Genre festival moves to Vue West End in London’s Leicester Square for its 15th edition.

Film4 FrightFest has moved to the Vue West End for its 15th edition, which runs from Aug 21-25.

The five-day genre festival has run at the Empire Leicester Square for the past five years, and spent four years before that at the Odeon West End.

Alan Jones, FrightFest co-director, commented: “Relocating to Vue Leicester Square for this year’s event will allow us to be even more creative and ambitious, whilst still retaining our unique blend of inclusiveness and great value for money.”

FrightFest has hosted its last three Halloween all-nighter events at the Vue West End. The move follows the conversion of Empire’s Screen 1 into an IMAX theatre with an additional digital screen.

This year’s event will be spread over more screens than previous years, but the festival and day passes will remain in place alongside individual tickets.

There will also be special events in the West End in the days leading up to the festival.

Joanne Webb, marketing and sales director at Vue Entertainment, said: “We are delighted to be hosting this year’s popular FrightFest at Vue Leicester Square and are looking forward to offering the fans even more choice for FrightFest’s 15th year.”

“We’re looking forward to a new era in FrightFest’s colourful history, and working alongside Daniel Goodwin and his enthusiastic team at Vue,” added Ian Rattray, FrightFest co-director.
