New Year On The Fringes – Fringe Cinema / Crossing The Streams

Part Two of our look at what is happening on The Fringes in the New Year. Today we look at the Crossing The Streams and Fringe Cinema strands.

First up Crossing The Streams. After the success of our annual double bill this Christmas, we look to another action hero of the 1980s for a bit of a February pick me up!



MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE (PG) – Friday 19th March at 8:45pm

The action-packed cartoon is transformed into a live action adventure as He-Man (Dolph Lungren) battles the dark lord Skeletor (Frank Langella) across the universe from the planet Eternia to 1987 Earth, roping in two teenagers (Courteney Cox and Robert Duncan McNeill) in a quest for the cosmic key!

In a 80s-tastic quarter, Fringe Cinema also dips its toe in the 1980s for a puppet filled fantasy epic from the Henson Company. The Dark Crystal plays for the first time ever at QUAD in March



THE DARK CRYSTAL (PG) – Friday 18th – Sunday 20th March

On another planet in the distant past, a Gelfling embarks on a quest to find the missing shard of a magic crystal and restore order to his world. A truly unique piece of film-making that saw Jim Henson stepping away from the success of the Muppets and embracing this fantasy world of Gelflings and Skeksis. With Henson and Frank Oz bringing to life the conceptual drawings of Brian Froud, The Dark Crystal has a wonderful style that still looks great on the big screen today.
