Watch Hammer Films on the Big Screen at The Vault

The flicker club presents Hammer: classics and cutting edge.

Love Hammer Films or just love a good classic horror then here is your chance to see some of the greats on the big screen at The Vault the Old Vic Tunnels.

We are thrilled and slightly scared to announce that the flicker club has formed an unholy alliance with the mighty Hammer, Britain’s legendary house of horror.


Some of these films have been restored to HD quality and watching it in the Vault will just set that perfect atmosphere for watching these great films of yesteryear. And an added bonus is that there will be a special guest at each screening.
