The Lighthouse (15)

A black and white photo of Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson looking into the distance with a lighthouse behind them

From visionary filmmaker Roberts Eggers comes this hypnotic and hallucinatory tale, loosely inspired by Edgar Allan Poe's final work. 

Robert Pattinson and Willem Dafoe star in this award-winning psychological horror from the director behind 2015's modern horror classic, The Witch.

Set on a remote and mysterious New England island in the 1890s, two lighthouse keepers begin to lose their sanity when they become stranded on the island due to a storm. 

Featuring stunning, Academy Award nominated cinematography from Jarin Blaschke, this striking film is a must-see for the big screen.
