ON THE eve of The Oscars, Clevedon’s Curzon cinema will present a double bill with two of the hottest contenders for top awards showing on Sunday.

Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel and Richard Linklater’s Boyhood will be screened back-to-back from 2pm, with scones and cream to be served at the bar inbetween.

At the recent BAFTA awards both films dominated the ceremony with eight gongs between them. The most prestigious prizes for Best Picture and Best Director were won by Richard Linklater for a film that was made over 12 years primarily charting the childhood and adolescence of a boy with extraordinary intimacy.

Wes Anderson’s comic delight bagged five BAFTAs including Original Screenplay, Original Music, Production Design, Costume Design and Make Up and Hair reflecting just how stylish this film looks.

The Grand Budapest Hotel and Boyhood were overlooked by many on release so Luke Doran, who programmes the Curzon, thought local cinema-goers would be glad of an opportunity to catch them since they have been making news at award ceremonies worldwide.

Both will be put on as part of the Curzon’s awards season, which has seen a number of award winning movies put on for audiences.

Tickets are available online at www.curzon.org.uk or by calling 01275 871000.
