Mad Max Night

While working on the section Genre Cinema: After the Apocalypse, FIFF had this idea of screening the four Mad Max movies in one single night. The first screening will start at midnight, in the night from Saturday 26th to Sunday 27th March, and the last one will start at 6:40 in the morning. Fury Road will be screened in its Black & Chrome edition.
A "Mad Max Night" ticket is available. It gives access to the four screenings at the preferential rate of CHF 45.- (reduced at CHF 38.-). Please book a seat for each screenings!
It is not obligatory to attend the four screening. It is also possible to get a ticket for one film or the other only.
Careful: we change the clocks that night
