This is another yearly post thats becoming a bit of a habit…
I love Glastonbury cinema. After the musics done and its wind-down time, sometimes its perfect to go and crash in front of a film on a huge outdoor screen and drink another 3 litres of pear cider. 😉
And so, post 1 of 2 regarding Glastonbury line-ups – the cinema listings!
A few good ones this year. Not quite as excited about the lineup as I was last year, but the news of them replacing their 35mm projectors with new HD projectors showing films on HDDVD and Blu-ray is very welcome. The only problem I had in the past was how grainy the picture looked from a distance, hopefully this will be an improvement!
Also, the Bourne series should be pretty good on the big screen. I’ll see if I’m coherent enough to stagger up there to see any of them!
Last year, I also released a spreadsheet version of the lineups which proved to be popular, so I’ve thrown together another one this year – you can download the Glastonbury 2008 Lineup spreadsheet here, with full listings for all the major music stages and cinema fields.
And so, arranged into alphabetical order, here are the cinema listings…

Did you go to the Lost Picture Show cinema tent in The Common this year? We hosted an ‘alternative’ film programme and provided a luxurious mattressed auditorium for weary festival goers. Not to mention the cocktails!
