SEE FILM DIFFERENTLY - 'A Clockwork Orange'

40 years after its groundbreaking release, Volkswagen celebrates with screening in original film location

An exclusive screening of Stanley Kubrick’s four-time Oscar nominated cult classic, A Clockwork Orange, is set to take place on Thursday 2 June at Brunel University in West London – one of the key locations featured in the groundbreaking British film.

The event is the latest in Volkswagen’s See Film Differently series, designed to provide film fans with a behind the scenes style insight into some of the most memorable and iconic British films.

It follows original location screenings of An American Werewolf in London which was held inside ZSL London Zoo, gangster classic Get Carter, shown at Newcastle Racecourse and Trainspotting, screened at the Royal Scottish Academy; all notable locations featured in the classic films.

Fans of A Clockwork Orange, which celebrates its 40th anniversary this year, will be able to watch the film in Brunel University’s lecture theatre.  This serves as the setting for one of the film’s unforgettable scenes in which Alex, played by Malcolm McDowell, is subjected to experimental aversion therapy.

The event will also feature a one-off exhibition of original stills and film memorabilia provided by the Stanley Kubrick Estate and TASCHEN, publishers of The Stanley Kubrick Archives.

In addition, those fortunate enough to attend will be treated to complimentary cinema style food in the ‘Moloko Bar’, a specially themed exhibition space inspired by the milk drink favoured by Alex and his gang in the film.

Tickets for the event are free and available courtesy of Volkswagen through an online ticket draw.  For the chance to win tickets, film fans should log on to, and register their interest.  Ticket applications close at midday on Friday 27 May and all lucky winners will be informed on Friday 27 May.  Tickets will be allocated at random.
