BFI Southbank today announce full details of our forthcoming season celebrating the work of the late ENNIO MORRICONE, one of the finest composers to ever work in the cinema.

Morricone, who sadly died in July, wrote an incredible number of scores – and this season will give audiences a small taste of some of the best-loved films he worked on. The season will run at BFI Southbank from 19 October – 30 November – titles will include The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (Sergio Leone, 1966), The Thing (John Carpenter, 1982), Days of Heaven (Terrence Malick, 1978), The Untouchables (Brian De Palma, 1988), Cinema Paradiso (Giuseppe Tornatore, 1988), Tie Me Up, Tie Me Down (Pedro Almodóvar, 1989) and many more.

Throughout October and November BFI Southbank continues to operate with exhaustive health and safety measures including social distancing throughout the venue, face coverings as standard for all visitors and staff, increased frequency of deep cleans, e-ticketing, scheduling of staggered screenings and more. These measures continue to be informed by ongoing consultation with the industry, our staff, and our customers, with health and safety the highest priority in the operation of the venue (you can read about the measures in full here).
