Repo Man screening – 27th July!!!

LUC presents Alex Cox’s Repo Man – the legendary 1984 cult classic starring Emilio Estevez and Harry Dean Stanton – on Saturday 27th July at the Spa Centre cinema.

A young punk is initiated into the bizarre world of vehicle repossession after helping to steal a car. Everyone is looking for 1964 Chevy Malibu being driven by an escaped mad scientist, with something very top secret and highly dangerous in the boot. A midnight movie classic that takes a very sideways tilt at Reagan’s America with amazing soundtrack featuring the likes of Black Flag and Iggy Pop.

Doors 7.15, Starts 7.30

Tickets £6 from wegottickets

SHOWGIRLS ! THURSDAY NIGHT!

This Thursday, 27th June 2019, head to the Spa Centre cinema for a rare screening of 1995 disasterpiece masterpiece, Showgirls.

Considered both a trashy mess and a subversive cult treat, this is a no-holds barred, everything turned up to eleven, take no prisoners affair.

Showgirls tells the story of Nomi, an angry drifter (and even angrier stripper) and her quest to make it to the big time in Las Vegas – this film has outrageous style, genuinely insane acting and a script featuring some of the most ridiculous lines uttered in cinema history. It is amazing.

Doors open at 7.15pm and the film action starts at 7.30pm. Tickets are £6 on the door or in advance from wegottickets.

Don’t Miss Mandy on Thursday Evening

Seriously, you don’t want to miss the chance to see (and hear) the brilliant cult madness of Mandy on the big screen on Thursday at the Spa Centre Cinema.

Tickets are £6 in advance from wegottickets or over the counter at Underboard on Court Street (open Wednesday from midday) and also directly from the venue.

There will be tickets available on the door, but buy in advance if you want to be absolutely sure of getting in.

If you need any more encouragement, here is the trailer, re-scored in the most appropriate way possible…

Leamington Underground Cinema: Mandy

screen shot 2019-01-14 at 15.17.39
Leamington Underground Cinema returns to The Spa Centre Cinema on the 21st February 2019 with a screening of Panos Cosmatos’ brilliant acid-tinged, arthouse, horror-revenge movie, Mandy.
 
Outsiders Red and Mandy lead a loving and peaceful existence. When their pine-scented haven is savagely destroyed by a cult led by the sadistic Jeremiah Sand, Red is catapulted into a phantasmagoric journey filled with bloody vengeance.
 
Starring Nicolas Cage, Andrea Riseborough and Linus Roach – this is a hyper-stylish, blood-spattered, synth-drenched masterpiece that deserves to be seen and heard on a big screen with the sound turned up.
 
You will not be disappointed.
Running Time: 121 minutes
Rated: 18
Doors: 7.15 Starts: 7.30pm
 
Tickets £6 from:
The Spa Centre & Town Hall Box Office

ELSTREE 1976 gains Furry Death From Outer Space & £5 Student tickets

An exciting addition to the programme for our screening of Elstree 1976 is professor Daniel Winchester’s short, but disturbingly formed, new documentary ‘Furry Death From Outer Space’.

This devastating expose will be playing before the main feature at 8.00pm. This will be the only live public screening of this important film, so if you are a fan of the professor’s previous work (The Tidings Of Restless Nell and They Walk Amongst Us), you will not want to miss this event.
