  • Ed Wood

    PGP Presents Ed Wood - 5th December

    Pine Grove pictures is to show Ed Wood on 5th December at 8pm. Doors open at 7pm and there is a bar.
    This is how the film is described:
    Because of his eccentric habits and bafflingly strange films, director Ed Wood (Johnny Depp) is a Hollywood outcast. Nevertheless, with the help of the formerly famous Bela Lugosi and a devoted cast and crew of show-business misfits who believe in Ed’s off-kilter vision, the filmmaker is able to bring his oversize dreams to cinematic life. Despite a lack of critical or commercial success, Ed and his friends manage to create an oddly endearing series of extremely low-budget films.
    Initial release: September 28, 1994 (USA)
