A spectacular surprise when it arrived in cinemas seemingly out of nowhere back in 1999, directors Lana and Lilly Wachowski’s game changing blockbuster is a thrilling action filled ride, a special effects revolution and a provocative trip across multiple plains of being and consciousness.
Keanu Reeves, as computer hacker Neo, is our guide through this mind bending science-fiction landscape – we’re right there with him when he chooses between the blue pill and the red pill, taking us down the rabbit hole into a brave new world of cyberpunk cinema.
Laurence Fishburne, Carrie-Anne Moss and Hugo Weaving provide memorable human elements to make sure the machines don’t take over the whole film, with the Wachowskis unleashing ground breaking bullet time and wire-fu effects to enhance the already eye-popping action.
The virtual worlds and alternate realities proposed by the film are no longer so far-fetched, so step back/forward into The Matrix – twenty years on – and experience the future now.
DJ Will White from Propellerheads will set the intergalactic mood with a live DJ set from 19.00.
