The Minack Theatre
Porthcurno
Penzance
TR19 6JU

Compass Presents and Watershed present the first ever cinema screening at the world famous Minack Theatre in Cornwall, renowned for its iconic location perched on the cliffs above the Atlantic ocean.

The dramatic location forms the backdrop for a special outdoor screening of Alfred Hitchcock’s ‘Jamaica Inn’. This little-known classic film adaptation of Daphne du Maurier’s 1936 novel has recently benefitted from a 4k restoration enabling contemporary audiences the opportunity to experience this film in its full glory for the first time.

Doors will open at 7pm for the public to explore the iconic terraced gardens of the Minack Theatre and discover stories of Cornwall’s notorious smuggling heritage, maritime wrecks of the South West and interesting insights into the Cornish heroine Daphne Du Maurier with a free archive trail from 7.30pm. The audience will then settle down to watch Hitchcock’s thrilling pirate caper from 8.15pm set along the recognisably rugged Cornish coastline.
