The IFI once again invites audiences to take a chance with us on a Sunday afternoon. Our Mystery Matinee strand is a screening about which only two things will be known: it could be literally anything from the history of cinema, and the choice of film will only be revealed when it appears onscreen.
Sometimes it will be a preview, but not always; sometimes, it will be a title one might expect to see at the IFI, but not always. We intend to keep audiences guessing, and hope that you will enjoy taking the risk.
