Coast-to-Coast is a major film culture and archive programme – part of the British Film Institute’s Britain on Film project – that aims to highlight selected treasures from regional and national archives: unseen gems and classic films screened in unusual venues accompanied by special archive compilations.

This Friday, in partnership with Belfast Film Festival, Northern Ireland Screen's Digital Film Archive presents a screening of Grabbers (2012). When an island off the coast of Ireland is invaded by bloodsucking aliens the heroes discover that getting drunk is the only way to survive. Outdoor screening on the island of Sketrick beside Daft Eddy’s Bar & Restaurant, a beautiful location near the shore… Please bring your own camper seating, blankets, etc for grass seating location. Full bar available at Daft Eddy’s.

“A near-irresistible Friday-night-out monster picture in the tradition of Lake Placid or Tremors, with a boozy Irish charm… a distinctive addition to the catalogue of alien invasions.” Kim Newman. Empire Magazine

Alongside the feature, there will be an opportunity to see a selection of specially-chosen archive content.

Tickets, £7, are available here.
