Videodrome 7th October // Spa Centre / £4

After a self imposed hiatus for spiritual, mental and evil commercial reasons, LUC is back to bring some well deserved cult, offbeat and non-mainstream movie action to the culturally starved masses of Leamington Spa.

We are planning a series of ace film screenings at the Spa Centre Cinema over the next few months – starting with  David Cronenberg’s 1983 masterpiece, Videodrome.

We’ve set the ticket price at just £4 because:
– We want to get a really good crowd in so that we can get more screenings lined up (there might even be some trailers at the first screening – you never know)
– These screenings are being run as a completely transparent non-profit exercise – any surplus will be put back into the venue and licence costs for the next screening, LUC is going to publish the numbers afterwards and everything.
– We want to make enjoying some big screen, non-mainstream, cult movies an event and an experience.

So please grab some tickets asap for this screening of a truly brilliant and thoughtful horror/sci-fi/S&M/thriller/conspiracy flick. You can grab then as usual online via http://www.wegottickets.com/leamingtonundergroundcinema or from Underboard on Court Street (open everyday from noon).

There is a Facebook event page lurking at:

Please invite all of your friends, mortal enemies, one-night-stands, work colleagues, pets, support staff, creditors, debtors, dance partners and pen pals.

One Week Until Elstree 1976

Next Saturday, Leamington Spa will be getting distinctly star wars-ey – with the first ‘Spa Wars’ event during the day, followed by our screening of ace doc, Elstree 1976, in the evening.

Both events take place at the big, gothic All Saints church located at the bottom of the parade.

Doors for the screening are at 7.30pm and the film action starts at 8.00pm, Following the screening there will be a Q&A featuring producer Hank Starrs and cast member of Elstree 1976 (and coincidentally Star Wars), John Chapman, all conducted by Leamington’s very own Nic Pillai.

Tickets are £10 from: https://www.wegottickets.com/event/407159

If you are a poor tax-dodging student however, it is just £5!:  http://www.wegottickets.com/event/422938

Some examples of the critical praise for this cool film, which has a very respectable 80% on Rotten Tomatoes:

“Elstree 1976 is a must-see for Star Wars fanatics, and coming shortly after the much-hyped franchise adrenaline shot that is The Force Awakens, it’s almost shocking to hear firsthand accounts of the first film’s way-under-the-radar status.”

“In telling a small story of bit players, the director, Jon Spira, captures a more universal picture of the droplets of fame created by a pop-culture tidal wave.”

“A deadpan documentary with notes of wistful irony …”

“In 1976, during the hottest summer on record, Star Wars was shot in suburban North London. Nobody involved had any idea how big the film would become, many couldn’t even remember the title.
 
Yet for the bit-part actors and extras, their faces hidden in masks and helmets, this seemingly insignificant job would go on to colour their lives even four decades later.
 
ELSTREE 1976 is a portrait of a cross-section of these people; from the man inside the most iconic villain in film history to the guy whose character was completely cut from the final film. It tells the stories of their lives and explores the eccentric community they have formed, traveling the world, signing autographs for fans.”
