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.

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.

Have a Fright in Foundry Wood with The Blair Witch Project

On Friday 6th May Leamington Underground Cinema and Playing The Field present The Blair Witch Project at a special, extra spooky outdoor screening at Leamington Spa’s Foundry woods.

Join us for this classic tale of a group of student filmmakers searching for evidence of something evil lurking in the woodland of Burkittsville, Maryland.

Prior to the screening we will have an exclusive video introduction from a supernatural expert detailing a dark chapter in the occult history of Leamington Spa which links the foundry site to a centuries old tragedy, a mysterious suicide and the satanic rituals of Aleister Crowley.

To keep your nerves calm and you thirst quenched there will be a licensed bar as well as hot food on sale. Bench seating will be available, but please bring your own camping chairs if you would like to have a slightly comfier journey into the horror of the woods.

Tickets are still available at the time of writing from wegottickets, specifically from:

Doors open at 7.30pm, with the film action commencing at 8.30pm. As this event is outdoors and at night, please dress to keep warm and dry – feel free to perform any pagan rituals you may know to keep the weather agreeable.
