Director: Michael Curtiz and William Keighley

102 minutes, U.S.A., 1938, Action/Adventure/Romance

Take a swashbuckling, handsome hero, a beautiful maid and a dastardly villain terrorising the people. . . It can only be The Adventures of Robin Hood, the classic adventure from Warner Bros., which is showing for IFI Family to mark the 90th anniversary of the famed Hollywood Studio. 

Despite several knowing re-makes, this early version of the great legend remains one of the most popular. Starring Errol Flynn as the robbing-the-rich outlaw, and Olivia de Havilland as Maid Marian, it’s a terrific adventure that is a great reminder of the glory days of the studios. Not only did Warner Bros. bring audiences the first sound picture with The Jazz Singer, but this film made stunning use of Technicolor; the action scenes never lose energy, while the sets and costumes just add to the atmosphere of Saxon England where men were dashing and villains were set up to be gloriously foiled by the hero himself or any of his Merrie Men.

Tickets: €4.80 per person, €14.40 family ticket (2 adults + 2 children/1 adult + 3 children)
