We’re named for Nicholas Ray’s 1956, classic Hollywood film starring James Mason. It’s a nod to the kind of movies we want to show, but we hope the name also evokes the massive, overpowering potential of cinema. Our mission is a simple one – we want to put big films on big screens.
