AIRPLANE! is our January Screening

Now fully revealed, our screening on January 21st is the comedic classic AIRPLANE!

To help comprehensively blow away the early 2018 blues, this timelessly hilarious film will be preceded by a very special film quiz, with some suitably cinematic prizes on offer.

The fun kicks off at The Drawing Board from 7pm – tickets are just £8 on the door or in advance from wegottickets right here. You can also buy tickets from the venue in advance.

The Drawing Board will be offering some thematic drinking fun to help you overcome any Ted Striker-esque drinking problems you may have.

Get out there and win one for the zipper!

New Mystery Film Screening Announced For 21st January

mystery header.png

According to economists, philosophers, sociologists, journalists, medical professionals, religious leaders, the military and your mum – the second half of January is definitely the most depressing time of the year.

So to counter this Leamington Underground Cinema and The Drawing Board are putting on an especially entertaining film event on Sunday 21st January to cheer you up for the final stretch before February, when the Christmas adverts will no doubt start up again.

To make things especially interesting, tickets for this slap up movie treat will be half price if you buy them before we announce exactly what we will be showing.

So for the risk-taking, YOLO punters, tickets are £4, if you wait until after Christmas to find out what is happening, the price is £8.

It’s all a bit Deal or No Deal, but good (and with a strict no Noel Edmonds guarantee).

This event will be happening on both floors of the Drawing Board, with special immersive drinking opportunities on hand for the thematically inclined.

(Also available at the bar in The Drawing Board)

The funniest film ever made, but probably not on purpose

Tickets £8 from: http://www.wegottickets.com/event/367987
Facebook Event: https://www.facebook.com/events/1269020643109410/

This weekend, LUC screens The Room, a legendary piece of cinema that has been described as ‘Completely Bonkers’, ‘A Cult Phenomenon’ and perhaps most tellingly ‘The funniest film ever made, but probably not on purpose’.

The room plus fb flyerThere really isn’t anything else like The Room, the vision of a singular director, writer and star Tommy Wiseau – a mysterious figure both on-screen and off. To say this is a bad film is a bit like saying that Harold Shipman was a bad doctor – it might be technically correct, but it is understating the matter to a spectacular degree.

After watching the disturbingly erotic opening 15 minutes (probably through your fingers) The Room provides an unironic cavalcade of bizarrely pointless plotting, nonsensical dialogue and very, very small games of American Football.

Centred around a tortured love triangle involving rose-obsessed bum-displayer Johnny, his bored sociopath girlfriend Lisa and his over-declared best friend Mark, The Room fails in every conceivable manner and as a result is one of the most entertaining film going experiences around.

This is a film to shout at, laugh at, converse with and to throw plastic spoons at, but as Tommy Wiseau himself says: “You can laugh, you can cry, you can express yourself, but please don’t hurt each other.”

Wise Words.

Our screening of the room is preceded by the return of LUC Film Bingo, spot the films, tick them off on your bingo card and win some cool prizes including tickets to our forthcoming screenings at Leam Boat Centre and Foundry Wood!

Doors 7.30pm // Bingo 7.45pm // Film 8.30pm // Tickets are £8 which includes one free game of film bingo other games are £1 per bingo card. Tickets are on sale now from wegottickets.

This screening is at North Hall, Leamington Spa, which is the same building as Heartbreak productions, click here for a google map, or check the high res directions below…

THEY LIVE & PREDATOR screenings at Leamington Camouflage Festival

LUC is teaming up with Playing The Field for two camouflage themed screenings at Foundry Wood on 2nd & 3rd September as part of the Leamington Camouflage Festival.

they live flyer 1On Friday 2nd, we present present John Carpenter’s classic 1988 cult satire action flick They Live.

When a drifter, played by Rowdy Roddy Piper, comes into possession of some very special sunglasses, he is able to see the world as it really is – an oppressive nightmare where the ruling class are really a bunch of evil aliens manipulating the masses behind a seamless facade. It also contains the longest fight scene in cinema history – so something for everyone.

Also at this screening Dr Daniel Winchester will be presenting his findings on paranormal extraterrestrial happenings in the local area – you will be shocked and amazed.

BUY THEY LIVE TICKETS NOW FOR £12

A team of commandos on what they think is a rescue mission in a Central American jungle find themselves being stalked by an invisible extra-terrestrial hunter. It gets messy.

At this screening Dr Winchester will also be presenting his findings on a shocking tale of extraterrestrial invasion in Leamington Spa – oh yes.
