The Wicker Man returns to Logan
The cult film The Wicker Man is to be screened at Logan Botanic Garden, near Stranraer, where some of the original movie was shot as part of the South West Film Festival.
The 1973 mystery horror film was partially filmed in Port Logan with Logan Botanic Garden featuring as Lord Summerisle’s garden. Now filmgoers are being given the chance to see Britt Ekland, Christopher Lee and Edward Woodward in the original production in the stunning setting of Logan Botanic Garden.
Garden Curator, Richard Baines said: “This part of Dumfries and Galloway is famed for being the location for parts of The Wicker Man movie so I thought it was the perfect fit for the South West Film Festival. During the 2012 Summer Olympics opening ceremony the film was included as part of a sequence that celebrated British cinema. What better way to see a movie than to sit outdoors in the spot where some of the scenes were filmed.’’
The Wicker Man will be shown on a large screen outdoors at Logan Botanic Garden on Saturday 27 August at 8.30pm. Refreshments available or bring a picnic.
Tickets £6 can be purchased at the Logan Shop. Call to reserve on 01776 860231. Over 15s only.
